EMPLOYEE WELLNESS FOCUS
I AM Mind and Body Wellness offers a variety of integrative mindfulness programs to corporate and institutional clients, all designed to enhance mindfulness, lower stress levels, increase productivity and boost employee satisfaction.
Often touted as the equivalent of going to the gym for the mind, mindfulness practice provides relief for busy professionals—asking them to slow down, stop, sit, relax, breathe, and find a moment to be in the present. Research of ongoing mindfulness practice has documented many benefits for businesses. Increased employee focus, improved communication skills, work/life balance, improved memory and enhanced decision-making capacity are all benefits of ongoing mindfulness practice in the workplace.
Employee Wellness Programs – Menu of Services
Option A1: Introduction to the Practice of Mindfulness
In this 1.5-hour session, employees will learn how mindfulness can enhance performance by increasing focus and reducing stress.
Option A2: Eight Week Ongoing Mindfulness Practice Instruction
This module is available after employees have completed Option A1, “Introduction to the Practice of Mindfulness”. Learning how to do mindfulness is quite different from a daily mindfulness practice. All research on effectiveness is based on a consistent, daily mindfulness practice. Module A2 will reinforce and hone “how to do” mindfulness skills. Participants will have the opportunity to learn and explore different mindfulness techniques and activities, discovering those that are most natural and effective for them. Eight weeks of instruction and participation has been shown to effectively help one integrate mindfulness practice into their daily routine.
Option A3: Advanced Mindfulness Application Sessions
After employees have completed Option A1, “Introduction to the Practice of Mindfulness”, select the 1.5-hour session(s) that will have the greatest impact on your organization. Topics include but are not limited to:
- Reducing Stress and Anxiety
- Finding Work/Life Balance
- Mindful Goal Setting and Achievement
- Improving Quality of Sleep
Option B: Three Hour Mindfulness Training and Guided Imagery Meditation Workshop
Your group will learn how mindfulness can enhance performance and achievement by increasing focus and reducing stress. This workshop explores the science of mindfulness and how it can be applied to everyday life and work to enhance wellbeing, productivity and focus. Guided Imagery Meditation is introduced as a stress reduction and relaxation tool. This technique increases awareness and helps participants find solutions to problems and confront difficult situations head on.
Option C: Four-Week Mindfulness Training and Emotional Self-Regulation Skills
After completion of A1, these 2-hour sessions provide employees the opportunity to further develop mindfulness and meditation skills to manage stress more effectively. Emotional self-regulation is the ability to respond to life’s situations with the range of emotions in a manner that is socially tolerable, flexible and with minimized impulsive responses.
