Bringing Mindfulness into your Business
There is no better, quicker or more effective way of managing stress and developing a state of deep-seated calm and centeredness than mindfulness meditation.
Such are the benefits of mindfulness meditation that cutting edge global companies such as Google, Microsoft and Virgin now offer structured mindfulness programmes to all current and new employees as part of their employment package.
Mindfulness meditation is a non-religious and Westernised form of meditation that aims to ground individuals in the present moment in an accepting and non-judgemental way.
Hundreds of peer reviewed medical journal articles conclusively highlight the benefits of regular mindfulness meditation which include:
Reduced levels of stress and burnout
Reduced levels of anxiety and depression
A more effective immune system
Reduced number of sick days per year
Increased cognitive performance
Enhanced sense of wellbeing and happiness
Greater levels of gratitude and life satisfaction
With the correct instruction, mindfulness meditation is easy to learn, easy to practice and can make a big difference very quickly.
We offer 3 different methods of introducing and integrating mindfulness meditation to your workforce:
