Currently, under scientific examination, it is considered by many a key element to happiness. The meditation method known as Full Attention gathers practices to improve physical and emotional well-being.
Many people cannot tolerate negative emotions, and Mindfulness helps bring understanding that thoughts and feelings are transient, promoting better emotional regulation.
A considerable part of our time is spent at work, and bringing mindfulness into this environment is a key strategy for us to extend the benefits of mindfulness throughout our lives. A relevant question would be how this practice can help us in those places. There are more and more scientific studies and successful experiments on the subject, and the results are encouraging: unified mindfulness can positively influence both the well-being and quality of life of leaders and employees as well as improving interpersonal relationships, performance, leadership collaborative and a sense of professional purpose.
One of the pillars of these benefits is attention training itself, which allows for fewer distractions and disruptions in work activities, helping to perform better on tasks.
- Mindfulness training allows for a more stable concentration, prevents mistakes and increases cognitive ability. This is particularly important in contemporary work environments, which are very prone to interruptions due to e-mail, electronic messages and access to social networks.
- Recent research shows that even short day-to-day mindfulness practices can greatly reduce the effects of these interruptions on work performance.
- In addition, people who practice mindfulness on a regular basis can more easily recognize their inner, genuine motivation for the work they do.
- The strategy helps determine what is most satisfying, sustainable, and efficient in relation to external motivation strategies, allowing the sense of professional purpose to be clearer.
- Another positive aspect of practice is the enhancement of relational and social-emotional skills, including leadership, teamwork, psychological security, empathic communication, conflict mediation, and the formation of social support networks within companies.
