Calming Down #1: How Both You and Your Clients Can Benefit from Workplace Mindfulness
Our work lives are full of demands and tasks that can make us feel stressed—and not just a little, but a lot. According to research, around 40% of the US workforce report feeling significant stress in the workplace. This stress has adverse effects our health and personal well-being, not to mention our performance and productivity.
One antidote is to cultivate a mindfulness practice in the workplace. For those of us who work with children, youth, and families, mindfulness practice is a two-fer, because we can introduce and support these same practices with our clients.
This webinar will focus on teaching a few mindfulness practices that will help you manage your own stress in your daily work, and that you can teach to your children, youth and families.
Learn several mindfulness activities and why they work.
Practice and reflect on the mindfulness activities and discuss how you might implement them in your workplace.
Learn practical ways to teach these mindfulness activities to the children and youth with whom you work
