LET US GIVE YOU A FEW GOOD REASON "WHY"
LET THE FACTS SPEAK FOR THEMSELVES
“Various research studies have estimated the costs of work-related stress around the world: $650 billion in Europe, $3.9 billion in Australia, $2-8 billion Canada, and $300 billion in the United States. The consequences of employee disengagement are particularly damaging. Studies have found that disengaged employees are less productive, more likely to steal from their company, negatively influence their coworkers, miss more workdays, and drive customers away.”
“The implications of mindfulness on stress relief are directly applicable to business and productivity, and have already been documented. By incorporating a six-week course on mindfulness and cognitive behavioral training, Transport for London reported 71% fewer absentee days due to stress, anxiety, or depression, and 50% fewer absences overall. The participants also reported improvements in their relationships (80%), the ability to relax more easily (79%), better sleep patterns (64%), and more happiness at work (54%).”
“Today, Google offers seven different types of meditation classes to choose from. This includes attention training, self-knowledge and self-mastery, and building mindful mental habits.” (…) “The work environment at Facebook is designed to encourage calmness and creativity. Through weekly in-house meditation sessions and “No Meeting Wednesdays”, the company aims to boost employee morale. Facebook recognizes that happier employees are healthier, more collaborative, and produce better ideas.”
Now, a new study confirms that yoga does just that. The study, published in Occupational Medicine, reviewed the results of 13 trials of 1,297 employees. Some employees had been assigned to workplace yoga programs and others were part of a control group. During the study, yoga didn’t seem to affect heart health, but it did positively affect mental health and stress reduction.
