If you are an employer who takes a proactive stance in aiding your workforce’s mental health, you may have encountered scenarios where employees have been dealing with depression, family trauma, anxiety, and also those who have gone through a drug rehab program. That you support your employees in these and in other situations, is laudable, and you possibly might wonder what more you can do to promote all your employees’ mental health.
People are becoming increasingly aware that not all mental health issues require prescriptive medicine, and that their mental well-being can be maintained and improved using other methods. There are lots of these methods around, and one which often gets cited as highly effective is meditation.
Meditation is a means of quieting the mind and focusing on the present moment to the exclusion of anything else. People benefit in lots of ways from meditation and the most commonly mentioned is clarity of thinking, a feeling of relaxation, and one that all is well. With regards to those who might be going through drug rehabilitation, these are surely three excellent states of mind to be in.
Whatever the reason you believe medication might benefit your employees, you can encourage it further by creating somewhere within your business premises that they go to and meditate. Whether you call it a meditation room or meditation space does not matter. The fact that it will exist and be available for use by employees is the important point.
