In today's world, a busy and rigorous schedule is practically inevitable. But despite the constant stress and pressure of day-to-day life, there is a simple solution that can help to avoid the negative physical and mental effects of a heavy workload—the solution is mindfulness, the ability to be present and non-judgmentally observe a situation. Brigham Blake found himself suffering both mentally and physically as he faced a depleting routine each day, as many American adults do. But by practicing mindfulness exercises, he started successfully managing his stressful circumstances. He is now thriving. Scientific research supports that mindfulness practice can help many people develop a healthy work-life balance and a positive outlook on life. Applying just a few simple strategies can make a significant difference and help today's adults avoid the negative effects of the "burnout crisis."
