Mindfulness At Work
Moment-to-moment awareness is what mindfulness is all about. The fundamental philosophy of mindfulness, which originated as a Buddhist idea, is self-awareness. Mindfulness cultivates a greater knowledge of oneself and one’s surroundings. Your opinions and emotions are very real to you, so you don’t respond or evaluate them. You gain control of the proclivity towards emotional outbursts.
Mindfulness improves mental maturity and our capacity to control feelings both internally and externally. Mindfulness and its stress-reduction effects have since been attributed to a variety of physiological advantages, including lower blood pressure, better memory, and decreased depression and anxiety.
