This week on In Process,
our hosts Evelyn Ashley and John Monahon are joined by Angela and Dennis Buttimer, co-founders of the Atlanta Center for Mindfulness and Wellbeing to discuss developing a mindfulness practice into your daily life to help you enhance you energy, focus and creativity. The couple works with companies, school programs and even hospitals and treatment centers to implement mindfulness and wellbeing practices through yoga and meditation. Everyone benefits from mindfulness practice – it’s not just for yogis!
“In business, we tend to be competitive,” says Ashley as they talk about the misconceptions surrounding meditation and mindfulness. “The concepts of mindfulness and meditation [seem more focused on] ‘observe,’ ‘remove,’ and ‘be non-judgmental.’ On the surface, those ideas seem in conflict [with the competitive nature of business].”
But the opposite is actually true—incorporating mindfulness practice into the regular routine has proven to make employees more productive, energetic and able to focus when implemented in corporate America.
