En los últimos años estamos notando una enorme interés y demanda de las empresas por el mindfulness. Muchos de nuestros clientes nos piden programas formativos de mindfulness en diferentes formatos, well for the Steering Committee, or for all Managers, and sometimes even for all employees. Some say it's a fad or a trend that will. I am convinced that it is not a fad, but here to stay, and expand increasingly in the business world.
La metáfora del vaso de agua con sedimentos
En los cursos de mindfulness
siempre hablo de la metáfora del vaso de agua con sedimentos
. If we imagine a glass of water with sediment and agitate strongly, How's the water? Evidently, cloudy. For so it is usually our mind: cloudy, confused, stressed. In a world full of stimuli, sobreinformación, constant changes, continuing uncertainty, our mind is lost.
However, What happens to the glass of water with sediment when deposited on a table and leave it still for 10 minutes? As the sediments fall to the bottom by gravity, And the water, then, clarifies, It is clean. well, that's what happens with our mind when we practice mindfulness for a time on a regular basis: que va aclarándose, despejándose, seeing what was in front of her but could not see because of the sediment.
In our life or work often we are blocked and do not see solutions to challenges, problems or difficulties. And we say things like “It is impossible to solve”, “I am not able to cope with this…” the “I have no time…” They are phrases confused mind, blocked up. But it is not true that it is impossible, or not be able, or not have time. The problem is that our mind does not see clearly. However, when we practice mindfulness and mind becomes clearer, suddenly we see the solutions that seemed impossible before. And we say, surprised: “'But if the answer was right under my nose and did not see!!”
Cuando integramos la meditación mindfulness
en nuestro día a día, our mind becomes clear, and starts running at peak performance, He begins to be more serene and balanced, and shows its innate creativity to solve problems or challenges. This has a huge impact on our self-esteem, our emotional balance and our performance. We take better decisions, we focus on what's important, and we feel more motivated and better able to achieve our goals.
It is no coincidence that the sediments fall to the bottom of the glass and the water clears when we leave the glass still several minutes. Because that is what needs our mind to function at peak performance: stop, sit still. We do not know how much we need a day of silence and stillness! Our life would be very different, and our professional performance also.
