MINDFULNESS IN THE WORKPLACE

Mindfulness Training For Enlightened Organisations

Why bring Mindfulnesss into your organisation?

A total of 12.8 million working days were lost because of work-related stress, anxiety and depression in 2018-19, and that’s before the pandemic 

Reduce Stress

Not all stress is bad, sometimes it’s desirable, it drives action, gets things done, but very quickly beyond a certain point it becomes very damaging to health wellbeing and productivity.  Stress can destroy individuals and infest organisations. Stressed people find it hard to focus, make poor decisions, act out and eventually burn out and get sick. And quite frankly I think that’s a tragic waste of the amazing exceptional talented people you have working in your organisation – particularly when some simple mindfulness practices could help avoid a lot of this

Greater Resilience

These are challenging times and a lot of people are finding it really tough. Mindfulness can’t take away life’s challenges and it’s not about wrapping anyone in cotton wool or hiding from ourselves. It teaches us how to manage our emotions consciously without reacting to them, so we can choose our response and deal most effectively with the presenting challenge . I call it inside out management, by managing ourselves in any given situation we are in the best place to manage the sitaution

Happier Working Environment

 What do people feel when they step into your building or talk to you on the phone?  What do your colleagues feel when they come to work? What do your customers feel? What is the emotion of your organisation? With mindfulness, we can bring more enjoyment to work, freshness, enthusiasm and whole  new energy – Youll improve staff retention, have a better team working, better communication, more creativity and better customer relations and  I’ve seen magical things  arise from here

Why Mindfulness is the most important thing you can do

In the workplace there is a tendency to place all our emphasis on doing, doing more doing better, but almost no attention is given to your state of mind. Your state of mind determines the quality of everything you do, if you are not in the right place it contaminates every decision you make and every interaction you have.. If you are in a good place you are more productive, more creative, you communicate better and you enjoy better working relationships with colleagues and customers. Your state of mind It’s the most important thing there is

Did you know you can rewire your brain with Mindfulness?

Here's The science

Did you know that Mindfulness isn't just about dealing with stress? Mindfulness actually rewires your brain. Scientists have discovered that by practising mindfulness you can extinguish unhelpful synaptic connections and increase your grey matter and create new connections in new areas of the brain. Scientists call this neuroplasticity, your brain is not fixed it is ever-changing and you can consciously change your brain and take control of how your mind works.  ... Mindfulness actually goes way beyond what research has discovered but here's what is known so far.Mindfulness increases the grey matter in the anterior cingulate cortex (ACC), a structure located deep inside the forehead, behind the brain’s frontal lobe. The ACC is associated with self-regulation, meaning the ability to purposefully direct attention and behaviour, suppress inappropriate knee-jerk responses, and switch strategies flexibly. Mindfulness develops an area of the brain associated with emotions and emotional regulation. It doesn't stop you feeling emotions, but gives you the mental space to deal with them in a healthy way, it won't protect you from the up's and down and the challenges of life but it will develop areas of the brain so that you can deal with them effectively and make clear choices rather than being prone to reaction. In addition to self-regulation, the ACC is associated with learning from past experience to support optimal decision-making. Scientists point out that the ACC may be particularly important in the face of uncertain and fast-changing conditions These findings are just the beginning of the story. Neuroscientists have also shown that practising mindfulness affects brain areas related to perception, body awareness, pain tolerance, emotion regulation, introspection, complex thinking, insight, emotional intelligence and our sense of self. In short, Mindfulness makes you resilient, helps you overcome negative emotions, deal with stress, helps you to override dysfunctional thinking patterns; Mindfulness helps you to make clear rational decisions and puts you back in control of your life, whatever it throws at you..
