How does Mindfulness relate to Work?

The World of Work has undergone phenomenal changes over the past decade, with more companies recognising that their PEOPLE are their greatest ASSET, and therefore safeguarding and supporting well-being is a key business need, not a 'nice to have'.

The demands of modern life mean that people are living at a level of stress previously unseen.  This has been exacerbated during the pandemic.

How can Mindfulness help my organisation?

Research has demonstrated the efficacy of Mindfulness at Work Programs.

Studies on the benefits of mindfulness in the workplace have been conducted in many companies and organisations, including the UK parliament, Google, Harvard Leadership Programme and London Transport. 

With more than one third of the average person's day being spent on work, it's of vital importance that workplaces actively cultivate a sense of well-being and personal and professional fulfilment for their staff. Stress works against these goals, and is a major contributor to professional burnout and disengagement.

 

Mindfulness training provides the skills to reduce our stress while increasing our physical, mental and emotional well-being. Additionally, research shows that mindfulness actually enlarges the empathy centre in the brain, thus improving workplace relationships. These positive changes translate to increased Employee Engagement, which in turn drives greater productivity and business success.

What makes our courses unique?

As the field of Mindfulness matures it is now recognised that when the tools of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Positive Psychology are offered as part of a total Mindfulness package that the results from those trainings are far greater than when Mindfulness training is offered as a standalone package. The reason for this is very simple. Everybody alive has built up negative memories and negative thought patterns through the course of their life. They then attempt to practice Mindfulness, however these thoughts have become lodged in the mind through repetition, perhaps on a daily basis. CBT and Positive Psychology help change those negative thinking patterns, leaving an uncluttered mind, with freedom to practice and enjoy all the benefits of Mindfulness.

Benefits of our Mindfulness Courses

“Carmel Farnan, from The Irish Mindfulness Academy, came into our offices to give us a course on Mindfulness. The presentation was excellent and the course itself was a very positive experience. Personally, I found it to very calming and felt very relaxed throughout. I fully intend to bring what I have learned from this course into my personal life and also into my working life by practising it on a daily basis."
