An area of reflection and self-discovery, updated regularly with new stories and discussions.
In this space we can connect with a range of talks and stories which help us navigate our way through life. As we pick Wisdoms which may help us deal with fatigue, learning from others or learning humility we realize others have the same challenges as ourselves and there are signposts to help us on the journey.

What You'll Learn
Mindfulness practices, such as breathing meditation, are associated with decreased gray-matter density in the amygdala, the region of the brain that initiates a response to stress. This reduces the inclination to interpret an uncertain environment as a threat and thus react defensively. In this way, mindfulness improves mental agility.
- Cognitive Ability
Mindfulness improves short-term memory and the ability to perform complex cognitive tasks. It also frees people to think outside the box, which helps them cut through complexity. In the context of workplace performance, proven results include a higher quality of strategic decision making and more effective collaboration.
- Focus & Clarity
As Nobel laureate Herbert A. Simon observed, “a wealth of information creates a poverty of attention.” This insight is more accurate today than ever before. Maintaining a strong focus in this time of digital information overload is essential. The regular practice of mindfulness routines can reduce mental wandering and distraction.
