Corporate Employee Mindfulness Program
A HEALTHY STAFF MAKES A HEALTHY COMPANY
Are your workers stressed? If so it’s not surprising. The American Institute of Stress has found that 3 out of 4 doctor visits in the United States are for stress-related ailments, and that stress is the basic cause of 60% of illness and disease today. Stress impacts our physical, mental and emotional health, and takes a serious toll on our work performance. Stressed-out employees have lowered performance, generate higher health care costs, and negatively impact their colleagues and working environment, detracting from your bottom line.
What about challenges around focus? In today’s “attention deficit economy,” distractions constantly pull your workers away from the work at hand. Research shows that our minds wander from the present task 47% of the time! A strong and clear focus is one of the most valuable resources in today’s market.
Long Beach Meditation is a 501 (c)3 educational nonprofit that teaches the technique of mindfulness meditation. We offer practical, evidence-based courses that teach your employees how to use the technique of mindfulness in their professional and personal lives. Partner with Long Beach Meditation through our Corporate Employee Mindfulness Program and begin a journey in developing the potential of your staff and company.
Mindfulness meditation has been shown to be a very effective way to positively address these challenges for your company and its employees. Hundreds of studies in the last ten years have shown the following benefits of mindfulness training:
- Increased attention and focus;
- Decreased stress and anxiety;
- Clearer judgement and decision-making;
- Increased energy and creativity.
WHAT DOES MINDFULNESS ACTUALLY DO TO THE BODY?
For one thing, it changes our brain. The cells and neurons in the brain are constantly making new connections and disrupting old ones based on response to stimuli, a quality that researchers call experience-based neuroplasticity. This affects the neural circuits of the brain, which in turn affects how we respond to situations. So with mindfulness, you are literally restructuring your brain to be less stressed, make better decisions, have clearer focus, and improve your overall well-being.
