A METHOD OF FINDING PEACE IN CHAOS; MINDFULNESS
MBSR (Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction), is a program used to cope with stress and improve mental health.
MBSR was developed by Prof. Jon Kabat-Zinn at the Massachusetts Medical School in the United States.
This program aims to enhance conscious awareness as a means of dealing with the intense stress of the modern world.
MBSR focuses on improving mental well-being and reducing the negative effects of stress.
MBSR is widely practiced around the world. It is offered in medical centers, clinics, health centers, schools and counseling facilities.
Numerous studies have demonstrated the effectiveness of MBSR in addressing issues such as stress, anxiety, depression, and concentration problems.
By cultivating mindful awareness, people can better manage daily stress, increase their emotional well-being, and improve their overall quality of life.
BENEFITS OF MINDFULNESS
MINDFULNESS IS ON THE COVER OF TIME, THE WORLD'S BEST-SELLING MAGAZINE. BUT WHY?
The reason is quiet interesting...
Because Mindfulness offers a very powerful solution to stress, anxiety, depression and focusing problems, which are the biggest problems of modern people.
Especially in the business world where we have to deal with multiple tasks at the same time, it is very difficult to keep our attention on a subject,
All these difficulties not only affect our performance at work, but also cause serious problems in our family and social life, especially in our health, and cause a serious decrease in our quality of life.
Mindfulness offers a very powerful method for us to take control of our mind, calm it and manage factors such as stress and anxiety by getting to the root of all these problems.
WHO NEEDS MINDFULNESS? DO ANY OF THE FOLLOWING SITUATIONS SOUND FAMILIAR TO YOU?
Mindfulness enables us to become aware of these unconscious and automatic behavioural patterns and enables us to lead a life in which we know ourselves better, are more aware, happier and can fight stress more effectively.
DOES MINDFULNESS REALLY WORK?
More than 3000 scientific studies on mindfulness have been conducted in the last 40 years, including research from universities such as Harvard, Cambridge, Yale and Massachusetts. Many corporate organizations that care about the mental and spiritual health of their employees, especially Google, provide mindfulness trainings to their employees.
GOOGLE EMPLOYEES WAIT 6 MONTHS TO ATTEND MINDFULNESS TRAININGS. BUT WHY?
Thousands of Google employees take Mindfulness training every year. This training is becoming more and more widespread and is based on developing a "mindful awareness" of our surroundings. According to Google's spokesperson, the success of Mindfulness is due to its fusion of a 2500-year-old tradition with neuroscience.
There is a high demand for trainings. Participants face a waiting list of up to 6 months to join the mindfulness trainings given at Google under the name "Search Inside of Yourself". Participants state that Mindfulness has changed their lives.
The trainings have been offered at Google since 2007. It is the idea of Chade Meng-Tan, one of Google's successful engineers, to offer this training within the company. Her colleagues say that thanks to Chade, Mindfulness has had a positive impact on the corporate culture.

Chade Meng-Tan is known as the person who has hosted many celebrities at Google, including US presidents such as Clinton, Carter and Obama.
Chade says his aim is "to help people find the key to happiness."
Chade says the following about the Mindfulness programme;
"We can think of mindfulness as an exercise for participants to develop their emotional intelligence.
At the same time, this programme enables participants to build better relationships with themselves and with other people. Participants recognise that having a high emotional intelligence is important for their careers.
And all companies know that they can make a lot of money by having employees with high emotional intelligence."

COMMENTS OF PARTICIPANTS WHO ATTENDED OUR MINDFULNESS TRAININGS
"As modern age people, we study personal development like crazy, but how much of these information can we apply to our lives? Mindfulness makes us realise our thoughts, emotions and body. When the training is over, you can enjoy being a new person :)

I am Belgin, 51 years old, a secondary school teacher in Belgium, married, mother of 3 children.
I have experienced a number of hardships in my life.
I was very stressed, always tired, had migraines, full of anxiety, muscle pains for the last 7-8 years.
The doctor diagnosed fibromyalgia.
For the last year, I tried different therapies, then I joined the Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction Programme.
I applied what I learnt in the Mindfulness training in my life.
I learnt that all my pains were caused by stress. When the stress almost disappeared, my pains disappeared like a miracle.
Leaving the past, not worrying about the future, realising, living in the moment, being in the moment, relaxes my mind so much...
I am now happy, peaceful, serene and thankful.
"The mindfulness training, which I started without much expectation in the hustle and bustle of life, has brought about a real change in me with its simple but effective exercises.
With Mr Emre's reassuring, calm, understanding, kind and wise presence, the weekly meetings have been an exciting process in which I have been able to discover new things and feel more and more how to live in the moment.
Initially, I attended your training to reduce my stress. but in one part of the training you said to face yourself, but then I realised that facing is actually healing.
This changed a lot in my life.
It turned out that it was my old wounds that I did not face that stressed me out.
As I confronted each of my wounds, I understood myself more and more and I stopped being angry with myself.
I realised that life is actually very simple but we make it difficult, at least I did.
I wanted to share this with you.
This training changed a lot in my life 📷
We can call it the butterfly effect🦋
Thank you very, very much again.

HOW DOES TIME MAGAZINE DEFINE MINDFULNESS?
Mindfulness reminds us how hard it has become to think about just one thing at a time. Technology has made it easier than ever to fracture attention into smaller and smaller bits. We answer a colleague’s questions from the stands at a child’s soccer game; we pay the bills while watching TV; we order groceries while stuck in traffic. In a time when no one seems to have enough time, our devices allow us to be many places at once–but at the cost of being unable to fully inhabit the place where we actually want to be.
Mindfulness says we can do better. At one level, the techniques associated with the philosophy are intended to help practitioners quiet a busy mind, becoming more aware of the present moment and less caught up in what happened earlier or what’s to come. Many cognitive therapists commend it to patients as a way to help cope with anxiety and depression. More broadly, it’s seen as a means to deal with stress.

IF YOU HAVE A FOCUS PROBLEM, YOU ARE AT GREAT RISK!
Harvard University conducted a notable study on the relationship between mind wandering and happiness, revealing intriguing findings. The research suggests that a wandering mind, one that is not fully present in the current moment, is associated with decreased happiness and well-being. This study sheds light on the importance of cultivating mindfulness and the impact it can have on our overall happiness.
Mind Wandering and Unhappiness:
The study discovered that individuals whose minds frequently wander are more likely to experience unhappiness and dissatisfaction with their lives. When the mind is constantly preoccupied with thoughts unrelated to the present moment, it can lead to a sense of disconnection and discontent.
Impact on Mental Health:
The findings indicate that mind wandering is linked to a higher risk of depression, anxiety, and stress. Continuous engagement in wandering thoughts can disrupt emotional regulation and contribute to negative mental health outcomes.
Mindfulness as a Solution:
The study highlights mindfulness as a potential solution to combat mind wandering and promote happiness. Mindfulness practices, such as meditation and conscious awareness, encourage individuals to focus their attention on the present moment and develop an accepting and non-judgmental attitude towards their thoughts and emotions.
Cultivating Present-Moment Awareness:
By actively training the mind to stay present, individuals can enhance their ability to focus, reduce mind wandering, and increase overall happiness. Mindfulness practices provide tools to redirect attention back to the present, fostering a sense of clarity, contentment, and fulfillment.
Engaging in mindfulness has been shown to improve emotional well-being, reduce stress levels, and enhance overall life satisfaction. By training the mind to stay present, individuals can develop a deeper appreciation for the present moment, fostering positive emotions and a greater sense of happiness.
Picture this: You're surrounded by chaos, stress, and a never-ending to-do list. But what if I told you that mindfulness could be the key to finding peace and clarity amidst the chaos?
Mindfulness is more than just a trendy buzzword; it's a powerful practice backed by science. By simply tuning in to the present moment and focusing on your thoughts, feelings, and sensations, you can cultivate a sense of calm and improve your overall well-being.
But that's not all! Research has shown that regular mindfulness practice can reduce anxiety, improve concentration, boost creativity, and even enhance relationships. It's like a magic potion for a happier, more fulfilled life.

Doing Many Things at the Same Time; The Serious Harms of Multitasking
Researchers have found that multitasking reduces workers' productivity. They found that students and employees who are constantly moving quickly from one task to another are much less able to distinguish between unimportant matters and therefore make more mistakes. For many corporate employees, it has become almost impossible to stop and take a break.
According to a recent survey, more than half of American workers check messages from work on the weekend. In fact, 40% of these people continue to do so while on holiday. It's hard not to do this when your boss and colleagues know you're just a phone call away. Technology has moved far beyond our ability to cope.
WANT TO CREATE A MINDFULNESS ROADMAP IN 4 STEPS?
STEP 1 - WHAT PROBLEMS ARE YOU EXPERIENCING IN YOUR WORK, FAMILY OR SOCIAL LIFE? DOES STRESS, ANXIETY, DEPRESSION AND FOCUSING PROBLEMS AFFECT YOU?
Do you experience stress, anxiety, depression or focusing problems in your work life, social life, family life or educational life? If so, what problems do these situations cause you? Please write down the answers on a piece of paper. The first step to mindfulness is to be able to see these problem . (Please do not proceed to the next step until you have completed this step. If you continue reading after answering this question, a healthier road map will be created for you)
STEP 2 - WHERE DO YOU SEE YOURSELF PHYSICALLY, SPIRITUALLY AND COGNITIVELY IN THE NEXT 1 TO 5 YEARS UNLESS YOU SOLVE YOUR CURRENT PROBLEMS? WHY DON'T YOU WANT TO STAY THE WAY YOU ARE NOW?
We need to go deeper into each of the items you wrote down in the previous step. Take each of the problems caused by stress, anxiety, depression and focus problems one by one. If you do not solve these problems, what do you foresee will be the impact on you in 5 years? Write them down. Doing this exercise for each item you wrote down in the previous step will enable you to predict the true extent of the problems you are currently experiencing and the possible dangers they may cause in the future.
If you do not solve these problems you are experiencing due to stress, anxiety, depression and focusing problems, how will they have negative reflections on your life in 1 to 5 years. After 5 years, will your quality of life increase or decrease? How will the decrease in your enjoyment of life affect you? Please write the answers to these questions on a piece of paper.
STEP 3 - WHAT CHANGES DO YOU FORESEE IN YOUR WORK AND PERSONAL LIFE IF YOU OVERCOME THE EFFECTS OF STRESS, ANXIETY AND DEPRESSION?
In this step, I want you to think again about the problems you had in the previous step that would create serious problems for you in 1 to 5 years and imagine that you have solved these problems. I want you to imagine that you have been freed from all of these problems by some magical power and that there is no stress, anxiety, depression and focus problems anywhere in your life, in your self.
What will change in your life in? I want you to think about how overcomming each of these problems will have positive consequences on your work, family, social and educational life and write them down in detail on a piece of paper
STEP 4 - WHEN DO YOU HAVE TO SOLVE THESE PROBLEMS?
This stage is the most important step. How determined are you to solve your problems? I want you to write down the percentage on paper. (For example; I am 100% determined)
If your answer shows that you have a level of determination above 50%, then the urgency of your problems is quite high and you need to create a road map for yourself and address this problem with scientific methods as soon as possible. Otherwise, these problems may cause you to experience irreversible physical and mental problems in the following years
