Mindful Wellness
Since 2012, Kate has also worked closely with strategic partners from Mindfulness at Work, to deliver a series of programmes called “Mindful Wellness”.
The concept of Mindfulness is a researched based approach to Health originally developed from Eastern philosophies principally by Jon Kabat Zinn at The Massachusets Stress Reduction clinic in the 1970’s. His team have collected compelling data over many years and on-going studies have shown that a Mindful approach to Wellness in the Workplace has a dramatic influence on working life.
The “Mindful Wellness” programmes dynamically increase the resilience of staff in terms of coping with stress and the impact of heavy work loads and long hours. We have developed programmes for:
- Mindfulness Training – resilience, stress reduction, focus
- Mindful Nutrition – a Foundation for Health and Wellness – Optimal performance through “strategic eating”
- Mindful Movement – exercise, wellbeing, stamina, and fitness
