This Simple Practice Could Help Reduce Stress, Increase Focus And Make You More Kind

New York Times reporter David Gelles, who authored an upcoming book called Mindful Work: How Meditation Is Changing Business from the Inside Out, talked with HuffPost Live at Davos Friday about mindfulness practices,

Gelles said practices like meditation and yoga are able to reduce stress, increase focus and even make people more kind and compassionate.

"Our minds are totally inclined to race ahead and dwell in the past, but a lot of people would find that if we actually slow down and be in the present moment, a lot of good things will happen," Gelles said.

Gelles said everyone should be able to make time for mindfulness practices.

"I think we all have time. If we all have time to check our smart phones and browse the web, we likely all have time for more virtuous activities," Gelles said.
