How we help

Mindfulness in the Workplace

Mindfulness is clinically proven to aid calmness, clarity of thought and focus. Using techniques such as present moment awareness and meditation, mindfulness can help us become more aware of our passing thoughts and emotions without being distracted or overwhelmed by them. Mindfulness is also clinically proven to reduce stress and blood pressure while alleviating the symptoms of depression and anxiety. In addition those who practice mindfulness often find they sleep better, work more efficiently and find greater happiness and fulfilment in their relationships and life in general.

In the workplace, mindfulness is proven to help with clarity of thought, focus, positivity, memory, decision making and general mental well-being. This is of course in addition to the benefits above in terms of managing stress and anxiety.
