Due to our giving such short notice, we still have a few spaces left for the free #mindfulness sittings suitable for beginners and those wanting to belong to a group on an informal basis. The sittings are in central London at 14.15 and 15.25 and last just under an hour. There is also news of the 5-Way Mindfulness-led Size & Weight Change Programme available there. 

For venue please email teachingandlearning@thenationalcolleges.org

“Can mindfulness improve your performance at work? Many businesses are embracing mindfulness and meditation training to help their employees. But what’s the actual benefit of mindfulness at work? And can it really help you?

Work is an area where many of us experience our greatest sense of personal development. We’re rewarded when we perform well and motivated to keep honing our game. For high-performing individuals, it’s natural to want to do the best job possible.

So can mindfulness help? According to a lot of people, yes it can. But maybe not in the way that you thought it could. Rather than placing you ahead of your co-workers, practicing mindfulness is the kind of training that can act like a force multiplier, benefiting not just you but your entire work culture. 

There’s a reason why companies like Adobe, Facebook, Blackrock, Google, and Hubspot have all started their own meditation groups. Last year I even got inquiries from the folks at Rolls Royce asking how to set up a meditation space at work. Here are 7 ways that mindfulness will help you improve your performance at work.”

I strongly disagree with Dr. David Brendel that mindfulness at work will increase "avoidance" and "groupthink." What's your take?

Some problems require more thinking, not less.

Even if we don't particularly like someone, we can still wish the person peace.  When we feel at peace, we're nicer to each other, and to ourselves.

Healthy living is a balancing act. We can control our outlook and how we feel and think. We can think healthy thoughts or we can think negative thoughts. We can let problems get the best of us, or we can stay relaxed.  Work when you are at work, and when work is done let it go and live your life. Things are going to happen, good and bad, and at times you will have no control over what happens, so it is best to just let what you can’t control happen, and let it go when it is done.

So true, if we can watch and be mindful of what is going on, it is easier to let go the negativity and be more happy and at peace.

“Do you struggle to get your meditation practice off the ground? If you’re like many people, meditation can be hard to start. And even when you do get started, it’s often difficult to find a groove or sweet spot. It can take time to reap the calming and clarifying benefits of your practice. Can you relate?

A lot of people give up because of this. Meditation just feels too foreign. In fact, there are studies which show that people would rather electrocute themselves than be alone with their own thoughts. Really? Yes, really.

And so it’s natural for you to conclude that because your mind is always buzzing, you’re no good at meditation. And then you lose steam. That’s too bad. Because it really doesn’t need to be like that, and I’ll explain why below. The truth is, if you understand why you feel like quitting, you can quickly reverse that momentum.” http://aboutmeditation.com/5-reasons-fail-at-meditation/ 
Why do people fail at meditation? There are some predictable reasons that are easy to avoid. Here are 5 reasons people give up on meditation way too soon.

"We can have skills training in mindfulness so that we are using our attention to perceive something in the present moment. This perception is not so latent by fears or projections into the future, or old habits, and then I can actually stir loving-kindness or compassion in skills training too, which can be sort of provocative, I found."
