Kylie Bell talks about the effect of stress on our work practices with Eve Ash.

Daniel Goleman’s “Retrain your Stressed Out Brain” discusses the amygdala’s fight and flight response. After eight weeks practicing mindfulness, the amygdala is less reactive. The telomeres on our chromosomes lengthen, and we cease aging as rapidly. Aside from these physical benefits, organizations have found that practicing mindfulness causes productivity spikes in about 83% of workers. We need mindfulness at work, Kylie Bell says, because not only are we less stressed and less prone to conflict, we become more productive and effective.
