Mindfulness to Boost Creativity
A study by Harvard Business Review showed mindfulness helped engineers strengthen their ability to generate new ideas, leading to new ways of thinking and better solutions. John Kabat-Zinn has defined mindfulness meditation as “the awareness that arises from paying attention, on purpose, in the present moment and non-judgmentally". Having an open and curious attitude is referred to as “beginner’s mind” — the capacity to bring fresh eyes to a problem and engage in new perspectives for how to solve it. By remaining open to experiences, and not judging them, we are more likely to make connections and generate original ideas.
