April is Stress Awareness Month.
These days people are experiencing so many changes and challenges in the workplace and beyond, that they are more stressed than ever. In the UK, recent research has shown 50% of workdays lost are through stress. Over time, this can lead to chronic stress and serious health implications, as well as a sense of overwhelm and even burnout.
Join us for a 45 minute workshop – free for AVM members – where Karen Janes will be sharing practical, brain-based mindfulness tools and tips that can help you manage stress, build resilience, and enhance your focus and efficiency.
Please note: some of the techniques shared may involve movement – seated or standing – so please ensure you have sufficient clear space around you to take part in the activities.
This event will not be recorded.
Karen Janes is a Certified Workplace Mindfulness Facilitator and owner of The KJ Way, delivering workplace mindfulness solutions to help your organisation and its people to flourish and thrive.
Karen had a 20-year career in the charity sector working in senior leadership roles, and is a former Director of AVM. Karen left the sector in 2020 after a period of work-related anxiety and burnout.
These days, people are experiencing so many changes and challenges these in the workplace and beyond that they are more stressed than ever. Over time, this can lead to chronic stress which can cause serious health conditions, as well as a sense of overwhelm and even burnout.
With her business, The KJ Way, Karen teaches people powerful brain-based mindfulness exercises that help them to reduce their stress, increase their resilience, and enhance their focus, effectiveness and personal wellbeing. Bringing the benefits of mindfulness into the workplace with tools people can immediately start using, both in their professional and personal lives, to create positive and meaningful change for themselves and their teams.
All the tools and practices offered are based on the well-researched and proven Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) programme, are secular, adapted to the workplace, and trauma sensitive. They are equally suitable for beginners as well as people with previous mindfulness experience.
