Mindfulness in the Workplace

One in four people will experience mental ill health each year.

According to the latest research by Deloitte, mental ill health at work, which leads to reduced productivity, absenteeism and staff turnover, costs UK businesses £43 billion each year.  This means that mental ill health costs just over £1,700 for every employee in the UK economy.

To help people build resilience and combat these statistics and the ongoing costs to businesses, The Shaw Mind Foundation has launched a wellbeing programme, especially designed for business communities.

Two Mindfulness in the Workplace workshops will take place on Tuesday 21st April at Carriages Café in Newark from 8am to 10am or 11am to 1pm.

The workshops are informal and relaxed, with some teaching, discussions, videos and practical mindful exercises, that you can put into practice at work and home.  The training can help you become more aware of how you are thinking, feeling and engaging with yourself and the world, moment by moment.

Instead of simply resisting or ignoring how you feel, mindfulness can help you pause, take a breath and then respond more wisely instead of impulsively and unskillfully reacting. We then avoid making rash decisions, judging ourselves (and others) harshly and becoming lost in the dramas of life.

Mindfulness can help us to handle pressure more effectively, think more clearly and manage people and situations that we might previously have found difficult or challenging.  In addition, mindfulness can help to widen our perspective, increase our lateral thinking, improve our memory, deepen our learning, strengthen our resilience and develop a more positive, ‘flow’ state of mind.

The cost of this workshop is £5.00 per booking.
