Mindfulness programs have been put into place at many big corporations, including Apple, Google, Procter & Gamble, General Mills, and even health related companies, such as Aetna. Why? Because mindfulness works. It helps people feel less stressed and makes them more productive. If you implement mindfulness in these simple ways, you can not only reduce your stress, but also improve memory, lower blood pressure, and lessen depression and anxiety. You also can be less reactive in stressful situations at home, work, or anywhere your body takes you.
