According to a study on high stress work environments, workers who learned meditation not only felt less stress while doing the same work tasks, they also performed better. Their memory improved. They were less distracted. They stayed on task longer. Meditation benefits not only how you feel, but also how well you perform.
The paradox is that nowadays everyone feels so busy, so stressed, so overwhelmed, that most people don’t feel like they have the luxury to stop and do nothing. But what if the consequence of working nonstop is actually getting less done? You may think you’re getting more done because you’re constantly busy doing something, but in actuality your brain is not functioning at its best.
