October 18: Integrating Mindfulness into Your Work/Life
What do the Chicago Bulls, LA Lakers, Google, CNN’s Anderson Cooper, ABC’s Dan Harris, congressman Tim Ryan and thousands of doctors, lawyers, teachers and other professionals around the globe have in common? They all practice mindfulness to manage stress and improve focus, resilience, optimism, complex thinking and problem solving.
Register for the Medway Business Council’s Program on October 18 from 5:00-7:00pm hosted by Charles River Bank at 70 Main Street, Medway to learn how mindfulness can reduce physical and psychological symptoms of stress, enhancing self-care and the ability to meet the inherent complexities of work and everyday life.
Mindfulness has begun to transform the workplace and people’s lives worldwide. According to the Harvard Business Review, “Mindfulness should no longer be considered a ‘nice-to-have’ for executives. It’s a must-have: a way to keep our brains healthy, to support self-regulation and effective decision-making capabilities, and to protect ourselves from toxic stress.” Companies such as Google, General Mills, Reebok, Target, Ford and Aetna all offer mindfulness training to employees.
Attendees will try some short mindfulness practices, and leave the program with simple techniques for decreasing stress and integrating mindfulness into your work and life.
Our speaker is Brenda Fingold, Manager of Community and Corporate Programs and a teacher in the Stress Reduction Clinic at the Center for Mindfulness at the University of Massachusetts Medical School. The Internationally acclaimed Center for Mindfulness is a leader in mindfulness-based stress reduction and its programs are considered the “gold standard” for stress reduction and the improvement of health and well-being. Brenda has spent the last 15 years studying and teaching mindfulness and other workplace wellness programs. Her intention is to help people thrive in and sustain a long and satisfying life and career, and is pleased to speak with the Medway Business Council community.
Refreshments and light fare will be served. The event will start with registration and short networking from 5:00-5:30pm, followed by the program, which will last until approximately 7:00 pm. This event is open to all businesses in the Medway area, and the cost is $20 per person for non-members; $15 for members. If your business is not a member of the Medway Business Council, this event is the best time to consider joining.
