This contractor have devised a staff wellbeing measure to ensure all staff have the access and opportunity to help them manage their day-to-day wellbeing.

Research has highlighted that many people find practising mindfulness helps them become more aware of the present moment and can help them enjoy the world around them more and understand themselves better. The way people think (and what they think about) can affect how they feel and act. For example, if you think or worry a lot about upsetting past or future events, you might often feel sad or anxious.

What is Mindfulness?
Mindfulness is a technique you can learn which involves making a special effort to notice what is happening in the present moment (in your mind, body and surroundings) – without judging anything. It has roots in Buddhism and meditation, but you don’t have to be spiritual, or have any particular beliefs, to try it.

It aims to help people become more self-aware, feel calmer and less stressed, feel more able to choose how to respond to your thoughts and feelings, cope with difficult or unhelpful thoughts and be kinder towards yourself.

How does mindfulness work?
The theory behind mindfulness is that by using various techniques to bring attention to the present (usually focusing on peoples body and their breathing), they can notice how thoughts come and go in your mind. They may learn that they do not have to define who they are, or their experience of the world, and they can let go of them.
