What is Mindfulness?


Mindfulness is a very effective tool to help you thrive in all areas of your life. It can help give you the power to live your life to its full potential. When you look back over the last few weeks and months what defining moments can you actually remember? Imagine if you could learn to make a small shift in your thinking that could have a major effect to your life…..to enable you to have the discernment and focus, to choose where you place your attention and to realise you have the option to make wiser choices in every moment.

 

What are the Benefits of Mindfulness?


  • Enhanced decision making
  • Effective communication
  • Stronger teams and leaders
  • Superior creativity and innovation
  • Improved engagement
  • Confidence around change
  • Greater resilience
  • Positive wellbeing
Happy, motivated people can create immense value for the companies they work for. And people can be more successful and fulfilled in the workplace if they can feel more resilient, remain objective, be responsive rather than reactive, show compassion to themselves and others as well as build trust with their colleagues and other stakeholders. Mindfulness can be such a helpful tool to enable people build these resources.

As well as individuals, many employers are now becoming aware of the benefits of supporting the development of their employees through training in Mindfulness as part of their CSR and CPD programmes.

The American Institute of Stress has calculated that circa $300bn of economic output is lost in the US each year through absenteeism, poor performance, employee turnover, accidents and stress-related workers compensation claims. This phenomenon is not restricted to the US. Indeed, the UK Health & Safety Executive (HSE) estimates that self-reported work-related stress, depression or anxiety accounted for an estimated 11.7 million lost working days in Britain in 2015/16.

Cutting edge companies, who have already successfully adopted the Mindfulness training programmes include McKinsey, Nike, Procter & Gamble, Apple, Astra Zeneca, Accenture, Google and Yahoo.

And many of our clients bear out the growing body of research that points to training in Mindfulness being a support for the workplace, that can help bring about a more productive, creative and collegiate environment for success.

Mindfulness at Work has developed an effective 5-week, 45 minute programme (MiN) to help enable employees to develop and sustain these important traits.

Secular mindfulness training started to become available in the States in the 1970s – through the ground-breaking work of Jon Kabat-Zinn at UMass. Since then, there has been considerable research into Mindfulness including assessments using control groups that point to its efficacy. MRI scans of the grey matter of the brain’s hippocampus, the area of the brain associated with learning, memory, compassion, introspection and self-awareness, have been shown it to increase in participants of Mindfulness programs. Conversely, the grey matter of the amygdala, which is known to play an important part in stress and anxiety, has been shown to decrease. The US Marines have a Mindfit program which has been evaluated by Jha et al with some very positive findings around working memory under stress, as well as physical and mental resilience. Cutting edge companies such as Apple and Google offer mindfulness at work training for employees. In the workplace, individuals have reported that it has helped them to build teamwork, enhance creativity & communication and resolve conflict.

Mindfulness Techniques


‘Being’ is the term we give to the state of mind when you have a neutral and accepting awareness and attention to what is happening in the present moment.

Although you can never totally empty your mind of the ‘back chat’ of thoughts, through practising the techniques of the Mindfulness is Now (MIN) programme, you learn to be more present and aware – with an open heart and an open mind to this experience.

By being in the present moment, you have the opportunity to feel more fully alive; noticing the tug of the past and future, but focussed more completely on the present and its potential. You look at life with a fresh approach, be kind to yourself in a non-judgmental way, free yourself from old habits while knowing that the future is yours to create.

Many who practice mindfulness report that it can enhance their creativity, emotional resilience, clarity of thought and co-operation while reducing stress, feelings of powerlessness, fatigue and somatic illness.
