Finding Headspace in the Workplace

May 8, 2017/ by Olivia Ramirez

Earlier this week, members of The Yard: Williamsburg set aside some time to achieve mindfulness amidst a busy work day. We got together with Embodied Workplace to meditate, write and heighten our senses with some artisanal chocolate.

Embodied Workplace brings mindfulness strategies to the workplace to help employees lower stress and improve focus. Their workshops aim to revitalize while enhancing learning, memory, emotion regulation and empathy.

Achieving Mindfulness in the Coworking Space

Between meditation sessions, members moved around the room assuming liberating new positions to stretch the body and relieve the mind. Afterwards, we engaged in introspective writing which helped us in understanding the bigger picture and allowed for creative breakthroughs.
