Japan's current COVID "problem" should also be viewed relatively to the rest of the world. The case numbers may be going up, but by most countries, they are still incredibly low, both in new cases and in deaths. The US has 10 times as many cases per 1M people, and 10X the number of deaths. All the European countries also have significantly more cases+deaths per 1M persons. Japan is also doing far better than Asia and the World on average. Good that Japan has high standards, but the problem seems to be less than it's being made out to be. If only Japan could get its vaccination rate up!

There is something incongruous about the premise of using "mindfulness" and meditation as a corporate tool, which, by definition is fundamentally and ultimately about making money. The monetization of meditation is not only cynical, but it misses the point. If it made all these people better members of society, then great; however, I'm not sure that's going to happen. Being simply "mindful" is meaningless unless one is mindful of the right behavior.
