Mindfulness practice reduces stress, anxiety and worries by managing how we deal with our thoughts and our emotional reaction to those thoughts. It also increases our resilience to deal with constant pressure and difficult life demands. Mindfulness training teaches us how to reduce the distractions from our working environment as well as our constant stream of thoughts so that we can improve our focus of attention on our tasks at hand, thus improving our effectiveness in everything that we do.

Mindfulness is the quality and power of our mind that can be developed to become aware of what’s happening without automatic judgement and without interference. Mindfulness was practiced by our ancestors to train their mind and body interactions to alleviate their self-inflicted emotional and physical suffering. Today, it is being expanded and used in medicine, psychology, business, education… and is growing in popularity.

“Mindfulness practice gives leaders the ability to relate … to the steady stream of thoughts that can clutter the present moment and obscure the stillness from which true innovation and clear-seeing emerges”
