Do you feel overloaded with impressions, feelings and thoughts even when relaxing at home?
Do you sometimes have a hard time concentrating and ask yourself where the time went?
How is your sleep?
As we face big challenges in our lives – e.g. frequent and fast changes in organizations, energy draining meetings, excessive Multi-Tasking, travelling itineraries etc. we need more and more support to train our minds for more resilience and composure.
One way to recuperate ourselves in the midst of a buzzing world and come back to being more human again is practicing mindfulness.
Mindfulness is not an outside skill, but an innate human capacity for connecting to the NOW. We refresh ourselves by being right here – moment by moment – regardless the cirumstances. Being connected to the present moment enhances the experience of flow, energy and wakefulness.
It can be a pathway out of auto-pilot into the sparkling present!
A Mindfulness Training includes background information on the neurophysiology of mindfulness and the various practices, formal and informal (see below under Workplace Settings).
Our attention directly affects the neural activity of our brain.
The architecture of our brain is influenced by how we use our mind.
The mind is able to change the brain (neuroplasticity).
The blood flow of the brain changes and metabolic alterations associated can be measured. Scientists can see the brain in action, even if most of them agree that the mind is not merely the brain…
More than 5000 studies explored the effects of meditation.
It has been shown that Mindfulness Trainings that take place at the work place promote a more satisfying and concentrated work-life with a new sense of connectedness to oneself, to what one is doing and to one`s environment. Thereby as people are using their attention more effectively better results at the workplace are noticed.
Some conclusive results:
1) Health: When body and mind synchronize in Mind Training, there are effects on the physical health:
2) Cognitive skills: Mindfulness is the basis for all higher cognitive abilities:
3) Mental health: Mindfulness strengthens our mental resilience:

Practicing mindfulness meditation on a regular basis helps me to stay more calm in the midst of challenging situations. I am leading meetings that require high attention and presence in a more relaxed way. This has a positive impact on our team. I feel strenghtened in my self- and social competence

Fears, issues ahead, problems seem to be much lighter. I have a feeling of empowerment. I am better prepared to cope with upcoming issues. I am mastering my time more.

Mindfulness meditation already has a regenerating effect after 5-10 minutes for me. I use mindfulness also while running: sensing my feet touching the floor or tracking my breath. These tiny „vacations“ from thinking are very beneficial. Mindfulness helps to clear my mind.

The training takes place at the work place, within the company. This setting helps people integrate the new skills much faster than outside the workplace.
