Meditating on the Deeper Meaning of Workplace Wellness

It seems that we are constantly bombarded at work by emails, phone calls, meetings and deadlines. It’s not surprising that an estimated one million people call in sick every day due to workplace-related stress. Companies are beginning to focus more on employee wellness, and one stress-reducing technique is meditation. This article emphasizes that a place to meditate is more than just a “quiet zone” or conference room. Ideally, it is a space that allows workers to completely disconnect and re-focus. Designing these spaces into a workplace may be an important contributor to lower stress levels and elevate employee well-being.
