The Take-Off

As a regular business traveller, I’m forever dealing with the draining effects of jetlag, changes in diet, uncomfortable flights and a plethora of other stresses to my body and mind. Desperate to find a solution, in 2011, I signed up for the Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) course, in the hope it might help me to make small improvements to my travel routines and rigours. I was staggered by the results!

The Journey

Seven years later, meditation and mindfulness are an integral part of my life and I have emphatically embraced the benefits it has brought to my business abroad. I’m both an associate of London Meditation and a certified Awareness Coach. At the moment, I am well on my way to becoming an MBSR facilitator and a Mindfulness Teacher

MINDFULNESS AT WORK The Power of the Mind

“Mindfulness is a form of mental activity that trains the mind to become aware of awareness itself and to pay attention to one’s own intention.”

What is Mindfulness ?

Mindfulness is the simple yet powerful practice of training our attention.

It’s simple because it’s just about paying attention to what’s happening here and now. Notice your own sensations, thought and emotions.

Just notice them – don’t judge them.

It’s so powerful because it breaks the habit of getting lost in thoughts and worries about both the past and the future, which most commonly lead us into stressful thinking.

Mindfulness is increasingly recognised as an effective cure for healing stress and provides a higher sense of wellness and relaxation.

What the Experts Say ?

Over the past 30 years, there has been a wealth of research concluding mindfulness is fundamentally associated with improvement in key areas such as wellbeing, relationships and performance.

Experts at Harvard University have found that people who practice mindfulness meditation show changes in brain regions which control learning and memory processes, the ability to regulate emotions and to respond to different situations by taking different perspectives.

A Journey for the Mind

In the travel industry, we’re starting to see an increased interest in mindfulness and the benefits it can offer to businesses, employees and customers.

Many airlines, including Virgin Atlantic, British Airways, Delta and Cathay Pacific have started promoting meditation and mindfulness by introducing an audio channel on long-haul flights devoted to meditation practices.

How Can Meditation Improve Your Travel Experiences ?
  • You’ll become more aware of your own thoughts as you step back and choose to respond in different ways. This can bring about huge benefits, especially when dealing with the stresses of flight delays, angry customers, lost suitcases, etc.
  • Your body relaxes and the tension disappears, replaced by a wave of clam.
  • You’ll achieve sharper focus and raised energy levels as you train your mind to stay firmly in the present moment. The sharper your focus and energy, the more resilient and productive you’ll be at work.
  • Your newly found inner calm will increase patience and compassion towards others. When you achieve inner tranquillity, it becomes so much easier to develop truthful communication with others, making it easier to work with colleagues and customers.
