What is Mindfulness? – Rekha Patadiya

What is Mindfulness?Mindfulness

  • Our attention is hijacked by our thoughts and emotions, by our concerns, by our worries for the future, and our regrets and memories of the past.
  • Mindfulness is awareness of the present moment. It is about learning to pay attention, in the present moment, and without judgment.
  • It can be trained like a muscle – training attention to be where you want it to be.
  • Be director of your life: mindfulness reduces your tendency to react on autopilot, it is about allowing you to choose how you respond.

Why care?

In a complex, fast moving environment it becomes more and more important to consciously navigate yourself and your teams. Mindfulness builds the core emotional intelligence skills needed to increase well-being and become an effective self-leader as well as a leader of others.

It‘s scientifically validated that practicing mindfulness has various beneficial effects on our well-being, e.g.:

  • Increased emotional intelligence
  • Regulated emotions, reduced stress
  • Act and react adequately to situations
  • Increased focus and attention
