Event description

Picture the productivity gains if you and your employees were 35% less stressed and slept 20% better with improved daily focus.
Mindful intervention programmes, including meditation, have been shown to do just that.
By improving attention skills, self-awareness and emotional reactivity, you will be far better equipped to deal with daily frustrations and challenges. These core skills can help you adapt to change, recover faster from setbacks and make more effective use of your time.
Building this resilience not only benefits individuals, it improves productivity and business culture.

The workshop will introduce you to evidence-based techniques and tools, and why they work.

Understand how mindfulness can:
• Reduce stress and negative thinking
• Increase your focus and efficiency
• Enhance self-awareness

You will receive an introduction into mindful tools to increase motivation and achieve your goals.
