The more successful you are, the busier you become. And the longer you remain on the treadmill the more you suffer. The Electra Business Breakfast Kāpiti is delighted to be hosting Kerene Strochnetter to speak on mindfulness in the workplace.

Responding to the demands of modern life, family, and work is a constant challenge. You might only notice something’s wrong, when things start to unravel, your work no longer feels as satisfying, or the first tell-tale signs of burnout appear. It gets harder and harder to take time out, especially if you run your own business.

Without taking adequate downtime, persistent pressure shifts you into ‘default mode thinking’ and you spend too much time lost in thought, and less able to engage with the present moment, where you’re most productive and effective (and happier).

Using humour and flair, Kerene will remind you of what’s important; your health and well-being, relationships, and having a sense of purpose, while explaining (with the help of neuroscience) how short daily doses of mindfulness counteract the escalating pressure, by providing much-needed freedom from your busy head.

The benefits of mindfulness are mind-blowing (pun intended). Not just for your physical and emotional health, but to powerfully reconnect you with your work, life, and the people in it. Join Kerene as she explains how it works, while debunking the myths about why you probably think it’s not for you.
