One of the key components of stress is being overrun by thoughts, thoughts of the past or of the future, rather than paying attention to your immediate experience. In increasing body of research has documented how mindfulness builds the capacity to disengage from unhelpful thoughts and place attention where you choose.
This can not only improve you own and your team’s performance, it can reduce stress as well.
