With todays "always on" technology, the lines between work and home life are starting to blur. People are becoming overwhelmed, not only with the volume of work, but the added expectation of being available anytime, anywhere.
Is it any wonder people are finding it increasingly hard to "switch off"
In 2020 many employers are seeing an increase in stress related absence. Mood disorders such as anxiety and depression are becoming the number one reason for people taking time off work.
Research has found that those who practice mindfulness are more creative, make better decisions, demonstrate an enhanced ability to focus and stay calm under pressure. It helps to master peak levels of stress and provides an ability to recharge quickly so why wouldn’t employers actively encourage this practice?
The good news is that many do. Mindfulness programs that help leaders and employees to improve their productivity and feel happier at work are becoming increasingly popular in the workplace
