Mindfulness in Business
When running a business, the most valuable asset is your mind. Mindfulness as brain training optimises the mind’s performance so it can function consistently at its maximum capacity.
How does mindfulness do this?
Practicing mindfulness allows a person to work with stressful situations in a relaxed and calm manner so they can focus on the task at hand. This redirection of energy increases attention which helps with productivity.
Mindfulness has been defined as the cultivation of attention by the leading authority in western science, John Kabat-Zinn. It does this by developing the minds ability to distance itself from thoughts so it can remain focussed on one thing at a time.
A Filter of Responsibilities
Mindfulness teaches a person how to not react to situations. This means that if a person is faced with several demands, through mindfulness they are able to assess the urgency of the tasks without an emotional involvement. This leads to the best decisions being made in the best time.
There is a direct link between stress and sickness. When mind and body are disconnected through stress it affects the immune system causing a person to fall ill. Studies have shown that a frequent mindfulness practice can help boost our immune systems which reduces the chances of being ill.
By helping eliminate mental mindfulness opens more creative thoughts and ideas inside and outside of the office. The cause is usually a mind that is cluttered with too many thoughts which create a fog through which a person cannot see. Mindfulness clears the fog.
