STRESS LESS, ACHIEVE MORE: 3 Keys to Improving Performance and Well-Being with Mindfulness

Are you feeling pressured and overwhelmed with your responsibilities? Are you having trouble balancing your work and personal life?  Are you finding yourself constantly distracted and unable to focus? Whether a corporate or nonprofit professional, you know your work is important and contributing to society in positive ways, yet you find it difficult to keep up with the pace of work and you are not finding time for rest and quality time with loved ones.

If any of the above resonates, you are in the right place! Join Elizabeth for a workshop on mindfulness, a scientifically validated and practical way to bring more focus, clarity, calm and fulfillment to your life. Mindfulness meditation helps us be more present with those around us while learning to respond to all situations with insight and wisdom.

In this three hour workshop, you’ll walk away with:

  • An understanding of the benefits of mindfulness and the neuroscience behind it
  • Techniques on using mindfulness to improve your performance at work
  • Mental strategies that support a more mindful and resilient way of working and living
  • Instructions on mindfulness meditation (guided practices together) and a 10 minute practice you can use every day
  • Tips on bringing mindfulness into your daily life
  • An understanding of why ‘multi-tasking’ doesn’t work and what to do instead, and
  • Handouts and resources to help guide you on your onward journey

Research has shown that mindfulness meditation is associated with increases in focus and concentration, improved decision-making, better sleep and life satisfaction as well as reduced feelings of stress, anxiety and depression.

The session will be fun and interactive and include business relevant examples and practical tools to help you be best the version of yourself at work – and in life.
