What does it mean to be mindful? It is the experience of being attuned to, and aware of ourselves, others, and our environment.

 

Why is that important in the workplace? Without being mindful (aware) of our emotions and how we handle them we may miss an opportunity to build relationships and inadvertently destroy them with a snap judgement or an inapproprate response.

 

Studies show how the practice can increase productivity and enhance well being. However it is not a panacea and people need to be aware of preconceptions, and stereotypes that may interfere.

 

How does it affect Physical, Emotional and Mental Health? While we are hard wired to deal with stress, the constant busy-ness in today's society coupled with constant change many employees are experiencing burnout and chronic stress.

 

Being aware of our body's responses along with building on resiliency strategies to deal with stress and change while understanding the continuum of mental health are all components of the mindfulness seminars Cynthia presents.
