Introduction to Mindfulness at Work
About the programme:
Mindfulness is a great approach to use to increase focus on what you are doing, be that at work, home or in sport. With the onset of changing work patterns, social distancing and potential concern about self and love-ones resulting from the Covid-19 global pandemic. Having a way to stay present in the moment, to concentrate on the task in hand and to maintain a healthy and positive outlook is not just a good idea, but makes great business sense. In times of change, different people deal with challenges in very different ways. Some grasp the bull by the horns and rise creatively to the challenge and others will feel a sense of overwhelm, anxiety, fear and hopelessness which can make it difficult to focus, make decisions, maintain relationships and well-being. Mindfulness can help to manage the tendency of our minds to imagine a future that is not the reality, and has not even taken place yet! Worry is negative goal setting and creates stress if allowed to be the norm in our lives. Choosing to place our attention on what we can control, in the present moment, reduces stress hormones and enables greater clarity in decision making and greater well-being. This programme is designed to introduce you to how you can use mindfulness in the workplace, for yourself and with your teams. The module is delivered by CMBD’s Carroll Macey, a published author and expert in Mindfulness.
