Practicing Mindfulness At Work

We think a million thoughts a day but do we know what our next thought is going to be? We don't. We seem to be powerless in controlling what appears in our minds. Yet, these thoughts in our minds play an integral role in the way we view ourselves and the world around us.

Mindfulness is increasingly becoming relevant for employees in the corporate world. According to the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (1999), about one-third of workers experience high levels of stress. Work stress has been identified as a major cause of employee turnover and burnout and has been linked to many physical and psychological complaints, including headaches, higher incidence of cardiovascular disease, and increased health insurance claims (Schnall, Dobson, & Rosskam, 2009)In an increasingly turbulent world where external stimuli are creating enormous stress in us, mindfulness practices can come in handy to help us stay healthy, resilient and happy. In this upcoming webinar, Adesh Goyal, CHRO of Tata Communications Ltd. and Rajiv Jayaraman, CEO of KNOLSKAPE bring to sharp focus the need for leaders and employees to practice mindfulness in the workplace.
