Description

Mindfulness can boost workplace happiness, which has an immediate effect on the bottom line. According to new research from RSM, ten minutes of mindfulness alone can boost happiness and creativity. Researchers Dirk Deichmann, Evgenia Dolgova and alumna Emma Schootstra found that employees who participated in guided mindfulness meditation for just ten minutes, generated a 22 per cent wider range of ideas, compared to those who took part in fake meditation, or just “relaxed”.
