It’s not news that technology allows us to work all the time. The effect is that workdays aren’t limited to “work hours” and the workplace isn’t limited to the office space. Add in a competitive environment where employees want to be seen putting in extra work, and all of a sudden the 60-hour work week becomes standard. However, the brave rebels who limit their hours worked to 49 or less are generally as productive, create better quality work, and are healthier and less stressed than their overworked counterparts.

It’s a simple fact that most employers face increasing healthcare costs. One way to address the impact of rising costs is to encourage the workforce to become healthier through personal wellness plans. When employees take an active role in their health and wellness, the chances decrease that they will have complicated conditions that require costly treatments. Beyond the economic motivation for companies to encourage wellness plans, healthy employees are happier and more productive, too.

Mindfulness is the practice of purposely focusing your attention on the present without drifting into concerns about the past or future or getting caught up in making judgments about what’s happening. Doing absolutely nothing – not even thinking – for 10 minutes a day, simply by being mindful and experiencing the present moment, has transformative power.
