Mindfulness - Blog

90 minute Course

In today’s fast-paced world we can all benefit from having a powerful toolkit of practical strategies to keep us mentally focused, emotionally balanced, and performing at our best. Mindfulness is such an approach. If you find that juggling the multiple demands of the day can sometimes leave you feeling a little bit frazzled then this session is for you.

Introduction

Having been extensively researched by the scientific community for the past three decades Mindfulness is known to enable people to improve their work performance and overall wellbeing. In fact, practicing these techniques for just a few weeks has been shown to produce changes in the brain which results in less stress reactivity, improved concentration and focus, better interpersonal relationships and more. Work-based Mindfulness Training is gaining popularity with companies such as Google, Intel, Apple, and other multinationals now offering it for all their staff.

Topics Covered

The session follows this sequence:

  • A short presentation defining Mindfulness and highlighting some of the key benefits identified by scientific research
  • A short group discussion on the distinction between ‘Mindless’ and ‘Mindful’ and reflection on the insights this offers about our personal work situation
  • Learn and practise a 3-minute exercise which enables you to reboot the brain, rebalance the emotions, and boost physical energy
  • Learn and practise two further Mindfulness-based exercises
  • Time is allowed for people to share their experiences and address questions about how to apply these approaches to a typical working day
