Mindfulness is paying attention on purpose in the present moment without judgement and with curiosity. We often find ourselves lost from the present moment, either replaying the past or leaping into the future. This can have profound impact on our performance and leadership.
Mindfulness training techniques help us become present to what is happening in our lives right now as well as learn about our relationship to what is happening. When we become aware and notice what we are experiencing we have the space to gain insight and consciously take action rather than react out of habit or triggers.
Paying clearer attention results in an enhanced ability to perform and improve our mental and physical well-being by:
Maintaining awareness in stressful situations
Improving coping strategies
