Introduction to Mindfulness: How to Reduce Stress & Improve Productivity @ Work
A Workshop to unlock the secrets to living with purpose, passion and peace of mind amidst the chaos of modern day life.
Stress has reached unsustainable levels. Our relationships are failing at work and at home. Ease, calm and joy often feels out reach.
Why? Because we have lost touch with the very essence of what is important. Our phones, work, email, boss, kids, boy/girl-friend, reality TV, Instagram, Facebook… is causing our minds to be a clutter of nothingness. Simply reacting to what life throws our way. The most natural and simple elements that make us happy and fulfilled have been forgotten.
But there is good news... Using the natural and easy-to-implement skills of Modern Day Mindfulness, we can become reacquainted with our own happiness. This new way of thinking allows us to create deeper connection to self, and helps us to build the foundation for a life worth living.
In this 2.5-hour workshop, you’ll walk away with a Mindful tool set to apply to every day life and learn the 3 pillars of Mindfulness: Presence, Acceptance and Compassion. Overall, this is the beginning of an amazing journey to help:
- Find balance in life between work, home and society
- Reduce stress and anxiety created by work overload
- Improve health with easy nutrition and movement guidelines
- Enhance energy and productivity through out the day
- Encourage Mindful communication and relationship building techniques
- Unlock the secrets to staying calm and creating equanimity
- Become a better person.. a better parent, better friend, co-worker, and leader
- Create a routine that allows for more moment to moment joy in life (aka Happiness).
In this ground breaking workshop, you’ll find yourself mentally unraveling your anxieties and false societal expectations. This will allow you start the creation of an easeful frame of mind that you’ll want to carry with you for the rest of your life.
