Join the ‘mindful revolution’
Offering mindfulness training to all employees within the organization
Revolution: a fundamental change in the way of thinking about or visualizing something: a change of paradigm (Merriam-Webster)
Mindfulness practice has great potential to revolutionize the way we think about and manage our well-being. Mindfulness can help individuals manage their attention and focus their minds with intention. Studies have shown that practicing mindfulness, even for just a few weeks, can bring a variety of lasting physical, psychological, and social benefits. Learning to be mindful has many benefits at work, including decreases in stress levels, emotional exhaustion and multi-tasking and improvements in:
- quality of life
- physical & mental energy and wellbeing
- work life balance
- focus & concentration
- job performance
- problem solving
- job satisfaction
- ethical decision making
- creativity & innovation
The Healthy Workplace Initiative is excited to offer online mindfulness training to all Saskatoon Health Region employees and their buddies to support mental health, improve resilience and enhance workplace wellness with the launch of the evidence-based 30 Day Mindfulness Challenge.
The 30 Day Mindfulness Challenge has been used at the Mental Health Commission of Canada, UBC, WestJet, Coca-Cola, Harvard Law School and more because it’s proven by Sauder School of Business to lower stress, increase resilience, improve teamwork, and strengthen leadership skills. The Challenge also teaches ‘mindfulness-in-action’ so people don’t need to stop what they are doing to become calmer, present and focused, all of which leads to a safer work environment.
To register for the Challenge, complete the Mindfulness at Saskatoon Health Region form using your Saskatoon Health Region email address (once registered you can switch to a personal email address if you prefer) .
“The only time you ever have in which to learn anything or see anything or feel anything, or express any feeling or emotion, or respond to an event, or grow, or heal, is this moment, because this is the only moment any of us ever gets. You’re only here now; you’re only alive in this moment.”
