Overview

Given that there are 70 million sick days taken per year due to stress, it is now more important than ever for your organisation to fully understand the benefits of Mindfulness. Implementing an effective Mindfulness strategy in the workplace can help reduce workplace anxiety, stress and enhance organisational performance.

Practised by organisations across the public sector, Mindfulness can enhance performance, improve working memory, executive function, and individual resilience.
