Many Americans are now learning to meditate at the office. From Aetna to General Mills to Google, corporate America has bought into mindfulness in a big way, rolling out employee training programs across its campuses and promoting mindful leaders to top positions. These efforts, which gained momentum after the crash of 2008, have coincided with the most precipitous decline in fortunes Americans have seen since the Great Depression—a period of layoffs, outsourcing, and the casualization of labor. Workers who held on to their jobs experienced what journalists Clara Jeffery and Monika Bauerlein have called “the great speedup.” Under pressure to do more with less, Americans struggle to complete an ever-expanding to-do list during ever-expanding working hours without an increase in pay. For many, staying in work has required a fundamental change in lifestyle: In 2002 just 8 percent of employees checked email before arriving at the office. Today 50 percent deal with email before even getting out of bed.
