With the stress of the past few years, more and more people are paying attention to their mental health and well-being in the workplace. As event managers, we are well aware of how stress can impact a person and the productivity of a team. We have been on a mission to explore and find solutions on how people can be more mindful and look after themselves in stressful situations.
Incorporating mindfulness into your daily routine can bring many benefits to the workplace including:
- De-stress and help people to deal with stressful situations calmer manner
- Reduces anxiety
- Helps improve memory
- Increases ability to focus on the task at hand
Here are some of our top tips for better mindfulness that you can start incorporating today:
1: Take Regular breaks (outdoors if possible)
If you are working at a screen all day, then it is important to take regular breaks to stand up and step away from the screen. Even better if you can pop outside as well.
2: Breathing and meditation
Learning some breathing and meditation techniques are fantastic ways to relax and refocus.
Find an activity that you enjoy doing that helps to get the blood pumping and leaves you feeling energized. Yoga is perfect for beginners because you can find plenty of workouts to suit your schedule and level, while learning to meditate.
Keep a journal so that you can look back on what has and hasn’t worked for you, to continue your path to mental improvement.
Our Mindfulness workshop is a great starting point for learning about mindfulness and the different techniques you can incorporate into your daily life. We recommend scheduling monthly sessions for your team so that they can continuously learn new techniques or simply use that time to practice mindfulness.
