The practice of mindfulness has benefits for the American workforce. It helps with stress reduction, focus and self-awareness—even improves engagement and productivity. But according to a new study, many people are using it in the wrong way. Researchers at the University of Waterloo found that most laypeople confuse the mindfulness practices with passive acceptance of problems—a misconception scientists say ignores the important work of engaging with life’s challenges.

You may feel numb, intense shock, confusion, and fear, or overwhelmed by a host of conflicting emotions, sometimes all at once.

As a result, some people take advantage of this and can be quite cruel and unpleasant towards others.

And many of you feel defeated, unable to fight, and perhaps even as if you’re failing as a Christ-follower. I understand that feeling.
