About the event
**This event is only for Department of Justice team members**
Want to learn some simple strategies to help you and your team manage stress & overwhelm & reconnect to your breath, a sense of calm and inner quiet? Increase productivity, trust and connection within your team? Decrease anxiety and depression while increasing creativity and memory? A Mindfulness course with Michelle will involve elements of Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) training along with simple tools & daily practices that can transform your life.
Here’s the basics...
*WHY: Because the biggest OH&S risk for office workers is not trips & falls - it's STRESS and most of us spend more time at work than anywhere else. Stress, overwhelm and disconnection are killing us, damaging our familIes, relationships and hurting our souls. (I know through personal experience and after working with hundreds of clients that the practices you'll learn work quickly to produce noticeable results and I'm committed to sharing this with as many people as possible!!)
*WHERE: Department of Justice
*WHEN: Weekly for 5 weeks
*INVESTMENT: $40 pp for 5 week series
*WHAT: A combination of Mindfulness & Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction practices, mindful movement, gratitude, coaching and essential oils as appropriate.
*You'll learn how to incorporate simple strategies & practices into your day to day life that will offer noticeable results with regular practice.
“Neuroscientists have found that meditators shift their brain activity to different areas of the cortex…This mental shift decreases the negative effects of stress, mild depression and anxiety. …The researchers found that the meditators showed a pronounced shift in activity to the left frontal lobe. In other words, they were calmer and happier than before.” – Psychology Today
What can you expect if you adopt a regular mindfulness practice?
*Improves decision making & ability to focus
*Reduces drug and alcohol abuse
*Helps prevent heart disease
*Lowers blood pressure
*Reduces chronic pain
(The Resilience Project 2018)
Regular, long-term practice will allow our brain to ‘rewire’ itself so that the neural pathways that make us calmer and less reactive are strengthened and used more frequently.
Increased self-awareness will also support rational & considered decision making, rather than reactive decisions based on anger, fear or stress. (Mindfulness Works Australia)
