Mindfulness in the Modern Workplace - Working Well: Being Well

The sustainability movement led to a new awareness of how to design buildings to be more sustainable. But what are we doing for the occupant? How is their wellbeing? We live in a world where we are constantly connected, and the in-flow of information seems never-ending. The inability to disconnect is causing a dramatic increase in stress levels amongst workers today. The World Health Organization projects that 'techno-stress', the stress of constantly being on and overwhelmed by technology, will be one of the biggest health issues in the coming decade. To help people function at higher levels and feel refreshed we must design intentionally to achieve mindfulness in the workplace.  

Key Takeaways:

  • Understand the issues and factors that are impacting mindfulness, health and well-being today.
  • Review the environmental practices, guidelines and options used to encourage movement and improve wellbeing in the workplace.
  • Discuss strategies that will lead to improving mindfulness in the workplace to increase concentration, focus, engagement and productivity.
