Mindful awareness is about learning to pay attention, in the present moment, and without judgment. This reduces our tendency to work on autopilot, allowing us to choose how we respond & react.
Mindfulness training is a bit like using a muscle – the more you use it, the stronger it gets.
“In more than 30 years of research, we’ve found that increasing mindfulness increases charisma and productivity, decreases burnout and accidents, and increases creativity, memory, attention, positive affect, health, and even longevity. When mindful, we can take advantages of opportunities and avert the dangers that don’t yet exist. This is true for the leader and the led.” Ellen Langer, Professor of Psychology at Harvard University
Mindfulness is at the very core of our engagement with life, it is the capacity to be aware of what is going on. The practice of mindfulness helps us to stop running and to realize that happiness and well being are available to us in the very moments of our lives that we find impossible, exhausting or overwhelming.

Science of Mindfulness
Neuroscience is a fairly new branch of science known as “neuroplasticity,” and it covers the growing body of scientific literature on the effects of training attention and emotion. The notion that we can improve our mental and emotional capacity is validated in Neuroscience research that is finding that what we think, do, and pay attention to changes the structure and function of our brains.
Psychology – Ellen Langer is a Professor of Psychology at the Harvard University. For nearly four decades, Langer’s research on mindfulness has influenced thinking across a range of fields, from behavioral economics to positive psychology. It demonstrates that by paying attention to what’s going on around us, instead of operating on autopilot, we can reduce stress, unlock creativity, and boost performance. “Mindfulness is the essence of engagement,” Langer says. “And it’s energy-begetting, not energy-consuming. She powerfully demonstrates the debilitating effect of mindlessness on our lives.
