More than 8 in 10 employed Americans are stressed out by at least one thing about their jobs. Although this statistic may surprise you, luckily there are many practices you can do to minimize or eliminate stress. For our cultural camaraderie program this past month, the Berbay team met with instructor Natalie Bell to discuss mindful wellness.
Bell encourages mindfulness and paying attention to the present moment. Many of us dwell on the past or concentrate on the future. By paying attention to the present, we can listen and engage better while balancing what is needed in the moment.
One lesson Bell taught us about was the STOP exercise, which stands for: Stop what you are doing. Take a few breaths. Observe what you’re feeling. Proceed with what you are doing. The STOP exercise is a quick and easy way for individuals to bring clarity and concentration to the projects they are working on and the people they are talking to.
Berbay Marketing & PR’s cultural camaraderie initiative was recently launched to promote the health and wellness of our employees as well as to encourage team building.
