Mindfulness Practices: reducing stress, increasing effectiveness Mindfulness is being embraced by companies all over the world. Lessons on how to learn it are the most popular on offer at Google HQ. Companies that encourage mindfulness report that they see absenteeism falling, productivity rising and business improving. Mindfulness is about being aware of what is happening in the present moment and responding appropriately, with clarity of mind and heart. Many of us today find ourselves feeling overwhelmed with deadlines, seduced by never-ending input from our digital devices and stuck in a manner of living where we are reactive, stressed and often caught up in conflict and anger. We find that our minds are rarely focused on what we are doing but preoccupied with regrets about the past or worries about the future. Consequently we use up much valuable time and energy and end up feeling depleted and exhausted.
