Some stress is helpful, motivating us to work harder. But toxic stress, characterized by fatigue, lapses in concentration and irritability, often strikes without warning. Without the right support in place, this kind of stress can quickly take its toll on your people. The longer toxic stress persists, the more resources it takes to address it.
You've seen the signs:
Customer service suffers
Innovation dries up
More sick days are logged
Medical insurance claims increase
Recruiting & onboarding $ increase

Yes. Unlike other mindfulness programs, the Year of Living Better® corporate mindfulness program was specifically designed for the workplace. While mindfulness practices have historically been inspired by Buddhist traditions, the act of quiet contemplation is found in historical traditions across the globe. The Year of Living Better® program was built using the leading practices utilized in scientific study of mindfulness health interventions at America's top universities. Inclusive, work-appropriate language is core to the Year of Living Better® approach.
"It was the Zoom call to 'undo' all Zoom calls. Before the session I was tired and stressed. After, I felt calmer.
The class opened my eyes to a wider variety of ways to practice mindfulness."
