Mindful : June 2018
Let’s face it: Work is broken. Despite numer- ous attempts to rejigger and modernize and open up the workplace, in the opinion of Leah Weiss—who teaches “Leading with Mindful- ness and Compassion” at the Stanford Graduate School of Business—most people work in a toxic environment. She’s not talking about sick building syn- drome, though plenty of people still work in buildings cut off from the natural world with bad air, bad lighting, and bad building materi- als. She’s talking about working hours that stretch out of all recognition, the added ability to field communications at any place or time, and few if any doses of serious downtime to recharge. Weiss cites a study that shows that, in 2015, less than half of workers who received paid vacation days used all or most of them and that 44% of respondents said their job “nega- tively affected their overall health,” while 40% said it negatively affected family life, weight, and sleep. Chief among our problems is a mindset that creates a false dichotomy between “work” and “life,” causing us to expect life to make up for the damage done at work, when in fact what we need to do, individually and collectively, is learn how to live better at work and every- place else. We need to transform the workplace and reclaim our lives by learning to pay more consistent attention to how we feel. As the tried and true mindfulness question goes: What is happening right now? If we keep up this kind of investigation, Weiss contends, change will hap- pen. And leaders need to step up and take the initiative to create workplaces that value how people really feel. HOW WE WORK Live Your Purpose, Reclaim Your Sanity, and Embrace the Daily Grind Leah Weiss • Harper Wave With mindfulness being taught in an increasing number of schools, many stu- dents are learning how mind- ful practices can help them deal with busy school days, high expectations, relation- ships, and the omnipresence of social media. Biegel, a psy- chotherapist and the creator of Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction for Teens, knows the aspects of mindfulness most useful for young people, and this book lays these out clearly. Without talking down to anyone, Biegel identifies simple actions that young people can take for self-care, easing anxiety, and cultivat- ing more ease. This book will help in the vital work of empowering teens to improve their own wellness. BE MINDFUL & STRESS LESS 50 Ways to Deal with Your (Crazy) Life Gina M. Biegel • Shambhala Publications It’s long been known that the modern way of death is deeply flawed. The funeral- home-run operations—the retail setting, the ex tremely costly coffins, embalm- ing practices, burials, and even cremations (which require ex treme levels of energy)—“not only fail to provide a satisfying ritual for mourning,” says Elizabeth Fournier, but they also leave behind a “lasting financial and ecological burden.” The seventh generation of mor ti- cians in her family, Fournier is a convert to green burials. She offers here everything you need to know about this new and growing set of practices.
