In today's fast-paced world, it can be difficult to find moments of peace and clarity. However, there is a growing body of evidence that suggests that Mindfulness practices can help us to improve our focus, creativity, and well-being.

One way to incorporate Mindfulness into your life is through LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY®, a methodology that uses hands-on learning to improve understanding and problem-solving. As part of my Masters’ research, I explored how the practice of Mindfulness can enhance LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® workshops.

What is Mindfulness?

Mindfulness is the practice of paying attention to the present moment without judgment. It involves being aware of our thoughts, feelings, and bodily sensations without getting caught up in them.

How can Mindfulness benefit LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® workshops?

Mindfulness can benefit LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® workshops in a number of ways. For example, it can help participants to:
  • Focus on the task at hand: When we are mindful, we are less likely to be distracted by our thoughts or the environment. This can help us to focus on the task at hand and be more productive.
  • Be more creative: Mindfulness can help us to open up to new ideas and possibilities. This can be especially beneficial in LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® workshops, where participants are encouraged to think outside the box.
  • Communicate more effectively: Mindfulness can help us to listen more attentively and to communicate more clearly. This can improve communication and collaboration in LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® workshops.
