Feeling Good at Work

Moderated by Doug Marshall (The World of Doug) with Ericka Jones, Nikki Erchul (Lux Hippie Life) and Andrew Nordberg (Moonlight Beverage).

Let’s look at Mindfulness. What is it? How can it work for individuals and is there room for it in the workplace? Depending on who you talk to, mindfulness at work can boost morale and create a greater sense of community or it can decrease productivity. If it benefits the individual, does it collectively add to the greater good of a company?

Doug will help navigate the conversation about mindfulness and the role it plays in personal lives and in work settings. We will focus on bridging the gap between self-care and mindfulness in personal lives and how it can be brought into work-life. We will also get a glimpse into companies that champion mindfulness at work and this discussion will spark ideas on how you can create mindful moments while working, whether you work in an office, from home, run your own company or do client-based work.

It will be an open forum for idea sharing and questions. It’s a great way to set yourself up for success for 2020.
