"Everyone’s got basically a hurricane going on in their mind”
Pandit Dasa, a mindful expert explains how important it is for companies to invest in mindfulness.
"We’re always running around...We’re trying to eat our sandwich while driving, [and] listening to our messages on the phone and planning something else…” he explains. “How are we going to have time to do one thing properly? We’re not.”
Being more mindful and present can improve performance in the workplace. It helps clear our mind and focus on the tasks that need to be done.
Companies like Intel, Google, Keuring Green Mountain, General Mills, and Aetna have implemented programs to enhance mindfulness in the workplace. They understand how beneficial it is to invest in wellness programs.
They invest in these programs because being more mindful can help:

What do the CEOs and Chief Human Resources Officers of Lahey Health, GBMC HealthCare Systems and Cape Fear Valley Health System have to say about creating a healthy workforce? Believe it or not changing health often means changing organizational and workplace culture.
$500 billion is siphoned off from the U.S. economy because of workplace stress costs. That's no small drop in the bucket. Research from Anna Nyberg of the Karolinksa Institute illustrates just how strong the link is between leadership stress behaviors and heart disease. Stress-producing leadership staff are literally impacting the heart health and cardiac disorders of themselves and other staff.
Besides these high health care costs related to a stressful work environment, disengagement is another leading cause of lost profit due to stress. Feeling as though your ideas, efforts and presence are valued, secure, supported, and respected goes a long way to reduce this. However, this sense of being valued is almost non-existent in high-stress work cultures with low or no investments in employee health.
So... INVEST in the health of your workplace. Create a culture of care. This investment will cause employees to invest in themselves. This new health-invested culture of your office can absolutely cause the shift of having a merely coffee-sustained zombie staff to healthy and happy employees who value their health and become more productive as a result. A health-focused work culture even creates more loyalty among staff as they feel more valued and are likely to make more positive social connections in the workplace.
We suggest starting with one of the most cost effective wellness options: chair massage! Even if you normally only offer this on Administrative Assistant Day or have never tried it before, employee health clearly worth investing in regularly.
