The practice of mindfulness might seem out of place in the high-paced business world, but admins would benefit if they took a moment to live in the now.
Here’s why, according to clinical psychologist Cheryl Rezek:
- Respond, don’t react. Taking a moment to reflect will allow you to rid your mind of clutter and distractions while letting you consider a less critical, more flexible approach to whatever situation must be addressed.
- Bring focus to a situation. The people around you may become caught up in the chaos of an emergency, but mindfulness will help you bring a sense of focus to a problem that might otherwise be lost in the craziness.
- Step outside of yourself. Past experiences might cloud your judgment when you are deciding to respond to whatever situation may arise. If you can objectively acknowledge your internal assumptions and commentaries, you can think of a truly fair approach without the bias of your personal feelings.
