Job stress costs American businesses over $300 billion dollars a year. Do you know what it’s costing you in sick days, turnover, morale, missed deadlines and mistakes?
The practice of mindfulness is a critical part of stress reduction and overall wellness because it helps you understand, tolerate, and deal with your emotions in healthy ways.
Mindfulness is a simple concept—the practice of being aware of your experiences in the present moment. However, in our fast-paced, multi-tasking and stress-filled daily lives we seem to think we don’t have time to be present. We are too busy rehashing the past or nexting to the future, when mindfulness is what we need most!
Stress reduction and mindfulness don’t just make us happier and healthier, they’re a proven competitive edge that affects your bottom line:
- Reduce costs of employee turnover 46%
- Reduce costs of sick leave 19%
- Increase performance and productivity 12%
- Spend 40% more time focused on tasks and feel energized 65% more of the time
- Retain employees twice as long
