The Power Of Mindfulness

If you're new to all this internal gazing, you might be skeptical of many of the claims we make. Mindfulness and the need for it are becoming more mainstream every year, but there are still those who question its basic principles and challenge the very notion that we have power over shaping the quality of our lives.

Contemplating Mindfulness At Work: An Integrative Review -- Journal of Management, 2015; 42 (1): 114 DOI:  10.1177/0149206315617003

A comprehensive management based research study concludes that mindfulness in the workplace improves employee focus, attention, and behavior. 

Injecting a corporate culture with mindfulness not only improves focus, but the ability to manage stress and how employees work together. 

Organizations such as Google, Aetna, Mayo Clinic, and the United States Marine Corps use mindfulness training to improve workplace functioning. The results of this latest research indicates this approach can improve a range of workplace functions. 

The research indicates significant and diverse benefits of mindfulness coincides with growing practical interest in mindfulness training nationally and worldwide. For example, British Parliament has recently launched a mindfulness initiative called "Mindful Nation UK" that leverages mindfulness to benefit diverse sectors and improve national health, productivity and flourishing.

Among the new study's conclusions:

  • Mindfulness appears to positively impact human functioning overall. Research in such disciplines as psychology, neuroscience and medicine provide a wealth of evidence that mindfulness improves attention, cognition, emotions, behavior and physiology.
  • Specifically, mindfulness has been shown to improve three qualities of attention -- stability, control and efficiency. The human mind is estimated to wander roughly half of our waking hours, but mindfulness can stabilize attention in the present. Individuals who completed mindfulness training were shown to remain vigilant longer on both visual and listening tasks.
  • Although mindfulness is an individual quality, initial evidence suggests that it affects interpersonal behavior and workgroup relationships.
  • Mindfulness may improve relationships through greater empathy and compassion -- suggesting mindfulness training could enhance workplace processes that rely on effective leadership and teamwork.

It is prescribed on the NHS in some areas to prevent recurrent depression, with 2,256 people completing eight-week courses last year. The course reduces the likelihood of relapse by almost a third, according to an analysis of nine trials. In the US, the NBA basketball champions, Golden State Warriors, are the latest poster boys for the practice after their coach, Steve Kerr, made mindfulness one of the team’s core values."
  • Mindfulness-based cognitive therapy (MBCT) has been shown to be at least as effective as antidepressants at preventing relapse and, in a two-year trial by Willem Kuyken’s team, 44% of the MBCT cohort relapsed compared with 47% on pills. In one trial of 173 people, it was also found to reduce the severity of current depression, with an average 37% reduction in symptoms. It is being taught widely in the private sector with qualified MBCT teachers delivering courses in parish halls, workplaces and beyond.
