Mindful : August 2019
Top of Mind MINDFULNESS IN TRANSIT New York’s Metro- politan Transpor- tation Authority offers programs that teach mindful- ness, meditation, and yoga to its employees across the transit system, from bus drivers and train operators to office workers, ticket-takers, and mechanics. The programs, run by a corporate wellness consulting firm called the Health Enhancement Company, have been offered for several years, and HEC’s president Donna DeFalco estimates they’ve reached 7,200 employees so far. Now, they are rolling out a large-scale daily program geared toward people working on transit vehicles every day, who face uncom- mon challenges and stressors in their work, such as isolation from their bosses and col- leagues and a lack of flexibility while on the job. WELLNESS IN THE HOUSE This spring a pro- gram with poten- tial to ease stress in the nation’s capitol launched at the US House of Representa- tives. The House Wellness Center brings wellness education and services—includ- ing mindfulness— to members and staff of the House. On tap: lunch- time seminars on topics including work–life balance, sleep essentials, and gratitude; assistance with life-management issues, such as childcare; a newsletter provid- ing informational ar ticles, a guide to resources, and wellness tips; and instruction in mindfulness- based stress man- agement, among other skills. READY, SET, MEDITATE! Star ted with a wink and fully aware of the paradox, Competitive Medi- tation looks like it might actually become a thing. Since its creation in 2018 by a writer for tech news site Mashable, the 5-minute medita- tion showdowns— during which two competitors wear brainwave- detecting head- bands that record your number of “ thoughts” via weak electrical impulses—have led to matches among video game creators, residents of a meditation center, and employees of the leading mindfulness app, Calm. Keep up with the latest in the world of mindfulness. PHOTOGRAPHSBYRAWPIXEL.COM,MATTH.WADE
