Mindfulness at work
Employers can see tangible and financial benefits by introducing mindfulness and regular meditation as part of their wellbeing culture. It helps with reduced absenteeism, increased productivity and overall staff stress reduction.
Mindfulness plays an important role in your mental & physical wellbeing as Associate Professor Craig Hassed from Monash University explains.
Mindfulness can play a role in helping to:
Reduce the physical wear and tear on the body
Increase your immune system
Switch off excessive inflammation in the body
Relieve cardiovascular stress
Switch down cortisol and damage to your bones
Why mindfulness in education?
Because you can't separate learning and wellbeing.
Wellbeing is essential for learning. With mindfulness, students are more focussed and more engaged learners.
Why mindfulness in the workplace?
Because work life balance and wellbeing is not just about flexible work schedules and office dogs.
Some people lack the tools and skills to be able to achieve balance at work. Research shows that mindfulness can help staff take a pre-emptive approach to managing their mental health, stress and their emotions in the workplace.
