Mindfulness and Stress Reduction with Daniel Goleman, best-selling author of Emotional Intelligence. Dr. Goleman discusses the stress-reducing qualities of mindfulness, how to develop emotional intelligence through mindfulness, and choosing the right natural stress-reduction technique to suit the practitioners’ preferences and situation. Chronic stress on the job leads to a myriad of health issues and high turnover, both of which negatively impact an organization’s productivity. Our system isn’t programmed to be in constant fight or flight mode. While we can’t always immediately change our stressors, we still need to find regular periods of rest and relaxation to maintain our well-being. Finding the right relaxation technique can help you balance your nervous system, feel more relaxed and better cope with life’s stressful challenges.
