Misconceptions of Mindfulness in the Workplace
July 10, 2017 • Awareness & the Mind, Learn
We should start by defining the word “mindfulness.” I define it as a state of being fully aware of what one is engaged in at any particular moment. So many people are talking about mindfulness but I think very few people can actually define it. And I say this because people often use this word in the wrong context.
The biggest misconception is that you can practice mindfulness. Mindfulness is a state of being. It is not something you practice, but rather something you are as a result of practicing concentration. To be good at concentration, we must first learn it and then practice it. Most people are told to concentrate, but are not taught how. One simple way to integrate the practice of concentration into your daily life is to practice doing one thing at a time. Give what and with whom you are engaged with your undivided attention.
The above is a part of an interview that was conducted with me by EO Octane Magazine.
