We'd all like to feel and be calm, purposeful and alert. The pressures of work, adapting to change, dealing with conflict and other challenges can leave us with little time to think. There's so much to do, and so many distractions.
Mindfulness is increasingly practiced in the workplace to help people enhance their ability to concentrate, feel calm and stay in control.
Mindfulness is simple to learn, quick to put into practice and potentially very powerful.
It can help you:
- make better decisions
- focus and concentrate on the task in hand
- tune in to other people more fully so you can become a better leader
- become more self aware so you can understand the patterns in your feelings and behaviour
- reduce your stress and anxiety
