Mindfulness for Artists with Nick Demos
I’ve been noticing a theme lately. As entrepreneurs, we’re told, “Shift your mindset and things will change for the better.” “Sure,” you say, “I’ll shift my mindset. But HOW?” I invited my friend Nick Demos, a Tony Award-winning performer, producer, and director, to tackle this question in today’s episode. Nick helps artists find focus, calm, and clarity using yoga, breathwork, and meditation.
