Tune into January’s webinar for a journey into the world of mindfulness and how it can support your wellbeing and professional activities in 2020.

Mindfulness has become a cultural phenomenon but it’s not just meditation and ‘being present’. Mindfulness offers the opportunity to tune into your intuitive wisdom and inner strength so you can support your wellbeing, enhance your cognitive abilities and set clear boundaries in your life.

Presenter, Sam Toon, argues that research and insight professionals generally have a greater awareness of their own cognitive biases and self-awareness. Researching others often gives professionals a level of empathy and understanding about the human condition. But the job is stressful as highlighted by the 2019 Opening the Conversation research which revealed that 85% of researchers have struggled with their mental wellbeing

This webinar will give grounding on what mindfulness actually is and how you can practice it. Sam provides useful ways that you can establish your own mindfulness practices as well as provide an overview on meditation.
