Meditation in business world sounds so off-place? How does it work?
Major corporations are beginning to offer meditation sessions to their employees because it increases productivity and competence and keep the negative emotions at work in check. Recent research has shown that meditation is capable of initiating positive changes not only at physiological level such as lowering blood pressure and immunizing against cardio-vascular problem, it helps to eliminate negative and destructive emotions such as anger, jealousy, self-esteem and other work-related issues which drives operating cost of the business up.

This can increase competence, productivity and decision-making ability in business sector.

I'm becoming more well versed in the habit of stopping, building time between a stress and my response. And understanding and apllying the techniques of self-awareness instead of automatic reaction to a stress. Thank you!! Really appreciated this opportunity-I found it invaluable.
When something/comment/event/memory triggers negative emotion, being mindful helps in looking inside and taking a pause instead of being reactive. I noticed that that happening more frequently in both work and personal life.
