We recommend you have a look at this interview in the Huffington Post of New York Times writer David Gelles about his new book, Mindful Work.
From the article:
Roughly, “mindfulness” refers to the practice of consciously paying attention to the present, using tactics like meditation, yoga and breathing. For many people, the need for mindfulness feels particularly urgent these days when we’re all choking on an endless stream of tweets, emails, texts and other “feeds” — all of them tearing little bits of our attention away from whatever we’re actually doing.
Executive summary: mindfulness does work. It’s great to read that certain progressive board chairs and CEOs are seeing that bringing a practice of mindfulness into the workplace benefits workers in many ways. Stress reduction and a feeling of well-being are real job perks which employees can incorporate into their non-work lives.
