Mindfulness has many synonyms. You could call it focus, awareness, attention or presence. The opposite, then, could be disengagement, mindlessness, distractedness or inattention.
There are many health benefits associated with practicing mindfulness including a reduction in stress, anxiety, depression. Clarity of mind and improved focus helps to improve decision-making skills and thereby increases productivity in your family and work life.
“Keeping Your Productivity Healthy” is Mega Health At Work’s tagline and in support of that mission, we are committed to offering workshops, lunch and learns and consultative services to help you thrive.
The current wave of mindfulness therapies, mindfulness coaching, mindfulness exercises, etc., owe most (or perhaps everything) to a stress-reduction program developed in the late 1970s by Dr. Jon Kabat-Zinn, a professor of medicine emeritus at the University of Massachusetts.
