A new research has revealed that living in the moment not only improves your overall health and mood but also enhances productivity at the workplace.
Mindfulness is often viewed as a valuable management tool that can lift an entire workplace. Injecting a corporate culture of mindfulness not only improves focus but also boosts the ability to manage stress and how employees work together.
The approach can improve a range of workplace functions and appears to positively impact overall human functioning.
Christopher Lyddy from the School of Management at Case Western Reserve University in the US said, companies have been reticent to offer mindfulness training because it was seen as something fluffy, esoteric and spiritual but that’s changing.
Organisations such as search engine giant Google, global health care companies like Aetna and Mayo Clinic and the United States Marine Corps are already using mindfulness training to improve workplace functioning.
The team considered 4,000 scientific papers on various aspects of mindfulness, distilling the information into an accessible guide documenting the impact mindfulness has on how people think, feel, act, relate and perform at work.
A small but growing body of work in the management area suggests mindfulness is linked to better workplace functioning.
Individuals who completed mindfulness training remained vigilant longer on both visual and listening tasks.
