Health and Wellness in the workplace is a rising trend. The habits that started with start-ups are now becoming increasingly mainstream, and the worlds largest and most innovative companies are including yoga, meditation, organic food, ongoing learning, art and play in their schedules and benefit packages.
Research is showing time and time again that these mindfulness practices have a direct positive impact on productivity. In fact, "according to the American Psychological Association (APA), mindfulness brought about by activities such as yoga, meditation, or tai chi improves cognition, strengthens communication skills, sharpens focus, reduces stress levels and helps negate fear."
Health and mindfulness in the workplace is a common ground for the baby-boomer generation and millenials alike. In the past, spirituality and health were looked over by businesses. But the fast paced, high stress, uber-connected business culture is losing popularity fast and is being replaced by an increasingly health and environmentally conscious corporate culture. Offering healthy, organic, gluten free options in cafeterias, free yoga or meditation classes and lunch times and allowing employees to work from home a few days a week, thus reducing their carbon footprint are becoming standard in many larger organizations.
This trend towards wellness also includes "mindful meetings". Corporate retreats promoting wellness and mindfulness are all the rage. The Costa Rica Yoga Spa, in Nosara, Costa Rica is a superb location for a small to medium size organization to hold a mindful meeting or corporate retreat:
