Overview

I now have some useful tools to start using to be able to reboot my reaction to stressful situations and times when I feel overloaded. I will incorporate mindfulness sessions into my working day

- Course delegate

Do you feel you have barely enough time to get dressed, eat and go to work? Are you chronically busy? Recent research shows that short mindfulness sessions of just a few minutes can be just as effective as daily practices of 30 minutes or more. So if you’re stressed or struggling to get everything done, short and simple mindfulness is a useful on the spot tool to help you feel calmer and become more productive at work.

What's this course about?

This course introduces short mindfulness tools and techniques designed for busy professionals. It introduces you to both formal and informal mindfulness exercises that take between 1 and 10 minutes to practice. You will learn to use a range of short, practical 'on the spot' mindfulness tools and techniques that take between 1 and 3 minutes and can be practiced at your desk at work without anyone noticing.

What will you get out of it?

The tools and techniques in this course will help you to feel calmer, more productive and in control. Research demonstrates that mindfulness training can help you improve workplace productivity, relationships at work, resilience and well-being, and can produce positive outcomes with as little as 10 minutes practice a day.

After completing this course you will be able to

  • Define in everyday terms what mindfulness is and how it can benefit you at work
  • Describe some of the positive impacts that mindfulness has on your brain  
  • Identify different ways to develop mindfulness
  • Use new ways to deal with ‘busyness’
  • Apply short practical mindfulness tools and techniques to help you use mindfulness to:
    • manage strong emotions
    • maintain health and well-being
    • improve productivity
    • improve working relationships

Is this course for you?

This course is ideal for anyone who wants to achieve a higher level of personal effectiveness. A little knowledge of mindfulness would be beneficial, but it’s not essential as all the basics are covered.
