Mindfulness essentially means “paying attention” – being consciously present in the here and now. Mindfulness meditation deliberately creates mental space between your actual thoughts and your individual response to those thoughts. This is important for stress relief but also allows for greater control of one’s emotions and an increased ability to focus. But there are more reasons why mindfulness is becoming essential to your credit union business:
- Studies show that meditation can increase productivity by almost an hour per week.
