Business in Mind offers specialist training and guidance in mindfulness solutions
Mindfulness presents businesses with valuable, scientifically proven benefits, enhancing employee communication, concentration and productivity. It improves overall health and well-being, significantly reducing stress while harnessing potential, creating a collaborative and positive work environment. This transforms workplace culture and outlook, with highly engaged, motivated individuals generating greater client satisfaction and loyalty.
Derived from traditional meditative practices, mindfulness involves retraining one’s attention to remain in the present moment, rather than dwelling on the past or future. Practice has been shown to restructure the brain, increasing the density of grey matter in as little as 8 weeks. Our training is secular in approach and includes a variety of efficient, easy-to-follow techniques, alongside advice on ways in which mindfulness can be applied to the work setting.
Mindfulness is becoming increasingly mainstream with various forward-looking companies and institutions, such as Google, General Mills, Aetna, GlaxoSmithKline, Lloyds and the Home Office, having introduced mindfulness programmes within their organisations. It is taught in schools and recommended by the National Institute of Health and Care Excellence (NICE) as an NHS treatment and preventative for anxiety and depression.
“After the session I received excellent feedback from our employees. Many of them felt like they’d been awakened to a practice that would be extremely helpful to them in their day to day lives, and I know for a fact that a few months on, some of them are still regularly practising and have continued to read up about mindfulness.I consider the session to have been a great success and was one of the highlights of our Health and Wellbeing week. I’d highly recommend Business in Mind to any other companies considering offering something similar to their employees.”
