What Beth Wallace is Passionate About
Mindfulness : A Pathway To Resilience
Mindfulness is an excellent antidote to the stresses of modern times. It invites us to stop, breathe, observe, and connect with one’s inner experience. There are many ways to bring mindfulness into one’s life, such as meditation, yoga, art, or time in nature. Mindfulness can be trained systematically, and can be implemented in daily life, by people of any age, profession or background. Mindfulness at work can aid in decision making, help open channels of communication, and lower workplace stress.
Mindfulness practice supports resiliency — the ability to return to peak performance again and again, and is now scientifically validated as a means of working with our thoughts and emotions – a form of ‘brain fitness.’
Building on evidence-based scientific research, participants gain insight into the benefits of Mindfulness. Content includes: stress reduction, increased productivity, and a means for coming back to a presence of natural strength and authenticity, while managing the realities of a work setting. Participants learn practical tools and approaches they can begin to apply in their day to day life both in the workplace and at home that will lower stress, and enhance clarity and decision making.
