Mindfulness is key to mental wellbeing—both at home and at work. Incorporating mindfulness at work can help you experience better concentration, more creativity, and decreased stress, among other benefits.
Prioritizing your mental health and physical wellbeing at work can help you have a more satisfying, enjoyable, and successful experience. Consider using mindfulness at work as a tool to stay present and engaged in your workday while supporting your overall health.
A form of mental training, mindfulness is the practice of maintaining a nonjudgmental state of awareness of your thoughts, emotions, or experiences in the present moment. This versatile tool can be used to lower the body’s stress response.
The benefits of practicing mindfulness include the following:
In the workplace, these benefits of mindfulness can translate into a stronger ability to focus, more creative solutions to problem-solving, more authentic connections, and better leadership skills. Additionally, taking regular breaks throughout the workday can help prevent fatigue and burnout while boosting productivity by improving motivation and increasing energy.
Mindfulness practice can be done anytime and anywhere—even just one minute at a time! Engage your five sense to become more present and mindful during the workday, and explore our other workday wellness tips.
