Introduce wellbeing and mindfulness and how they’re related

Gain experiential understanding of mindfulness – what it is to be present in the moment
Successful employees are susceptible to vulnerabilities that come about because of their success.
Your wellbeing is your own responsibility
Mindfulness is a critical skill in supporting wellbeing
It’s not good enough to just know about mindfulness, you have to experience and practice it.
Interactively introduce characteristics of successful employees (well-educated, self-motivated, competitive, etc.) and show how this leads to vulnerabilities (focus on control, winning & dominance, over-identifying with goals, etc.) and how the mind affects how we experience our work-lives (e.g. not being able to sleep)
Interactively identify (individual/general) sources of anxiety/stress (in the workplace)
Introduce concept & characteristics of wellbeing and why aforementioned vulnerabilities can lead to low sense of wellbeing
Introduce concept of mindfulness. Working with our concentration and awareness to improve our day-to-day experience of our work lives, setting intention for compassion/kindness and gentleness towards others and ourselves, allowing and accepting things as they are. It’s like a workout for your mind with effects akin to a physical workout in the gym.
Experiential practices: Counting/following the breath mindfulness practice; body-scan standing up.
