Minding your Mindfulness

by Donna Steinhorn on September 15, 2011

Angela Spaxman, a Career and Executive Coach based in Hong Kong (and long time friend) talks about Mindfulness, and in particular about Mindfulness in the corporate world as the next big trend.  In her blog about the top benefits of mindfulness, she lists better listening ability, better moods, and in particular more control of your thinking as you are mindful of the negative thoughts that arise and take control of those thoughts by noticing them and replacing them with positive ones.

This is a perfect example of one way to control your memetic environment!

Hi Donna,

Thanks for pinging! Do you see mindfulness as an upcoming trend in the corporate world? I think it’s inevitable as an antidote to the information overload we face. We’ve got to learn to reclaim our own minds, as you point out in your No to News post.

Hi Angela, Yes I do see it as an upcoming trend. The Executives I work with are all working longer hours, often with fewer resources. As both information overload, time management, and resource dilution continue, burnout is almost an inevitability if we don’t start focusing on ourselves. Mindfulness is a great way to slow down and focus.
