What is mindfulness in the workplace?

 Mindfulness by definition means present-centered attention and awareness. It helps with mood, behavior, productivity, creativity, improved focus, and more. Mindfulness has gone mainstream with companies as diverse as Google, Aetna, General Mills and Target, all having built extensive programs to foster mindful practices among their workers. Large companies like these continue to invest in teaching their employees mindfulness techniques and practices because they see results, and they know it works.


What is mindfulness good for?

 According to a UNC Kenan-Flagler Business School study, the benefits of mindfulness can lead to “improvements in innovative thinking, communication skills and more appropriate reactions to stress.” Mindfulness has also been shown to reduce anxiety both personally and in the workplace.
