Mindfulness is about paying attention in a focused, yet relaxed way to ordinary things. With practice, you learn to be fully present, attentive, conscious and without judgment about what is happening in any given moment.
With roots in Buddhist meditation and a contemporary perspective, mindfulness is now being applied in the workplace, the medical clinic and the classroom. Studies from organizations such as the University of Wisconsin, the University of Massachusetts and the U.S. National Institutes of Health show that mindfulness affects physical brain functioning, individual health and performance.
You can benefit from the increased mental clarity, emotional resilience and physical relaxation that come from regular mindfulness practice. In leadership roles mindfulness can help you stay focused on critical tasks, be fully present in conversations, deal with stress or anxiety, make decisions with confidence, think creatively, plan calmly.
