MindWell-U is pleased to make a number of mental health resources available to you and your workplace.
After entering your details below, feel free to download, share and discuss the materials below.
In the video below, MindWell-U's Co-Founder and Chief Training Officer, Dr. Geoff Soloway, PhD. discusses the relationship between mindfulness and mental health.
This video explains the benefits of mindfulness and introduces people to "Take 5", MindWell-U's core mindfulness practice that's woven throughout the 30 Day Mindfulness Challenge in order to make Take 5 a habit.
Consider sharing the video with employees, playing before a team meeting or including in your mental health initiatives.
Included in the Challenge is a series of infographics which teach participants, among other things, how to hard wire happiness, get off 'Thought Trains' and be mindful in the middle of whatever they're doing. The Challenge teaches something called 'mindfulness-in-action'... no dark rooms, scented candles or yoga mats required!
These infographics could be shared with employees in a presentation, in print or on your intranet site. You could also release them one at a time or as a set. HINT: involve management in the distribution of these in order to send a clear message to employees that mental health is supported by the organization.
Take 5 Podcast
Participants in the Challenge and their buddies (everyone who takes the 30 Day Mindfulness Challenge gets to include a buddy from outside the organization at no cost) are encouraged to listen to this Take 5 podcast and learn the steps so they can be present and mindful no matter what they are doing (in a meeting, commuting to work, having a difficult conversation, etc.).
Share this 3 min podcast with your leaders and managers and have them play it before starting their next meeting. Wait until you see how attendees become more present, engaged and focused!
