A New York Times reporter reveals what business leaders around the country are already discovering: Meditation may be the key to fostering a happier, more productive workplace.

For the past few years, mindfulness has begun to transform the American workplace. Many of our largest companies, such as General Mills, Ford, Target, and Google, have built extensive programs to foster mindful practices among their workers. Mindful Work is the first book to explain how all sorts of businesses and any kind of worker can benefit from meditation, yoga, and other mindful techniques. As a business reporter for the New York Times who has also practiced meditation for two decades, David Gelles is uniquely qualified to chart the growing nexus between these two realms. As he proves, mindfulness lowers stress, increases mental focus, and alleviates depression among workers. He also offers real-world examples of how mindfulness has benefited companies that have adopted it — from the millions of dollars Aetna has saved in health-care costs to the ways Patagonia has combined leadership in its market with a pervasively mindful outlook.

Gelles’s revelatory book picks up where bestsellers like Thrive and 10% Happier leave off, by detailing how mindfulness works in and for the companies that adopt it, revealing the profound impact mindfulness can have on the world of work. Mindful Work goes beyond other books on the subject by providing evidence for the practical benefits of mindfulness and showing readers how to become more mindful themselves.

Really great book to provide an overview of how meditation practices are being used in the workplace and providing some of the scientific research on the benefits of meditation. It lagged somewhat about halfway, and crammed many different programs near the end. However, the book finished strongly and was quite informative. I quite enjoyed it.

This is good book that helps you understand ways to control stress. It points out ways you can better yourself, and manage the most important things in your life. Multitasking bad. I liked the explanation as to why is can be.

I learned a lot about mindfulness through this book. The resources that David shares throughout and in the appendix are invaluable. Lots to think about. As he says, “To start, just follow your breath.”

Mindfulness can be practiced by anyone. Even in small amounts, it has a positive impact on your emotional and physical well-being, which is why more and more companies are choosing to implement mindful practices such as meditation classes into their culture.
