The problem we address: Workplace Stress
Do people in your workplace suffer from stress and if so, what services are on offer to help them? Here are two good reasons for tackling stress:
1. It’s bad for business:
Some people say stress helps to motivate them. Pressure can be a good motivator, but after a certain point it leads to worse performance and ill-health, as this graph shows.
Do you know how much stress costs your business everyday?
2. It’s bad for health:
Stress is now the number one reason for people to be off sick. It causes a huge number of health problems, as this diagram shows:
Our Solution: Mindfulness
In the last one we ran, stress, anxiety and over-whelm reduced by 25%.
“I’ve learnt to be much more aware of what’s going on in my body so that when tension and stress start to build up I can take a step back and have a break and relax for a while rather than just keep on going and creating stress related problems in my body and mind.”
Emma, Eviva Communications.
What happens in our workshops?
The three key skills we teach are:
- Training the mind to focus on one thing at time and de-stressing
- Improving self-awareness and emotional intelligence
- Cultivating a positive attitude towards yourself and others
Here’s some feedback from a recent workshop with PwC:
“Informative. Encouraging. Inspiring”
“Really enlightening and useful”
“Fab – thank you, Andy!”
“Very helpful and calming”
“Useful and easy to implement in everyday life”
What’s the first step?
In the first instance we offer a one hour taster session so you can experience what mindfulness is. Of the people who have come to our tasters so far, most of whom had never tried mindfulness before, 98% said in the feedback that they thought practising it would improve their performance at work.
