Stress in our lives is an inevitable reality.
Life never stays the same and change introduces stress.
Especially in the workplace.
Large workloads, looming deadlines, the perception that we need to be available 24/7 creates a sustained pressure cooker environment that is the current state of many corporate cultures. This has a direct impact on productivity and employee satisfaction.
As such, we find more and more companies incorporating mindfulness and meditation offerings in their wellness programming. It is the fastest growing health trend in America.
Practicing mindfulness has been proven to reduce anxiety and depression, increase attention span, lower blood pressure, heighten awareness of addictive habits and improve sleep quality.
We believe mental health is just as important as physical health and have incorporated a beautiful suite of mindfulness practices written by Dr. Arnold Kozak from the University of Vermont into our latest release of the Motivation Alliance.
With the inherent flexibility found in the Motivation Alliance, program administrators can turn this feature on or off for their populations as desired. If turned on, participants can access these practices from the left menu in their platform at any time. With mobile access, users can meditate at work, home or on-the-go.
