With the growing trend of mindfulness practices, most people are familiar with the general benefits of meditation: stress management, decreased anxiety, relaxation and mental clarity among the most desired. But new research shows that there is a significant impact on productivity, problem solving, leadership and innovation that can be attributed to meditation in the workplace. Success in today's business world relies on leading with these valuable assets, which has drawn CEO's and senior executives of companies like IBM, Google, LinkedIn and Salesforce to the timeless practice.
Decision-making is a vital component of business success; particularly in fast-paced industries. Just five minutes a day of regular meditation can have an almost immediate impact on an individual's decision-making capabilities by allowing the mind to relax and release external stress and stimuli. The removal of distraction allows you to tap into intuition and emotional intelligence and make clear, confident personal and professional decisions. Improved leadership skills, another key to long-term professional growth and advancement, can be attributed to meditation and companies with mindful leadership tend to have happier employees and higher retention rates.
Meditation is also highly effective at helping professionals maintain positivity, build resilience, enhance creativity and heighten focus, all key to sharpening overall business acumen. Not only should every professional set aside five minutes a day to work on self improvement, but it's a must in order to maintain a competitive edge in the current business climate.
Meditation & Floatation Therapy
Newcomers often find it difficult to meditate initially because of the challenges physical stillness and external distractions can pose. During a Floatation Therapy session these challenges are removed because the body is effortlessly suspended, eliminating all weight, pain, pressure and physical exertion needed to find comfortable stillness. This makes for an optimal environment to facilitate a deep, meditative state.
The removal of external stimuli, including light and sound, allows the mind to shift focus to the internal thought process and physical awareness. To further enhance the experience, the skin temperature of the water blurs the boundaries of the body and allows physical awareness to be reduced to just the breath and heartbeat, which are the focus of many meditation techniques. If you're looking to incorporate a successful meditation practice or cultivate an existing effort, there is no better place to start than in the pod.

HERB OF THE MONTH: Cinnamon
You've probably had cinnamon sprinkled on your latte or your toast for the sweet, spicy taste, but the health benefits of this medicinal spice extend far beyond its culinary flavor profile.
Cinnamon’s biological activity is linked to its high concentration of polyphenols and antioxidants. Flavonoid compounds such as gossypin and hesperidin, as well as cinnamaldehyde, are involved in cinnamon's researched anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial activity. So, sprinkle away!
Stop by today or visit us online to purchase MIZU's artisanal "Detox" and "Immunity" blends which contain Cinnamon and other fine botanicals.
