Celebrating World Meditation Day!

In ordinary times, health professionals are at an especially high risk for developing stress-related conditions, such as: burnout, depression and anxiety.

Since November 2021, PHSA’s Psychological Health and Safety team and BC Children’s Hospital Center for Mindfulness and its collaborators have been busy making up a beautiful set of tools to support health care workers.

‘The Loving Kindness Card for Health Care Providers’ and ‘A More Mindful Hospital’ card deck are business card size and were designed to fit neatly into your pocket or ID lanyard.

Comprised of simple micro-practices these cards were co-created with input from several groups at the C&W worksite.

Did you know that Meditation has been scientifically proven to have positive mental and physical effect when practiced regularly? Some of the key benefits of meditation include:

· Help with anxiety

· Stress reduction

· Focussed attention

Request these resources today for yourself or to use for a team-building activity.
