“Mindfulness” simply means paying attention to one’s own thinking
process and emotions, and responding thoughtfully rather than reacting impulsively.
Numerous studies have now linked mindfulness to improvements in attention,
concentration, learning, memory, and executive functioning, all of which translates to
better workplace performance, innovation, and satisfaction.
Beyond performance, science speaks to the wide-ranging effects of mindfulness on health,
including better emotion regulation, a more positive shift in mood, enhanced
self-awareness, and a greater overall sense of well-being. The strongest evidence comes
from two large meta-analyses that pooled data from multiple studies.
The first finds that mindfulness eases stress, anxiety, depression, and chronic pain,
while improving mental health-related quality of life.
The second finds that mindfulness has an impact of reducing negative emotions that is on
par with behavioral treatments and psychotherapy.
