Kylie Bell talks about the effect of stress on our work practices with Eve Ash. The research shows that when people engage in mindful activities, they are more resilient, calmer and less inclined towards conflict. Daniel Goleman's "Retrain your Stressed Out Brain" discusses the amygdala's fight and flight response. After eight weeks practicing mindfulness, the amygdala is less reactive. The telomeres on our chromosomes lengthen, and we cease aging as rapidly. Aside from these physical benefits, organizations have found that practicing mindfulness causes productivity spikes in about 83% of workers.
When we engage in mindfulness, we are:
- Less stressed
- More resilient
- Less likely to enter conflict because of feeling calmer
- Generating physical results (telomeres in chromosomes lengthen)
- More productive
- More effective in decision-making
