Mindfulness in the workplace

It’s all in the marketing: Even big business execs will get behind the concept of mindfulness if it leads to increased profits and a happier workforce.

Apparently a number of companies with a national presence — including Target, General Mills, and the Mayo Clinic — are installing mindfulness/meditation programs for leaders and employees. I love to see mindfulness expanded to new contexts, and the workplace is a perfect venue. Mindfulness is not just some squishy, abstract concept. It really is about improving one’s ability to focus and be in the present, which can only be a good thing for workers at any company. Way to go, guys!
