Why mindfulness at work?
We spend a lot of time in the office. Given the competing demands at the workplace and distractions by technology, managing our attention has become one of the critical life skills for 21st century for success. According to a recent study 83% of employees indicate that “work” is their greatest source of stress. Many ordinary activities at the workplace such as emails, phone calls, meetings, eating and walking are opportunities to easily weave in mindfulness. Application of work place mindfulness is shown to result in improved focus, enhanced self-awareness, better decision making and boost in leadership skills, increased productivity, enhanced working relationships & empathy, ease in organizational transformation, increased creativity/innovation, and greater resiliency, while absenteeism, burnout and turnover, etc. is reduced. The effects of mindfulness can be felt in a short time, and the benefits continue to deepen with consistent practice.
Corporate mindfulness sessions are woven with gentle, brief movement breaks and easy to apply stress reduction techniques – such as guided breath practices.
