Mindfulness is a mental and emotional skills training that can help us notice where our mind is, what kind of thoughts we’re having, and how this affects our emotions and actions. Mindfulness has been applied as a therapeutic method in mainstream medicine for the past 30 years. It has also been used increasingly as an antidote for handling relentless pressure and information overload at workplace. Backed by numerous research studies, mindfulness has been shown to promote mental focus and emotional regulation, thus improving creativity and productivity, and immune system as well as relationship satisfaction.
Mindfulness has been implemented at many companies including Google, Intel and Nike. Notable universities such as Harvard Business School and Stanford University have integrated mindfulness into curriculums and also offer programs to all students, staff and community members.
