Wellbeing and mindfulness workshop

Dorchester Chamber and Dorchester BID recognise the importance of raising awareness of mental health issues in the workplace. Early identification of stress triggers at work can benefit employees and hard-pressed business owners significantly.

To spread awareness of this important topic, we are arranging a workshop on Thursday, 28th March (10am-1pm) at The Town Hall, Corn Exchange Buildings on High East Street. The workshop will be delivered by Zenna

What can I expect at the workshop?

The interactive workshop will be engaging, informative, interactive and designed to provide relief from today’s stressful working environments.
This workshop will allow you to understand the following:
  • Signs and impact of stress, anxiety and depression in the workplace
  • External and internal stress triggers
  • How to work past them
  • The effectiveness of mindfulness techniques, from scientific research
  • The principles of mindfulness
  • Instruction and practice in mindfulness techniques
  • How thoughts and emotions affect wellbeing
  • The art of mindful communication
  • The effect of nutrition on mental health 

Why this is important

Spreading awareness of mental health issues and using techniques for stress-reduction has proved to have a positive impact on office dynamics. Employees report higher levels of wellbeing, resilience, decision-making and job satisfaction.
