Mindfulness expert Andy Puddicombe describes the transformative power of refreshing your mind for 10 minutes a day.
No need for incense or sitting in uncomfortable positions — simply be mindful and experience the present moment.
“We can’t change everything that happens to us in life, but we can change the way we experience it.
“Meditation is not about stopping thoughts, getting rid of emotions, controlling the mind…
“Meditation is about stepping back, seeing the thought clearly, witnessing thoughts and emotions… without judgment, but with a relaxed, focused mind.”
In business this can help us remain grounded, ensuring we make better sense of the situation, and helping us to spot opportunities.
In The Churning, meditation and mindfulness form part of Chapter 1 of inner leadership.
