Mindfulness for Wellbeing with Orla O'Sullivan, PhD

During global payroll week we want to give back to the global payroll community.


During global payroll week we want to give back to the global payroll community. We know business resilience and payroll resilience have been top of people’s minds since the onset of COVID-19 but we wanted to look after the people resilience behind those areas with this practical session that introduces the fundamentals of mindfulness, which research shows affects many aspects of our life, from our cardiovascular profile to our overall sense of happiness.

What we repeatedly do becomes our habit and eventually a trait. With mindfulness, we can train ourselves not only to focus our attention, but to experience wholesome states like ease, gratitude, kindness and peace.
