Mindfulness at work

Mindfulness – just paying attention. This is crucial to doing any work well.

Practised regularly, mindfulness:

It can have external (e.g. dance performance) or internal (body awareness) focus.

Classical definition: “Mindfulness means paying attention in a particular way; on purpose, in the present moment, and nonjudgmentally”. – Jon Kabat-Zinn

In the last few years many companies have realised potential benefits of mindfulness courses for their employees. Several case studies have been gathered on the independent website Mindfulnet.org http://www.mindfulnet.org/. This site also lists a lot of useful information for both new to the subject and practitioners.
