Mindfulness is essentially about awareness. It means being focused in the moment and not allowing yourself to be distracted by what happened at that meeting yesterday or what tasks must be completed tomorrow.
If you need a little more encouragement, here are a couple more benefits to invest a moment:
Mindfulness helps to build resilience. Practicing mindfulness techniques and can decrease the effects of anxiety and stress and has the potential to enhance your sense of resilience.
Mindfulness can strengthen emotional intelligence. Being mindful helps to improve our levels of patience and ability to regulate our emotions. Having an inner sense of calm makes it easier for us to cope when things don’t go our way. It also means that we’re better equipped to deal with workplace disagreement or differences of opinion and are less emotional in our reaction to events.
Mindfulness promotes creativity. Being relaxed as a result of practicing mindfulness means that we are also giving ourselves the opportunity to be more creative. Empirical research suggests that mindfulness enables greater insights and more innovate thinking. And so as well as helping you to be calmer, mindfulness can encourage your innate creativity.
