The pace of life today means that leaders are almost always “on.” Carving out time for family, friends and self-care often takes a backseat to pressing issues. Many in business today are turning to meditation as a way to unplug, refocus and increase self-awareness.

Why take time from your busy life to meditate? The American Psychological Association says that boosting mindfulness (moment-to-moment awareness) through meditation:

  • Decreases depression
  • Decreases rumination (compulsively focused attention on some aspect of life)
  • Increases working memory
  • Decreases stress
  • Increases focus

There are more benefits, but need we list them? (You ruminators can find them here.)


Find your mojo going through mindfulness. We’d love to help.
