If mindfulness is understood and taught from a social perspective, it can give people an understanding of how their sense of self changes in different contexts.
It's not your fault
In the fast-paced world of high workloads and demanding deadlines, occupational burnout is a common experience. It can harm both our work performance and our physical and mental well-being. Left unattended to, it can lead to clinical anxiety, depression, and addictions. Burnout is not your fault; it is not something that an individual person should have to solve alone because so often it has systemic causes.
How can mindfulness training help you and your organisation?
The good news is that mindfulness-based interventions can offer an empowering way through. Research shows that an evidence-based mindfulness training can protect against "stress" turning into clinical problems like anxiety and depression. They do this this by reducing stress, enhancing a sense of agency, and increasing emotional literacy and therefore work relationships. They can enhance self-compassion, and boost overall job and life satisfaction. Incorporating mindfulness meditation programs into your organization's health initiatives can be a cost-effective way to improve the mental health of staff. We offer tailored programs to fit in with your needs and constraints of time and investment.
Personally you can access the training for yourself in the confidential MBSR group program that we offer Australia-wide and live online.
