Mindfulness means being present at the moment and aware of ‘what is.’ Neuroscience evidence shows that mindfulness helps to re-wire the brain for the better. Under stress, attention narrows to focus on the cause of stress and the brain’s executive functions are hijacked, adversely affecting Leaders’ performance.
Mindfulness practices re-wire the brain, helping Leaders become more aware of their habitual thought patterns and habits—so they are more able to regulate stress, focus attention, manage their emotions and perform more effectively overall. Aside from increasing mental capacity, mindfulness can also make us happier. It helps people get out of negative thought loops, makes them feel more connected to others, and helps them cultivate a sense of inner wellbeing which allows them to feel content.
