Have you experienced trauma in your life? What about hurt? Have you ever been deeply afraid of something? Every person on this earth can probably answer yes to at least one of these questions.

More and more companies are understanding that the activities they partake in, what they encourage from their employees on a day to day basis, can dramatically impact the workplace, and their success.

Let’s come back to that meditation example, shall we? Meditation can give people’s brains a much-needed break. It can inspire them to look at things creatively. It can also reduce stress and enhance teamwork, which has led to many companies re-thinking their health benefits packages.

I first began using meditation for anxiety and stress a few years ago. Things were changing in my life, and I really wasn’t ready for it to be different. So I did the last thing I could think of to try and feel better, meditate.

I didn’t realize the full potential of the practice, yet. After using it consistently, it has not only been an effective treatment for the anxiety I felt, but has helped with some unmeasurable characteristics as well.
