We have long envied the meditation and lack of anxiety that monks have practiced for thousands of years. This has pushed people for the longest time to try and practice meditating in hopes of relieving our stress. Scientists, with the help of medical imaging and technology, have also pursued the effects of meditation and mindfulness in hopes of applying what seemed to be a psychological phenomena in a an actual neurological manner for treating drug addictions, cancer, anxiety, and depression, just to name a few. While these are outstanding physical and psychological benefits, meditation and mindfulness can even be taken into the context of trying to enhance creativity and productivity in executive work environments.
