Mindfulness

Mindfulness is the art of being present. 

According to Jon Kabat-Zinn, the founder of the mindfulness-based stress reduction program, being mindful is “paying attention in a particular way: on purpose, in the present moment, and non-judgmentally.” Through mindfulness, you are able to be aware of where you are and what you are doing and not be overly reactive or overwhelmed by what is going on around us.  All too often we get caught up in the daily stress of life, making you less productive, less successful, and ultimately less happy.   

Mindfulness Book Club

Join your colleagues every Wednesday to discuss the book Mindfulness: An Eight-Week Plan for Finding Peace in a Frantic World by Mark Williams and Danny Penman. 

You will uncover “simple yet powerful practices” to help promote happiness and break the cycle of anxiety, stress, unhappiness, and exhaustion.

Each week, you will discuss a different chapter, share experiences, and develop key takeaways that you can incorporate into your daily professional and personal lives to promote well-being.

Please purchase your own individual copy of the book and read the first chapter by the June 27th meeting. The book is available at a number of retailers.
