Hidden benefits of mindfulness practice
The practice of mindfulness has been found to have a multitude of benefits. By becoming a mindfulness practitioner the personal benefit is the profound changes it can make to the way you think and feel about yourself.
Mindfulness practice helps us experience our thoughts, feelings, bodily sensations, and the immediate environment, without judgment and without attempting to change or control our experience. When mindfulness is practised in this way it changes our outlook on life and the people in it. The “insightful meditations” help mindfulness practitioners not only heal their mind and body but also improve relationships in their personal and professional life.
In organisations, the cost of staff absenteeism is enormous due to stress, depression and anxiety (SDA). Mindfulness can help us strengthen the work culture within an organization by promoting a greater degree of awareness. It can help employees and employers become more aware of their own emotions and reactions, helping them to recognize and respond in a more responsible way towards people and situations that trigger stress in the work environment.
This responsible behaviour can improve workplace culture and interactions. This in turn helps reduce employee absenteeism costs to employers and makes a significant economic contribution at both the business and national levels.
Reduced absenteeism helps businesses perform better, while the external benefits are reduced burdens on the local healthcare sector, improved contribution to the local economy as a result of improved earnings, and reduced benefit claims, all of which are positive outcomes.
