Mindfulness is increasingly being offered to employees as a means of supporting their health and wellbeing.
Over the past five years the meditation practice known as mindfulness, has gone global. A search on Amazon highlights the extent of its reach, throwing up around 20,000 mindfulness titles. And while it is championed by lots of public figures, it is much more than a celebrity health fad;
- it’s available as a treatment from the NHS
- there are MSc. courses in mindfulness
- there’s even a government endorsed policy institute, the Mindfulness Initiative, which is exploring how it can benefit society more widely.
Mindfulness can be a highly effective component of organisational wellbeing strategies.
