Businesses, from Commonwealth Bank Australia to Intel, Google and the small companies adopted the mindfulness-based leadership programs and are nurturing mindful workplaces.

From the Mindfulness Training Course Teacher, Anne Hartley:

Anne Hartley, life coach Hart Life Coaching founder

I must admit mindfulness was something that never resonated with me, I’ve always been a person who gets things done. I’m a master multi-tasker, so the idea of focusing on this moment didn’t appeal as I felt being mindful would change who I am.

Then I started to notice how life was flying by, I felt as if my life would be over and I wouldn’t have enjoyed it, so I started practising being mindful, for short periods every day. As I slowed down the pace of my life, I found I was still able to get as much done, I was enjoying life more, I felt more in control. And for me, the amazing thing is that I can still multi-task, but I am very conscious of how and when I do this, and if it works for me.

The first time I implemented being mindful for longer periods of time was when I was in a difficult relationship with another person. We couldn’t resolve our conflict, and we were on a long road trip that could have been miserable for both of us. I couldn’t escape it. I couldn’t fix it. So, I chose to practice mindfulness, to stay in the moment and observe without judgement, and to accept the things I could not change. Being mindful helped me turn a potentially difficult experience into something enjoyable and what I got out of it, apart from harmony, was that I felt good about myself.

Mindfulness has the potential to change the world, and we are only just starting to understand how it can help us. Mindfulness can help us manage pain, this I know from personal experience. It can heal relationships because when we are mindful people feel heard. It can change our financial situation, health and even support us to change limiting beliefs.

I hope you’ll join me in teaching mindfulness, it may well change your life.

Constant high stress leads to health issues, anxiety and depression. The need for a solution to this epidemic led a growing number of scientists to investigate the benefits of mindfulness, which now provides as a science-backed answer that can improve every areas of our lives.

Higher stress resilience

Mindful living doesn’t only help to deal with immediate stress, it also increases our resilience.

Better pain management

The ability to manage chronic pain is significantly higher in people who practise mindfulness and meditation, than in those who don’t.

Improved sleep quality

Mindfulness techniques can help improve insomnia issues dramatically, without the need for addictive medications or expensive treatments.

Greater attention

The ability to focus on what is happening, right here right, now amidst a hectic life is one of the top benefits that results from mindfulness training.

Improved work engagement, efficiency and work performance

A large body of research confirms that workers and leaders who have trained in mindfulness perform better at their jobs and feel better while doing it.

A higher sense of personal happiness

Mindfulness provides simple, accessible and powerful tools for being happy.

Mindfulness in the News

Lady GaGa & Dalai Lama Promote Mindfulness

In an unusual pairing, pop star Lady GaGa and the Dalai Lama gave a unique perspective on how nurturing mindfulness is an initial step toward world peace.

“Change in humanity must start from individuals,” said Dalai Lama and Lady GaGa added, “We are unified in our humanity, and the only thing that we all know and we all appreciate in one another is kindness, and this has to come before all things.”

Mindfulness as a way to nurture kindness and build inner peace is a path they both recommend.

The results showed an overall improvement in stress management, ability to focus, creativity and innovation.
