Mindfulness is a state of active, open attention on the present. When you're mindful, you observe your thoughts and feelings from a distance, without judging them good or bad. Instead of letting your life pass you by, mindfulness means living in the moment and awakening to experience.

The benefits of mindfulness include lowered anxiety and stress, heightened attention, and the ability to focus on happiness and develop positive relationships with others.

In the workplace, mindfulness can develop trust amongst employees, result in greater efficiency, and enhance productivity.

Mindfulness is a state of being; it fluctuates according to the circumstances and we all require training and conditioning to develop mindfulness in every environment.

A good program that develops such a state of mind should have some of the following elements:

•       Self-exploration – help trainees look inwards and reflect on their own actions without being subjected to criticism and negativity

•       Identify your own emotions.

•       Skills to regulate own emotions.

•       Identify and exploration the emotions of others.

•       Skills to manage emotions of peers, superiors and team members.

•       Develop and inculcate daily habit to encourage mindfulness

•       Development of a plan or checklist for improvement

•       Open dialogue between members

•       Role-playing

•       Develop healthy living habits

•       Identifying role models and find mentors who will point out your flaws
