Capt. Carl Eisen here, founder of Mindful Aviator.
It’s no secret that quality of life in our industry is deteriorating. As pilots, we’re also held to mythical “super human” standards. Myths aside, we’re human and the stress we often experience can be inhumane. For those who struggle, asking for help may be viewed as a sign of weakness and can even risk income and career. This dangerous and tragic mindset has created an epidemic of pilots suffering in silence. My mission is providing a confidential resource for fellow aviators in practices that are supported by science to reduce stress, improve on task focus and resilience.
I offer a no-nonsense approach based on the same meditation techniques used by Marine Special Forces, Formula One drivers, NBA championship teams and more.
If you’re suffering, it’s important to understand you’re not alone! Confidential help is available. Don’t wait until you’re in full crises mode like so many others.
Put aside any “touchy feely” ideas you have about meditation and check out the free audio recordings below.
