Why Mindfulness is Important at Work

Mindfulness is being aware of your thoughts and feelings, through a gentle, nurturing lens without judgement.  Practicing mindfulness means focusing in the ‘present’ rather than reliving the past or worrying about the future. After all, it is called the ‘Present’! Many of you know, as an adult I have consciously and joyfully devoted over three decades to practicing, researching, and implementing Mindfulness. I have found and experienced incredible benefits mindfulness in every aspect of my professional and personal life!  Mindfulness has a place anywhere.  You can practice it at home, at work, in business or while you are simply hanging out with your friends.  The more you practice, the more benefits you will naturally see.  Don't get overwhelmed with this idea.  Mindfulness can only do for you in so far as you do for yourself.  

You’ll learn:

  • What is Mindfulness
  • Some of the benefits of mindfulness
  • What is in it for you
  • Practicing Mindfulness at work and in life

 
Managing stress or improving total well-being aren't enough of an incentive for you? Scientists have discovered that mindfulness techniques help improve physical, emotional and mental health. Did you know creativity, productivity, and innovation comes from our mind?
