Empower your employees.
Strengthen your organization.
Stress related physical and mental issues cost Canadian employers billions of dollars in claims and lost productivity.
Chronic stress is linked to: depression, anxiety, insomnia, substance abuse, memory loss, poor concentration, change of brain structure, inability to cope with pressure and illness.
Anxiety has become the most common mental health diagnosis and is creating problems of absenteeism and presenteesism (when employees come to work not mentally present) in the workplace.
Empower your employees. Mindfulness is training the mind to move beyond the busyness and chatter, and to be present, focused and positive. Anyone can learn how to do it and it can used at any point throughout a person’s daily life.
Scientific research has proven that practicing mindfulness enables employees to function better in high performance environments; increasing productivity and efficiency, enhancing emotional intelligence, reducing stress and improving self-regulation – the best predictor of success.
Increasing Emotional Intelligence
Emotional Intelligence (EI) is a term used to describe the ability to perceive, use, understand, and regulate emotions. The practice of mindfulness helps to develop greater self-awareness in employees, providing a greater capacity to understand, and to interact and communicate with others more effectively.
Studies show a strong correlation between those ranked as good leaders and those who scored high on the emotional ability scale. Successful organizations such as Google, are teaching EI-based courses to help educate employees, encourage strong leadership, and ultimately, strengthen their organization.
Improving Self Regulation: The Best Predictor of Success
A component of well-being supported by neuroscience, self-regulation is the ability to rebound quickly when things don’t go as expected. Shortened deadline? Change in plans? Mental training helps employees to learn to take things in stride and ‘go with the flow’.

REDUCES STRESS & ANXIETY
We think anxiety is always created from something on the outside. Think again. It starts with our thinking. Anxiety it is caused when we are constantly focused or worried about the future. The mind is the ‘master’ and the body is the ‘servant’. Whatever the mind is thinking it is instantly messaged down to the body and the body reacts – in a positive or negative way depending on the thought. So - when you start to observe your thoughts, change your thinking and live more in the moment rather than the future, the body will follow suit and relax.
This is what mindfulness looks like. Anyone can do. And you can practice at work and at home. Anytime. Anywhere.
YOU ARE WHAT YOU THINK
If your mind is filled with thoughts like “I’m so stressed. I have way too much on my plate. There is never enough time in the day.” You are right. You will be stressed and all of these thoughts will prevent you from focusing on what you need to do and getting your work done. It will become a self-fulfilling prophecy.
