Mindfulness in the Workplace

You’ll hear the term “mindfulness” often in reference to strategies of working with personal or professional challenges. But let’s face it…most personal stress and struggle affects us in the workplace too…and vice versa. This goes for all levels – management, administrative, as well as support staff.

So when we talk about learning the life skills of Mindfulness and Meditation, separate approaches for different audiences are not really necessary. Perhaps just an emphasis on a particular theme in the curriculum, if desired. Mindfulness & meditation practices are proven to benefit many, if not all, workplace employees.

Much research has been done on the effects of mindfulness and meditation programs in the following professions, and has shown that:

  • Teachers: can experience decreased stress, burnout, and anxiety, and experience greater career satisfaction.
  • Healthcare workers: can experience less burnout and stress, have greater career satisfaction, and have more compassion towards those they are caring for, and themselves.
  • Military, law enforcement, firefighters, EMT workers, correctional officers, veterans and others in enormously stressful careers, find mindfulness and meditation practices help in coping with PTSD symptoms and trauma. They can help with issues of hyper-arousal, repetitive intrusive thoughts, and avoidance behaviour and also help cultivate more compassion towards those they are protecting.
  • Workplace leaders and teammates can benefit from mindfulness programs through experiencing a reduction in distraction, and an increase in productivity. Mindfulness can also help employees become more efficient and effective, and facilitates better communication. It can help leaders have more flexible thinking and be more purpose-driven and problem-solving-oriented.

No matter what industry we're in, mindfulness and meditation programs can improve our overall well-being both at work and at home.
