3 guided meditations to boost morale at work on a Monday

Guided meditation is the easiest way to welcome mindfulness into your life for more success, happiness and calm. 

Introducing guided meditations into workplaces has a positive effects on employees' mental health. Think it's not your business? Mental health is everyone's business with staff absenteeism due to stress and anxiety costing business billions.

Mindfulness meditation is a clinically proven technique to help staff manage stress, improve productivity and achieve a good work-life balance, because work life balance and wellbeing is not just about flexible work schedules and office dogs.

Some people lack the tools and skills to be able to achieve balance at work. Research shows that mindfulness can help staff take a pre-emptive approach to managing their mental health, stress and their emotions in the workplace.

Every dollar spent supporting staff with mental health issues yields a 230% return in improved productivity.

But good leaders don't just care about productivity, they care about people.
Staff are an organisation's most precious asset and supporting them through mental health issues will keep them engaged.
