We promote and encourage clients to adopt a mindfulness practice for healthy employees and happier workplaces. It’s a practice our Director, Gina Buckney, has adopted for over a decade to help her navigate the pressures and stress of a busy lifestyle and career expectations, so we were delighted to see the feature in the popular fortnightly magazine Yours. The magazine interviewed Gina to share her expertise and knowledge on the subject to help readers understand more about the practice.
Reduce 2023 stress with a mindfulness practice
As January can be a difficult month for many people following the highs of the festive period and for the employed, the extra long wait for the next wage to come through, we think the release of this article is perfect timing for people who might be struggling with stress, pressure or anxiety.
“If you’re looking for a New Year resolution to improve your mental and physical health, making mindfulness a habit is a great option,” writes Lizzie Denning.
The science proves a regular mindfulness practice is a performance enhancing tool
As we at Your People Power have come to learn more about the scientific benefits through our studies and research with leading Universities in the US, we understand that adopting and embedding these activities into the workplace can have profound effects on employee wellbeing and, subsequently, performance, positively impacting bottom lines for those corporations who recognise this as a core capability.
” A Meditation Mindfulness Practice positively impacts the brain, and studies show that areas and structures of the brain transform through regular practice. These areas are responsible for memory and focus, so mindfulness can help preserve and improve memory and increase attention span and focus,” says Gina Buckney.
In the article, Gina also explains how to practice a simple mindfulness exercise whilst enjoying a cup of tea.
