Mindfulness has certainly been a hot topic over the last few years, but it's far from a passing fad. Thanks to its effectiveness, the concept has quickly ingrained itself into many workplace cultures, and it's not ending there.
Major names, from Google to Goldman Sachs, Spotify, and others have begun offering mindfulness training as a benefit to employees. Google even has its own course called "Search Inside Yourself," which focuses on the benefits of mindfulness and meditation both inside and outside of the workplace.
So, why are so many big companies latching onto the mindfulness concept? There are three primary reasons employers love inspiring mindfulness in their employees and why individuals are pursuing it on their own.
Mindfulness Leads to Better Creativity
Being in the moment and taking notice of everything happening around you can encourage better creativity, which is a skill that can benefit you in so many ways. Mindfulness helps to promote creativity by encouraging you to look around and question what's happening to reach a deeper understanding of the world you live in.
Mindfulness Improves Self-Confidence
Self-confidence is a trait anyone would find valuable, and mindfulness has been shown to help. Whether you are an employee, student, entrepreneur, or in any other position, everyone has to make decisions, and increased self-confidence has been shown to lead to more actionable and efficient decision making with better follow-through.
The forethought that mindfulness brings to the decision-making process has been shown to help reduce distraction and anxiety. Additionally, mindfulness will also help you consider different perspectives, leading to more educated and thoughtful decisions overall.
All of this is beneficial to employers, but it's also beneficial to people on an individual level, both inside and outside of the workplace, which is why mindfulness is at the center of many self-help discussions.
Mindfulness Heightens Productivity
When mental and physical stress is out of the way, humans are more productive. That's why mindfulness leads to impressive increases in productivity, and another reason why employers love to promote it. Aside from lowering stress levels, it can also promote greater empathy, which falls into the broad range of skills employers look for when seeking talent, especially when looking to fill leadership roles.
