Mindfulness in the Workplace: K.I.S.S. it for a week!

Whilst practicing mindfulness proficiently may mean becoming armed with a good depot stocked with mindfulness theory, a good dosage of meditation practice, as well as regular ongoing mindfulness-based routines, just like any other gym workout, awareness and focus practice alone, will not change your life but will rather act as preparation to run the life, work, exams or everyday ‘marathons’ and ‘sprint’ of life. As such, it will not pay dividend even to the most consistent, driven and practice-attuned meditator if all their practice is on the mat, stool or still with their eyes closed in their quiet spot, meditation hall or mindfulness class. On the contrary, it may lead them to practising only in ‘compartments’ and, therefore, not  transferring their practice to everyday life. On a...

Sharp Focus and Open Awareness

Building up the Foundations of Mindfulness: Sharp Focus and Open Awareness In the previous article (Mindless in the workplace: have you P.A.I.D. the price?) we focussed on the notion that we (humans, people…workers) develop automaticity towards indulging in increasing levels of distracting thoughts, conversations, images, memories and many more expressions of the mind’s ‘doing-for-its-own-sake’ clutter. We also established that, generally speaking, the trend in the workplace has been one of increasingly spending time trying to catch-up on infinitely growing to-do lists, feelings of decreased productivity (over time), leading to needing to spend more time working (or working faster than usual as a compensatory strategy). We concluded by proposing that becoming a ‘human doing’ (…as opposed to ‘human being’) seems the only possible solution but typically means we would...

First Steps in Mastering the mind

Attention Economy: The MYTH of multitasking and TWO rules to become more efficient. In the previous article (Mindless in the workplace: have you P.A.I.D. the price?) we focussed on the notion that we (humans, people…workers) develop automaticity towards indulging, often without conscious awareness of it, in increasing levels of distracting thoughts, conversations, images, memories and many more expressions of the mind’s ‘doing-for-its-own-sake’ clutter. We also established that, generally speaking, the trend in the workplace has been one of increasingly spending time trying to catch-up on infinitely growing TO-DO lists, feeling less productive over time, leading to needing to spend more time working (or working faster then usual – right?) and therefore to ever-so tightening deadlines – in turn leading to reduced productivity and greater stress about...

Mindless in the workplace: have you P.A.I.D. the price?

Some typical work habits and distractions With a third of our lives (and usually around half of our waking day - or more) working in our job, looking after the children, family or clients, it makes perfect sense to fantasise as to how somehow we could find a life ‘recipe’ with less effort but better quality and experience of work. These fantasies tend not to be about spending more but about spending less time at work and more having fun, being with those with love, or perhaps doing something pleasurable. Do you find yourself doing that? I do and it is quite catchy. But that is just a fantasy right? It’s just one of those distracting thoughts we may simply have ahead of a pile of...
