Mindfulness Essentials

Many of us seem to always be rehearsing what’s ahead of us or rehashing what’s already happened.  We lose a lot of energy and focus when we are so busy with memories or worries that we’re not paying attention to what is going on right now.  Mindfulness is the practice of being fully aware of your thoughts, feelings, experiences and other people in the present moment. It’s a simple way for people to become aware of how their mind works by looking at mental processes without judgment, as a scientist would.  We can train our minds to stay focused so that we have more energy, more calm, and less judgment about other people and what’s happening around us. We can also learn to be less controlled by our thinking and to act with more flexibility and skill.

During this training we will:

  • Explore the roots of mindfulness and its essential elements
  • Learn how mindfulness can benefit you
  • Directly experience several simple mindfulness strategies
  • Find out how you can easily  incorporate mindfulness into your daily life


Putting Mindfulness to Work

Mindfulness can be a powerful ally in increasing effectiveness at work.   Once the basics of mindfulness have been explored, it’s easy to see how being mindful can improve our performance at work.  Mindfulness increases our awareness of how we judge ourselves and others, how we react reflexively without thought, and how we limit ourselves by dividing our attention.   Planning mindful moments throughout the day can decrease stress, increase energy and build emotional agility.
