Fast Company on Mindfulness and Meditation:
In Fast Company’s 6 Steps To A More Mindful Company Culture mindfulness is defined as;
"paying attention in a particular way: on purpose, in the present moment, and non-judgmentally."
The article goes on to say;
“A mindful corporate culture will value substance over style, and stress single-minded focus over multi-tasking. Most importantly, it will focus on sensing and responding to what customers are doing right now.”
Here is mindfulness guru Ron Alexander’s Method for Mindfulness Meditation:
- Sit in a comfortable cross-legged position, or in a straight-backed chair with your feet on the floor, or lie down. If seated, close your eyes gently; if you lie down, keep your eyes slightly open.
- Set an alarm. Try meditating for between 12 and 20 minutes.
- Concentrate on your breath as it enters and leaves your nostrils, or on the rise and fall of your belly.
- When thoughts, feelings, or sensations arise, don’t try too hard to push them away. Mentally acknowledge them, but then try to concentrate anew on your breathing.
How do you practice mindfulness in your life and in your work?
