What are the benefits of mindfulness sessions at the workplace?
STRESS REDUCTION | BURN-OUT PROTECTION | BETTER WORK | INNER STILLNESS AND CREATIVITY | ENERGIZED, REFRESHED, CENTERED

STRESS REDUCTION

“I don’t need help doing the actual work.  It’s managing the stress, expectations, self-doubt that is ultimately the hardest part.  The sessions help me thrive here.”

“When I get stressed, I can go into that place of our sessions and energy work and calm myself with some of the tools you’ve given us.”

“It’s easy to get caught up in the chaos of this environment.  Having a tiny break from that and focusing on breathing and the body and spirit allows me to be clearer and more mindful of the people I’m working with throughout the rest of the day.”

“Work gets stressful.  Having these sessions goes right at the heart of the problem.”

BURN-OUT PROTECTION

“Too many people leave from getting “burned out” by the demands of the work here.  I think the mindfulness addition into the office can only be a positive to the stress of work.”

“If all agencies had a monk they’d be able to keep top creatives in house and not burn them out.”

If we’re burnt out at work, we’ll be burnt out in our productivity and creativity.”

BETTER WORK

“Great work doesn’t come from a lot of work or fast work.  It comes from smart work.  When you stop and focus, things get clearer.”

“What agency wouldn’t want their employees working with more clarity, vision and collaboration?  That’s exactly what Greg’s Mindfulness sessions accomplish.  Depending on when the seminar occurs in our busy 10-15 hour day, we find time to drop what we’re doing and spend 30 minutes pressing the ‘reset button’ on our minds.  The work here is very intense and fast paced.  This time of mindfulness with Greg lets our radioactive minds cool down long enough to gain a sense of inner peace and clarity.”

“If we are not careful, we all can easily tip from hard-work and cutting edge excellence to a more destructive (for ourselves and others) competitiveness and aggression.  This is the benefit – bringing us back to a place where we can be more grounded.  It makes us better, the people around us better, and I can only assume that therefore it makes the work better.”

“The sessions allow you to step away from the desk and give you the opportunity get guided help in focusing your energy to do creative, positive things.”

“Throughout the rest of the day, all attendees I talk to later remain rejuvenated.  These sessions translate into happier, clear-minded employees who can handle the stresses and sometimes chaos of this workplace with more ease, grace and effectiveness.”

“It’s great.  I wish some of the sessions were mandatory.  Giving our bodies and minds some time off keeps us thinking better and we come up with better ideas.”

“Being more calm, more caring, producing less stress and trying to eat better has made work much easier, obviously.”

INNER STILLNESS AND CREATIVITY

“Sometimes my best ideas come from being still or silent.”

“The more mindful we are, the more we are conscious of how our interactions affect others.  In this industry, we get so little silence and stillness, even at night, sometimes.  This allows us to quiet our minds and focus our energies better.”

“This agency lives off its creativity and constant thinking.  Silence and stillness help in increasing productivity and making a better use of our brains.  Creativity is not something that sparks out of huge meetings and constant craziness.”

ENERGIZED, REFRESHED, CENTERED

“Prior to joining the mindfulness sessions I was kind of weary at first because it felt like my mind was “all over the place”.  After a Tuesday Mindfulness session, I had this energy in my body to go back to my desk and work focused.”

“After the session I am able to apply the lessons into the workday.  For example, when I start to get frustrated or feel antsy, I will now take a moment do some stretches or walk outside and enjoy the weather as opposed to let the stress build up.  Then I come back to my work refreshed and happier.”

“My job has the tendency to create ‘over-thinking’ in the rest of my life.  These sessions help bring me back to a clear center and dissolve any unhealthy thought habits.”

“It’s like somebody shot refreshment into my head–like coming off a three-week vacation.”

“When you are working on a project at 4:40am, it is helpful to have a few tools to help center oneself and to calm one’s mind.  It also helps in not losing one’s mind.”
