Such is a Mindfulness exercise. At the beginning it relaxes you such that your brains go to sleep. It makes you understanding that your brain is tired and at that moment you just need to relax, drain your brain and give it a fresh start. The mistake we make is when we allow the person to return to work immediately after that exercise. This is an exercise that is most preffered for workers that needs to take some leave.
HRs are to take such employees through that exercise and allow them to go on a vacation as part of their annual leave to complete the process. That is when the real effect of it would be realised. Complementing mindfulness training with Aerobics is perfect because a weak body makes the brain tired too.
So both can Complement each other to work out the brain and the body to fully function efficiently. When people first begin to meditate, feeling sleepy is a major problem. So, in this study, with such a brief time on meditation, the chances are these people would have felt sleepy and lazy and that explains very well the results they found!!!
Well people spend hours and hours a day to master something or get results but you are expecting meditation to show results in 10 min of meditation session LOL. You people are so funny.. About this post from Insead that meditation makes people satisfied and content and that makes them lack ambition, here is why this is not true.
That is also a gift, a true wealth. A person who is content exuberates a certain sense of joy from deep within; he exudes certain positive vibrations which everyone else would love to have. A restless guy cannot be an inventor. You may say that this is contrary, since some scientists were very restless to make discoveries.
Like Archimedes was very restless. Well, when did Archimedes find the Buoyancy principle? He did not find it when he was restless. He found it when he was relaxing in a tub of water. Newton struggled all his life. But when he felt overwhelmed with desperation, when his brain got so tired of thinking and calculating, he sat down to rest below a tree.
When he took a moment of rest, the apple fell before him and he found Gravity. When you look at every invention on this planet with a keen sense of observation, you will find that it has come when people have gotten over the restlessness, desperation and dejection.
It has happened when they arrived at a point of breakdown, and relaxed. In that moment of total relaxation and contentment, creativity came to them. But we understand it the other way around.
We think that contentment is in opposition with creativity. We think that we can be creative only when we are restless and agitated.
If agitation and restlessness were to be the cause of creativity, then countries like Afghanistan should be the most creative part of the world. There has been restlessness and discontent in Afghanistan for the past 40 years. If this were true, then Lebanon too should have been very creative.
Instead we see that the city of Beirut faces problems all the time.
There is so much tension and strife in Kashmir. Where do we see creativity in the midst of such restlessness and discontent? See, contentment is not lethargy.
Do not confuse contentment with lethargy. Contentment is creativity. Your Privacy.
