Did you know that around 70% of illness is stress related?! Creating a culture of ‘corporate calm’ at your place of work using meditation can not only help you and your employees improve job satisfaction, it can help reduce costs such as stress related illness absenteeism and insurance premiums.

Research is showing that a regular meditation practise of just 10 minutes each day can bring about amazing and noticeable differences in individuals, teams and overall business success.
Having your team to spend a portion of their work day closing their eyes on purpose could be the key to turning your business around in many more ways than just getting a little peace and quiet.
Below are 15 great reasons why a ‘corporate calm’ culture in your workplace can make the difference between being a business that just makes ends meet, and having a truly sensational, sustainable business that is in it for the long term.
Meditation increases oxygen to the brain, which means better focus, clearer thinking, better memory and better reasoning skills.
Increases blood flow to the muscles resulting in greater physical stamina to keep up with the rigours of a busy business life, with energy to spare.
Calms the nervous system resulting in ‘less stress’. Your body does not enter the fight/flight response that induces adrenaline and cortisol and diminishes use of other ‘happy’ hormones such as serotonin and dopamine.
Lowers respiration, heart rate and blood pressure for more sustainable health.
Meditation creates self-aware individuals leading to conscious communication in the workplace and improved teamwork.
Develops ‘emotional intelligence’ resulting in a more balanced and harmonious workplace.
Prevents and manages panic attacks, anxiety, depression and stress.
Enhances learning capacity and mental processing speed and accuracy so meditators work smarter, not harder, and get more done!
Complex problem solving is improved as meditators learn to use more areas of the brain, bringing ‘outside the square’ creative thinking to difficult issues.
Meditators get better quality sleep as thoughts are let go and the body dives into theta and delta realms where optimal cell regeneration occurs.
A mindful approach to conflict allows for better communication, less ‘reactivity’ and less stress during conflict or high stress periods.
Develops desirable personal characteristics such as authenticity, willpower, inner strength, tenacity, empathy, compassion and patience (of course many more!).
Reduces physical pain, particularly in chronic conditions, and increases vitality.
Boosts the immune system allowing for less ‘sick days’.
Removes mental obstructions that prevent individuals from personal, business and lifestyle success, making choices and adjustments easier to identify.
