And Stanley, mindfulness as well as other mindfulness activities around Wall Street. He's got a lot of great information to share with us. Great to see you again, Douglas.


Nice to be here. Anyway, thanks for having me. My pleasure. And just to give you a very brief thumbnail sketch on Douglas, he's been at Morgan Stanley for 10 years now. And then in the project management world, currently vice president program and function head for corporate treasury. So, you know, deep in deep in the midst of what makes Wall Street run, and I know you've got a lot of a lot of great stuff to share, Douglas. But before we get started, I thought it'd be great if perhaps you get started with a little mindfulness practice to help us settle in.


Yeah, let's do that. Let's do that. So just a few minutes. And for everybody there, out there, Hello, and welcome. So we just kind of essentially stop, what we're doing is what we're looking to do is to really kind of bring in synchronize our mind and our body space together. So one things is, you know, many of us are on these zoom calls, for a long time every day, or in our kind of almost feels like we're in our computer or in the middle of our work. So let's just come synchronize up a whole desk to start out with, by just bringing yourself in a sense of that you're here, meaning any day, they hear that you're in the physical space, and just actually just take a look around the room, like the actual physical room that you're in, like you're a body in space, notice maybe the shadows of the sunlight filtering into your room, like just take a fresh look, who's probably been in this room a lot over the last year. But it's always kind of nice to to say, like I'm here and arrive into that spot. And then further coming in closer. This is the sense of you sitting on the chair. And meditation can be done in lots of different postures. But mostly in a work context. We are sitting in chairs, right.
