Meditation is renowned for being able to reduce stress levels, improve focus, concentration and clarity, and helps to improve resilience, overall mental health and a greater level of work satisfaction. Practised for over 2,500 years, meditation allows an individual to use mindfulness to relax and achieve a mentally calmer state.
But did you know that meditation can also be used to actually improve your business sales and profit?
Why should you teach your staff to mindfully meditate?
Meditation lowers stress levels
It is inevitable that all employees will feel levels of stress at some point in their job. Mindful meditation allows an individual to relax and focus on creating a calm mind, lowering stress levels and allowing them to think more clearly when working on a task or project. Lowering an employee’s stress levels will also reduce the risk of sickness absence within the workplace.
Meditation helps to balance our emotions
By lowering stress levels, it is more likely that your employees will experience a better balance of emotions within the workplace. Better communication within team members and better customer service will inevitably follow.
Meditation improves resilience
Resilience is necessary in any workplace, particularly during busy times of the day, month and year. For more information about resilience, visit our blog post here. Meditation is effective at being able to improve individuals’ resilience levels, allowing them to ‘bounce back’ when faced with seeming failures or losses in their job.
Meditation improves concentration, focus and productivity
By meditating mindfully, the calmer and more focused mental state is thought to boost productivity levels. With so much to do it is easy to become overwhelmed and therefore do very little. Meditation allows the mind to calm, allowing an employee to take a step back and prioritise. It also improves concentration and focus, allowing for a higher level of productivity.
