What is Mindfulness?

Mindfulness is simply knowing what is happening in your mind, activities and environment, while it is happening, giving you the space to respond creatively rather than react habitually to whatever comes your way.

It is typically cultivated through short meditations and daily life exercises that build the capacity to ‘attend to’ whatever is happening in ways that are well-balanced.


What Can Mindfulness Do for Employees and Teams?

Mindfulness helps us to “show up” as fully as possible, bringing as much of ourselves as possible to our work. This includes our energy, skills, ideas, enthusiasm, insights and creativity. In order to do that, we first have to know ourselves, what makes us tick, and the potential we all have to change and grow. This is where Mindfulness helps.

The Breathworks programme supports people to develop this essential kind of self-awareness and then learn how to apply that awareness in the work environment. We represent this process through interlocking cogs, showing how through mindfulness, individuals, teams and work cultures can mutually enhance each other, so that positive outcomes deepen over time.
