International Mindfulness Meditation Training for Work Life Balance & Stress Management 2019.

  

Have you ever felt overwhelmed at Work? Too many tasks and deadlines that keep you on the roll? Are you often plagued with the feeling of being too busy, overwhelmed, or stressed? 


Do you have trouble finding time to do the things you really want and need to do? If you answered yes to these questions, you may need a lesson or two in Work life balance. We have different ways to relate to stress at work or school. I invite you to ask yourself;


How many hours each week do you usually spend at work/university or with family/friends having fun, relaxing, or self-reflecting?

• How many hours do you spend texting, tweeting, emailing, posting to social media, and browsing the net or apps?

• Are you truly present in each moment as life unfolds?

• Do you feel deeply fulfilled, joyful, and intimately in love with your life?


Overloaded schedules, and high demands often keep us incredibly busy and stressed. It seems paradoxical to meet both the demands and goals of our work and personal life. To balance our expectations, our career goals, while also living a deeply fulfilling and happy life can be challenging. Specifically, women suffer from those competing demands. To keep us healthy and in the “green zone” depends how we relate to stress and life as a whole. 

 

We now spend an average of 47 hours a week at our jobs, and being digitally connected 24-7 can make us feel like we never quite get to leave. With emails, mobile phones, the web, and texting, work has completely bled into our home lives. How can we bring life back into balance without sacrificing success in the increasingly demanding workplace? Can practicing Mindful Meditation help?


Mindfulness is the concept of taking control of ourselves, including our minds and bodies with respect to our surroundings, to become more aware of our thoughts, feelings and experiences and bring us back into the present moment.


Regular mindfulness and meditation practice enables you to become less reactive and more adaptable to pressure. It also helps to reduce stress. In other words, you won’t be reacting to issues blindly as they arise; you’ll learn to slow down, prioritize, and find optimal solutions. Less stress means you’ll actually enjoy that extra time, not spend it worrying about what’s going on back at the office.


 Meditation helps restore us to equilibrium, which is the natural state of human existence. This is the secret to achieving a "work-life-family balance."


JOIN US this April 27, 2019 at the University of St. Michael's University College in the University of Toronto as we learn to balance between work and our lives.
