Mindfulness in the Workplace

online class-2.png

In the workplace, mindfulness training and practice have become more important than ever. Employees or workers are facing new challenges related to working from home, including diminished productivity, the disappearance of boundaries, the added stress from being with their family all the time and having to supervise the children's schoolwork on top of office work, and so on. These struggles could lead to increased anxiety and stress, anger, irritability, and even depression. Expectedly, all of these will eventually affect performance and productivity.


Because of the new ways of working, organizations carry more responsibility of keeping their employees healthy mentally and physically. One of the ways by which they can do this is continuing to offer mindfulness programs or classes even during the pandemic (or, especially during the pandemic). 


Experts have found that being more mindful leads to an increase in compassion and empathy--the ingredients for personal and collective resilience. Mindfulness also helps one feel more connected with others, thereby reducing feelings of loneliness and isolation, which have become prevalent because of quarantine/lockdown protocols, social distancing, and other limitations to human connection.


Corporations have started to offer these mindfulness classes online, via Zoom or some other video conferencing platform. Employees or workers have given good feedback on this, so it appears that online mindfulness classes are working as well as the live lessons.


It is, however, very important to learn from a qualified teacher, one who has dedicated years of personal practice and training or study to the discipline. The International Mindfulness Teachers Association (IMTA) is the certifying body that upholds standards for mindfulness teachers and teacher training programs worldwide.  


Organizations like Mindfulness Asia offer workshops and classes to develop resilience and the mental wellbeing of employees. Its founder is an IMTA Certified Mindfulness Teacher and holder of significant credentials as proof of credibility and competence.


As we have seen above, the success and resilience of an organization directly correlate with the health and wellbeing of its members. Having a mindfulness practice is apparently necessary, now more than ever.
