Building Mindfulness into the Workplace
Happy, healthy employees are better employees.
Adopting a comprehensive wellness program is better for both companies and for employees: Johnson & Johnson leaders estimate that their comprehensive wellness programs have cumulatively saved the company $250 million on health care costs from 2000 to 2010, according to the Harvard Business Review. A key element of successful, comprehensive wellness programs is mindfulness.
One of the best ways to encourage your employees to work and live mindfully is to provide them with opportunities to practice exercises like meditation and yoga.
Your employees’ wellness can also be improved by practicing mindfulness through yoga. Yoga can help employees reduce stress, improve fitness, and even manage chronic conditions, according to the Mayo Clinic.
Starting with pain awareness is an important first step, but empowering employees to address their pain points is the key. Providing employees with the ability to make mindful choices introduces an element of trust into your office space.

What user's are saying about us:
I LOVE my fluidstance board! I cannot emphasize that enough. I rock and rotate all day long. I am continually moving while on the board and thus reduce the pain I was feeling in my knees and hips all the time.
