In our busy and rushed lives, we keep doing multiple tasks all the time. Our attention scatters across these and we become stressed and exhausted. Stress affects us in both emotional and physical ways. It can cause anxiety and worry, panic attacks, restlessness or even depression. We tend to overeat or under-eat, get irritable, resort to drugs or withdraw socially. To overcome these difficulties, Mindfulness is one of the most profound ways through which we can cultivate well-being.
Mindfulness provides you the ability to cope with difficult emotions such as worry, anger, anxiety, stress, and fear. It is taking a specific intended action based on clarity and awareness to everything that you do. Paying close attention to doing tasks helps us to snap out of rumination, compulsive actions and hence make conscious choices.
The World happiness report 2016 talks about four pillars of happiness: resilience, background stream of positive emotions (practicing basic goodness), generosity and attention in the present moment. Mindfulness helps to develop all four pillars.
Our training program provides applicable and practical techniques for enhancing well-being. Having delivered mindfulness programs to a wide range of audiences has enabled us to impart the knowledge of mindfulness in simple and lucid ways and help our participants to see the benefit in their personal and professional life. Our facilitators have a personal mindfulness practice for more than 5 years and hence can bring in practical insights and guide people about how mindfulness works in day-to-day life.
Seventy-One Percent of Employers Say They Value Emotional Intelligence over IQ, According to CareerBuilder Survey. High emotional intelligence is increasingly being recognized as important in organizations because of the growing complexity and the variety of stakeholders that must be communicated with effectively. This requires for leaders to respond rather than react to events. This encourages a range of emotional skills such as focus, adaptability, emotional regulation and perspective-taking; all important for successful leadership. findings suggest that practising mindfulness for just ten minutes or more a day can significantly improve key leadership skills and build emotional intelligence.
The training was a quantum leap in motivation for all. Now coming to self I was not very vocal during the training. The reason was “dropping the stories” as most of the stories was with me and the stories are like self-imposed taboos about which I was thinking and even now thinking. I always have biased and illogical confidence in my brain power and not on the body. Now I have come across the issues of the self, the body, and its synchronization. Small changes I am working out and hoping for a changed self.
It was a wonderful experience. The 4 days were, really, a learning curve. It was really sort of renewal ,as taught in the training, of Physical, Social, Mental and Emotional. In the last 17 years, of my experience , I’ve attended around 8 training programmes . After the training, when someone asks, I would explain it theoretically or rather unable to share. The Module of this Program has been conceptualised in an exemplary way. The execution was too good. Mr.Nitten was exceptional.
Earlier paragraph, I had said,” I was unable to share the earlier training programmes experiences with my friends, colleague or relatives”. I am so happy that I have started sharing this little knowledge, gained ,with my Friends and Family. I had met 2 of my Friends, through my IIM class,on Friday . I was sharing this experience of, 6 needs, Daily renewals , Scramble pattern and Anchoring with them. They were astounded and said, ”It sounds good and realistic”. Yesterday, it was with my wife and neighbours in my Flat. They were all surprised to see a change in my body language and conversation.
Moreover, during the Training we did this exercise of dropping the stories. I had done this with my sister. I reached home yesterday night. I was sharing the happenings of training program with my wife. During the course she said, ”Your sister called me daily in the last 4 days. This has really worked for me. Thank you Nitten. You know what- Today, I got up and then my son woke up. Along with him I shouted,” This is going to be a great day”.
This made me realise how Contribution and Growth can Change not only other’s lives ,but, ours as well. It also made me realise the fact, that,” Language represents Internal Experience”, one of the NLP Pre-suppositions is true.
I believe in the statement of ADI SANKARA—“What we know is 1/6th the size of our palm”. I also understand, with the smattering knowledge one has, we can do wonders if we know how to leverage it. This program has emphasized it.
