Does meditation improve you productivity?
Yes, but the mechanism by which it does so isn't necessarily direct.
In other words, you won't meditate in the morning and suddenly be productive that day. It is an iterative, and often intermittent, process, particularly when first starting.
I would like to try, do you know where to start from?
Thoughts are inevitable.
IMO the trick is the process by which we:
- Recognize those thoughts, and
- Acknowledge them, and
- Let them go.
This is the same process to use when we recognize we're no longer doing what we want to be, regardless of the endeavor: meditating, solving problems, reading, learning a language, and so on.
Meditation is about awareness. Awareness transfers into (normally) non-meditative states. There are studies coming out now regarding mindfulness, neurological differences between brains that meditate and those that don't, how those brains react to and process internal and external stimuli, etc.
While not directly related to productivity, IMO the results of those studies make a strong argument that brains that meditate re-capture focus more easily and ease the internal chatter and distractions that can reduce productivity.
