<br> The obvious question needs to be"why?" What I have discovered is stunning. Stress reportedly costs the U.S. economy around 300 billion annually due to injuries, absenteeism, employee turnover, diminished productivity, direct medical, legal, and insurance costs and workers' compensation awards as well as tort and FELA judgments. That is not a minor number.In addition, a Gallup Poll revealed that four out of five workers in this country feel stressed at work and almost half say they need help in learning how to deal with anxiety.
A quarter of employees have felt like screaming or crying because of anxiety and roughly ten percent are worried about an individual at work which they feel could become violent. Every one these amounts should ring loud warning bells.While meditation may not fully eradicate anxiety, but studies show encouraging signs that affirm what meditation professionals have known for ages. In one of the most comprehensive studies this far, researchers from Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore sifted through nearly 19,000 meditation research and discovered 47 trials that met their criteria for well-designed studies.
Their findings, published in JAMA Internal Medicine, suggest that meditation can help ease psychological pressures like anxiety, depression, and pain.The PositivesRecent research have also proven that meditation may increase focus and creativity, which might be why the aforementioned companies--that all rely upon a measure of imagination and development--are encouraging their workers to meditate.With all of the available data, another question needs to be increased. "Why not all businesses and companies motivate their employees to meditate?" The solution may not be as simple as one might imagine.
"Businesses Do not Care"The simplest response is that corporations don't care. That is accurate. However, <a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zh7Y1UeeiFA">https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zh7Y1UeeiFA</a> corporations can be taught how to care. They employ caring individuals, a lot of whom would love to incorporate stress reduction policies--many already have. But as everyone knows, in order for a corporate wide policy to alter you also have to persuade the chief financial officer. Money talks, right? Luckily CFO's could be persuaded with a very simple web search (meditation study, cost of anxiety ) coupled with a fundamental mathematical formula which takes into consideration some of the matters talked about in this article.I would not be shocked if greater corporations followed in the footsteps of these previously mentioned and began encouraging their workers to meditate--they might even decide to offer some training.A quote comes to mind I heard from Brian Tracy:"The question is not if you train your employees and they depart --the question is, what if you don't train them and they stay?"

That is the perfect way to describe Baby Steps to Meditation.<br><br>What Meditation Can Not Do For You at the sixties, seventies, and eighties, some classes and associations hyped meditation by telling folks that they could"be in 2 places at precisely the exact same time" and"learn how to fly".
