At Micro-Documentaries we have started a daily morning meditation practice before we begin our work. The benefits of establishing this habit are extensive and now well documented and it seemed that if one of our company objectives was to enrich our employee’s lives while they worked with us, this was a natural step to take.
Adopting a new habit can be daunting and overcoming obstacles that get in the way of a new patterns can be challenging. But so far reports back have been positive, with people reporting more sane beginnings to the day, greater ability to be appreciative of the present and a greater sense of clarity and calm.
We hope you notice!
