Padmasree Warrior


Padmasree Warrior is the Chief Technology Officer at Cisco Systems, a global corporation that specializes in networking equipment. Despite her expertise and knowledge of technology, Warrior also realizes that it can be detrimental to our health—and that meditation can provide relief. In a previous position managing 22,000 employees, Warrior made time to meditate and go technology-free in order to clear her mind and manage her tasks with aplomb. “It’s almost like a reboot for your brain and your soul,” she said. “It makes me so much calmer when I’m responding to e-mails later.” Warrior practices meditation each evening, and spends each Saturday device-free. Could you adopt this CTO’s practices to improve your own life?
