What exactly is mindfulness? It’s a mental state of your own awareness that’s achieved by calmly accepting your own feelings, thoughts and senses while being present. With work often being way too busy to be “present”, you may be wondering how you can fit something as small as being mindful one day per week into your busy schedule. You’re in luck, there’s a super easy way to be mindful without going out of your way…have meditation and mindfulness experts come to the office for an assist! There’s nothing like a guided meditation. Try it out!
Wellness challenges are an easy and fun way to bring out a friendly competitive spirit around the office. What’s great about a wellness challenge? Basically anything wellness related goes. Invite your coworkers to participate in a water consumption challenge, a breathing challenge, or even a gratitude challenge. Everyone reaps the benefit when your office is charged with positivity.
Seated yoga or as some call it chair yoga, has a great reputation for improving your focus and allowing you to de-stress with a specific routine of seated poses, breathing and stretching. Your instructor will educate your office on this routine that you can totally use later while sitting through that long conference call everyone has been trying to avoid. The benefits of yoga without having to leave the office AND without breaking a sweat? Yes, please!
Snacking around the office is inevitable. Since you’re bound to do it at one time or another, why not make sure it’s a healthy snack? It’s no secret that eating healthier is an energy booster, plus it allows your brain to operate with more clarity and at a higher level. Not to mention, incorporating antioxidant rich foods into your diet has all sorts of benefits. Healthy snacking doesn’t need to be boring either. You can easily enjoy a fruit salad, green apples with a little almond butter. Hey, what about getting creative with the fixings of a “make your own trail mix” bar in the breakroom? The possibilities are endless.
Chair massage is the O.G. of workplace wellness. With benefits like improving circulation, increasing productivity and relieving stress, it’s no wonder chair massage remains the most popular way to incorporate office wellness. Chair massage sessions can easily be scheduled between meetings, on lunch or other breaks in your work day because they are short and convenient. Chair massage can also be a great introduction to the therapeutic benefits of massage, making you more apt to schedule a much needed table massage. Your body will thank you when it’s operating at an optimum level of health.
