In today’s globally active digital world, the pressure to be active online 24/7 to manage incoming emails, texts and conference calls, makes it easy to experience situations where we feel overloaded and exhausted by deadlines. We often become so absorbed in our daily work that we forget about ourselves completely.
Organisations are increasingly seeing a rise in the costs of absenteeism, presenteeism and staff turnover associated with stress and mental health problems. Our goal is to bring mindfulness to the workplace to obtain greater employee engagement and wellbeing, which in turn leads to a more productive workplace, with happy and motivated employees.
What is mindfulness?
Mindfulness is all about changing your mindset and being aware of what is happening in this very moment, in a non-judgemental way, that integrates your mind, heart and body. In theory, that may sound simple, but it requires a lot of practice to train our minds to respond to what we are thinking.
