The summer is a great time to recharge.
The sunshine brightens moods. The days last longer. The warmth allows for more opportunities to be outside, enjoying nature and spending long-desired time with family and friends. These ideals encourage a focus on the present moment - also known as mindfulness.
Consciously paying attention to daily routines; listening carefully; tuning into thoughts, feelings and surroundings; and meditating in short bursts are some ways to practise being mindful.
Used in business, this restorative technique can leave lasting effects on employees and the organization. Mindfulness prompts better engagement with peers and more effective completion of tasks. It also helps with skillful decision-making; alertness; and reduces stress. Plus, it boosts productivity and teamwork - all of this just for being more aware.
Mindfulness – what a power tool!
