Welcome Mindful Mayors & Municipalities!
We were so thrilled to see the huge interest from Canada's mayors in supporting their municipalities with mindfulness that we'd like to invite you to a free five day trial the 30 Day Mindfulness Challenge starting on Monday, May 8. You're welcome to include members of your staff as well as leaders from the municipality's first responder community (fire, police, rescue, ER, EMT, 911, etc.).
Simply forward them this link and have them complete the registration form below.
We also received yesterday a number of questions about the Challenge, how it works, who's taken it and how it benefits a municipality or region. See our answers below...
What is the 30 Day Mindfulness Challenge?
It's an evidence-based online training that is proven by UBC's Sauder School of Business to 'significantly increase' resilience, well-being, engagement, performance, and more. Because the bilingual training is just five minutes a day on any device, at any time, it's easy to deploy in workplaces where there's shift work, different job types and multiple locations.
Who's taken the Challenge?
The 30 Day Mindfulness Challenge has been used by first responders, students, teachers, professors, business leaders, health care workers, government officials and more. Because it's rooted in neuroscience, easy to implement, fun and effective, the Challenge is becoming one of North America's leading e-mental health tools.
How does the Challenge benefit first responders?
How does the Challenge benefit a municipality or region?
When city employees take the 30 Day Mindfulness Challenge, whether they be in planning, parks and rec, finance or whatever, they are given mental health tools that lower their stress, increase resilience and improve performance. This impacts the individual employee and their team which helps to make the entire orgnazation more mindful.
Here's how the Challenge benefited employees from the Region of Waterloo in Ontario, Canada:
