Mindfulness is being used by employees around the world to improve performance and increase productivity.
A huge benefit of doing the mindfulness course is that, once you have completed the course and learn the necessary skills, it can be used anywhere. If you practice mindfulness regularly, it naturally incorporates itself into your everyday life.
Unfortunately, for most of us, stress is a common difficulty that many of us have to deal with daily. ‘The Stress Response’ that occurs in our bodies can have negative effects such as;
Rise in heart rate
Heightened respiration and blood pressure.
Building over time, stress can lead to serious health issues if not addressed. Mindfulness can assist us in responding to calm. Our ‘inner peace’ can often be hidden by obsessive thinking and worrying, taking the time to ‘be with’ ourselves in a moment of quiet and calm can help to uncover it.
Having a Mindfulness Attitude
Mindfulness benefits are available for you today! Some steps you can take to have a positive attitude and uncover your inner peace are;
Be non-judgemental if faced with a difficult situation: Try to take the role of an impartial observer. This means do not make any decisions positive or negative, to the situation before you just observe it. Have patience: Try to understand that things must develop in their own time.
Beginner’s Mind: Have the willingness to see the world as if it was your first time, take all that you see in. This creates an openness that is essential to being mindful.
Trust in yourself: Believe in yourself, your intuition and your abilities.
Don’t wish time forward: Just simply accept that things are happening just as they are supposed to, the way it’s meant to be.
Complete acceptance: Accept the thoughts, feelings, sensations, and beliefs that you have, and understand that they are simply those things, thoughts, feelings, sensations and beliefs.
Do not obsess when thoughts or feelings flood your body and mind: Try not to connect a thought to a feeling. Instead, let a thought or feeling come in and pass without connecting it to anything, just see them as they are and let them go.
