    Mindfulness at Work to Increase Employee Well-being and Productivity

    Few of us can go to work and leave all our personal or family issues at the door. As technology allows us to become more able to multi-task, it also blurs the line between personal life and work life. Stress from one world is easily carried over to the other. More and more employees are feeling the burden of “being “available” around the clock. According to the American Institute of Stress, the top two main causes of stress are “workload” and “juggling work and personal lives.” Job stress has been demonstrated to be associated with increased rates of heart attack, hypertension, and mental health disorders.

    Despite “ability to multi-task” being a commonly required skill at workplace, research in neuroscience tells us that our brain is not equipped to do heavy-duty multitasking. It actually works most efficiently when it can focus on a single task for a long period of time. Multi-tasking – performing several tasks at the same time – overloads the brain, causes it to pump out unusual amount of stress hormones, which puts a person “on edge.”

    In this interactive session, you will learn about mindfulness – a wellness technique to help you be present, focused, and paying attention to the task at hand. Mindfulness is a proven practice that can reduce stress, improve well-being,  prevent work-induced illnesses, and increase productivity. Come to learn about mindfulness as a philosophy, a personal health practice, and a workplace productivity tool so you can incorporate it in your personal/professional life as well as your company’s health and wellness program.
