How To Live In The Moment And Get Work Done At The Same Time

How To Live In The Moment And Get Work Done At The Same Time | MCBT | Scoop.it
Clearing your mind and living in the moment isn't about putting productivity on hold. You can be more profitable with less brain clutter.

 

A stretched-thin, stressed-out workplace is not the workplace of the future. It falls on business managers to change this culture and promote focus and compassion--a concept making the rounds in workplace circles known as “mindfulness.” This is the technique of tuning out the noise and focusing deliberately on what is important.

 

Studies have found that mindfulness at work can increase engagement, productivity, innovation, and measurable business results.

 

Focus, well-being, happiness, and compassion are skills that complement executive behaviors and can be learned, practiced, and mastered.

Silent retreats’ rising popularity poses a challenge: How to handle the quiet

Silent retreats’ rising popularity poses a challenge: How to handle the quiet | MCBT | Scoop.it

People visiting silent retreats in a noisy, plugged-in world can stress about how to handle the quiet. Although participation in silent retreats is on the rise, many of those preparing to spend time at the hermitage said they were so unaccustomed to unstructured time alone that they made to-do lists — then feared they were doing “solitude” wrong and scrapped them. They agonized over what to bring and wear and eat, as if they were traveling to an exotic land.

Brooke Levis, MA CPC's insight:

Having ventured into "silent retreat" zone, I can understand the anxiety in preparation.  I initiate a 24 hour loving kindness contract with myself after I check-in at Self Realization Fellowship, Encinitas, CA.  I fully acknowledge that my nerves, muscle tension and attention focus may be on hyper alert and I may feel significant discomfort the first 24 hours.

 

Acceptance and Commitment Therapuetic tools are my lifeline enablingt transition into mindfulness and sink into the peace of being in the moment.

Silence is a practice. You want to begin with cultivating quiet at home in small increments. Even on a daily basis, taking 5 minutes here and there can build up your silence "muscle." I've written about silence a lot. See these links:

6 Steps To A More Mindful Corporate Culture

6 Steps To A More Mindful Corporate Culture | MCBT | Scoop.it

"Mindful" is not a word typically associated with business--but it should be. Most companies have inadvertently created a culture that more closely resembles the behavior of a ten-year-old with ADD than it does a smart and disciplined organization. We're confident that a few highly successful firms will transform their corporate culture around a considered, mindful approach--and that such firms will enjoy success in the decades ahead. A mindful corporate culture will value substance over style, and stress single-minded focus over multi-tasking.
