Tap Into Your Unknown Superpower, Mindfulness!
One of the main principals of the Living Happier @Work program is mindfulness; it’s talked about quite a bit throughout this blog. Let’s dig a bit deeper so everyone understands what it’s really about.
According to Berkley University, mindfulness means “maintaining a moment-by-moment awareness of your thoughts, feelings, bodily sensations, and the surrounding environment.” Simply put, the basis of mindfulness is being present, and being able to control your thoughts, feelings, and emotions in an appropriate way. It sounds like something that can improve work environments, for sure.
A great way to explain the principal is with the story of the two wolves, one negative and one positive. Which one do you feed? Find out in the video below.
After watching that video, you should have a better understating about what mindfulness is. But you may be wondering, “How is it a superpowe? Do I just need to be more conscious?” Not exactly. You see, it’s not just knowing about mindfulness that makes you obtain this superpower. You need to practice it and add it to your everyday life.
Now that you know, which wolf you should feed and how to become a superhero in your own right; start spreading the practice of mindfulness to everyone you know. Trust me they’ll thank you for it.
