Why Mindfulness Matters

Why Does Mindfulness Matter?

Working in today’s fast-paced, always-on environments is taking its toll on leaders and employees.

Do you relate to any of the following:

  • Feeling overworked and/or working with limited resources?
  • Feeling uncomfortable with the blurring of boundaries between work and the rest of your life?
  • Unable to get control of all the information coming in through the internet, emails, and umpteen number of devices you own?
  • Constantly feeling distracted and unable to complete tasks

If any (or all) of these resonate with you, mindfulness can help.

Mindfulness develops your ability to pay attention with focus and clarity. It increases your awareness of the workings of your mind, helps reduce distractedness, creates better balance in your life and improves your ability to respond to even challenging situations with understanding and wisdom.

Mindfulness and the Brain

Groundbreaking research over the past few decades has demonstrated that attention can be trained. Recent findings in neuroscience show that our brains are more malleable than we thought. This neuroplasticity of the brain extends throughout our adult lives and is not limited to our earlier years, as previous believed. As we train our attention, we strengthen and even create new neural networks in the brain. So, just as we go to the gym for our physical body, we can train our attentional muscle with mindfulness.
