Practicing Mindfulness at Work
A new Huffington Post article discusses how to get started with mindfulness by practicing at work. The article discusses how to take advantage of breaks and advises that we should at least occasionally step away from devices and experience the rest of the world. These breaks allow us to become more focused and productive.
“Counterintuitive as it may seem, a growing body of research suggests that setting aside work to take breaks actually increases our productivity. However, when we do take breaks, the majority of us are taking low-quality breaks without paying attention to what will truly help us focus when we return to work. And the longer we work without interruption, the more our productivity suffers.”
