Team meetings

"Wherever you go, there you are."

Jon Kabat-Zinn

Mindfulness is the psychological process of purposely bringing one's attention to experiences occurring in the present moment, without judgment. People develop mindfulness through the practice of meditation and exercises such as centering or grounding, deep breathing, body scans, and other types of training that help draw the attention to the present moment. This job aid offers tips and simple exercises for developing a mindfulness practice and incorporating this practice into team meetings.
