Stress is one of the biggest problems in today’s life of many people.

stressed, s/he is also less engaged, produces less, and is often absent from work. Only in the USA, the consequences of stress-related illnesses cost businesses the incredible sum of $190 billion a year.
Scientist agree in recognizing the benefits of meditation, relaxation, and mindfulness practices in personal and professional environments.
Meditation, in particular, has been proved as having long lasting effects on its practitioners when dealing with stress levels.
So, science suggests that adopting a life style change that brings to the adoption of meditation and relaxation practices can contribute to an healthier, happier life.
Investing in one’s wellness, both mental and physical, and in one’s business environment wellness, is a wise choice, that is no longer acceptable to delay. Meditation, relaxation, and mindfulness can be easily adopted by anyone, in every place, at any time, and those who decide to invest on it, quickly discover the wide range of associated benefits in their personal and professional life.
These benefits go from a better mental health, increased levels of morale, better communication and participation in groups, to a better goal setting, more concentration, clearer planning and execution. All this is possible thanks to the positive effects meditation has on emotions, brain’s physiology, and body stress reaction.
Our mind and our body are bound, and as negative patterns impact on both, thus positive behaviours create a positive spiral of increased resiliency and wellness. Of course everyone is aware that, even if we try, we cannot separate our personal stress reaction from a “business-related” one. When we are stressed, the effects ripple both on our personal and professional lives.
Through meditation, we can build a healthier mind, understanding how our body reacts to stressors, and nurturing a conscious awareness of how each stressor could be controlled so that its impact on us is limited or eliminated.
