Our lives are full of distractions. Employees are often faced with the challenge of keeping a balance between family and work.  At the same time, companies are faced with the issue of keeping themselves balanced with growth, revenue and keeping employees engaged in their positions.

All companies want one thing – to concentrate on the big picture and strategy for future growth.  But, it comes back to focusing on how we can practice solutions to every day work-life challenges.  

Google was recently featured in an interview with Anderson Cooper.  Suggesting that by trying to do it all, we’re headed towards a societal exhaustion. Google has admitted to Mindful Meetings. These meetings give their employees more focus to be more productive.  The advantage is – it doesn’t cost anything and doesn’t take much time. 

Mindfulness is a scientifically validated and practical way to handle any kind of work environment with more presence, patience, insight and effectiveness. It’s the equivalent of going to the gym for the mind – if you want to be high performing you need to train the mental muscle. 

In Calgary, the Potential Project senior trainer Dorota Ulkowska, has three tips to exercise your mental muscle:

Dedicate 10 minutes within your work schedule to practice mindfulness.

Sit down, close your eyes and focus on your breathing without getting engaged in your thoughts. This simple exercise trains your brain to focus on one thing at a time.

Whenever your mind gets involved in a thought, come back to the focus on your breath. Every time your mind gets distracted it’s an opportunity to train your brain!

Starting with a simple, yet powerful training routine will help you be more kind, creative, productive, happier and healthier.  Ulkowska explains through corporate based mindfulness training, people learn how to become more effective and productive, while reducing their stress levels significantly.

Dorota Ulkowska resides in Calgary and is available to discuss the impact of mindful training for business owners looking to increase their employees potential.
