How to Embrace Mindfulness at Work

How to Embrace Mindfulness at Work

Is it possible to synchronise the world of work – all cut-throat competition, profit margins, productivity and cold, hard cash – and the higher principles of mindfulness? You might imagine that combining the two might make for an almighty clash. In fact, mindfulness is one of the hottest ideas in business right now. At the recent World Economic Forum a panel featuring Jon Kabat-Zinn (who virtually invented the modern idea of mindfulness), Arianna Huffington of the Huffington Post  and a board member of Goldman Sachs was a sell-out.

Understanding Microbiota and Weight Management

The title of Kathie Swift's book 'The Swift Diet' could be misleading. It is not a book about miracle weight loss but focuses on the medicinal power of food to heal our bowel problems, allergies and depression. Weight gain is just one of the side effects to the damage we have done to our immune system by digesting antibiotics and processed foods. The key to fixing this, says Swift, is to restore and boost the bacteria that lives inside our bodies, mostly in the colon or large intestine. Weight gain, Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), gluten...
