Today’s work takes us away from the present: it puts us in loops of continuous flow, obedience to processes and projection into a schedule to be kept. Everything around us is designed to grab our attention: reminders, email and messenger notifications, spam, adverts, all kinds of ring tones. Mindfulness reduces stress, improves concentration and productivity, and promotes a better work-life balance.
Focus on what matters’ is an 8-week introductory programme in mindfulness meditation based on the MBSR (Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction) programme and adapted to the world of corporate work. The group sessions provide a gradual introduction to meditation and enable participants to practise it in a variety of ways, including sitting, yoga movements, walking and informal practice. Concrete themes from everyday life at work are addressed: setting objectives, planning, stress, communication, managing e-mails, meetings, etc.
