What are common core values of leaders who practice mindfulness in both their personal and professional lives?
Mindfulness-based techniques include a core practice of meditation.
"Meditation is medicine for the mind and a core practice required for mindful leadership."
1. A mindful leader cultivates compassion, focus, and creativity while being of service to others.
2.. A mindful leader creates present-centered awareness through a personal mindfulness-based practice such as meditation.
3. Meditation is the action of making an appointment with yourself. During meditation we distant ourselves from the distractions of the outside world, and shift our focus inwards.
4. Start your meditation practice by turning off digital devices and sitting comfortably in a quiet place. Close your eyes and focus on your breathing. Inhale to the count of three, and then exhale to the count of four. If you find your mind wandering, focus back on your breath.
5. A regular meditation practice has been scientifically proven to reduce stress levels, build emotional resilience, foster creative thinking, and improve memory.
