Mindfulness focuses on the moment and acknowledges and accepts feelings, thoughts, and other factors, which is proven to optimize performance and reduce stress. A mindful approach promotes happiness and teamwork with physical and mental benefits. Although a mindful practice has deep spiritual roots, it now permeates corporate, athletic and academic settings to optimize performance. Companies such as Google have a mindfulness and emotional intelligence training program. Academic and medical institutions embrace mindfulness everywhere from MIT and Duke to the University of Illinois and the University of California at Los Angeles.
