But what if you could improve workplace morale and prevent burnout by teaching your colleagues to form a new relationship with their stress?

The movement, mindset, and method.
Stress is the #1 cause of illness today. Take a stance and begin to implement effective, efficient courses that will teach people how to undo the patterns of stress. Our signature stress-reduction program is unlike any other wellness program out there.
UNWIND® shifts the stressful workplace mindset by teaching employees how to befriend stress starting from the moment they wake up. The net effect raises team morale, increases employee retention and boosts company profits.
Reducing unnecessary stress and increasing well-being does not have to be comprehensive in its approach. If you know the right techniques, you can fast-track the success of experiencing peace of mind in the daily grind.
UNWIND® is a unique stress management course that teaches practical meditation and mindfulness techniques to employees, at all skill levels, in a real-time experiential setting. Going beyond yoga and relaxation, UNWIND® helps employees redefine how they engage stress in all areas of life—by listening to cues from the body, mind and emotions.
Through a combination of Mindfulness & Deep-Relaxation techniques, our unique program teaches employees how to find peace of mind in the work-world of today by reducing the overwhelming pressures of stress.
It's easy, accessible, and applicable to any lifestyle.
The only thing required is the individual ready to add ease back into their daily grind.
UNWIND® teaches the minimalistic approach to stress reduction with ONE WORD, ONE STRETCH, and ONE SUPERPOWER to experience ease and relaxation immediately.
It's really as easy as...
The first highly impactful technique is knowing why you want peace of mind. Knowing how you want to feel and claiming that feeling is foundational to making a quick shift from stressed-out to feeling good.
The second essential technique to reducing stress is as simple as bringing back a good old-fashioned stretch with the requisite yawn. Your body and brain receive instant relaxation and rejuvenation with this simple step.
The biggest shift in relationship to stress comes from the third technique—honing the superpower that everyone possesses…the power of presence. Becoming more present and “in the moment” eliminates unnecessary tension carried both in the mind and the body.
The Nature of Stress
IT DOES HAVE VALUE
Stress can have positive effects in moderation—giving us the adrenaline we need to nail a performance or presentation. But when work emergencies, interpersonal issues, and home responsibilities build upon one another day after day, stress begins to take a toll on our minds and bodies. It leaves us fatigued, on edge, and uninspired.
UNWIND® recognizes that for many people, stress is not a one-time burst but a chronic, worsening knot. It needs to be worked on and unwound over time in order to get back the clarity, enthusiasm, and creativity we had before stress took over.
WHY UNWIND IN THE WORKPLACE?
Employees spend most of their time at work.
Learning how to manage stress in their most stressful environment gets to the root of the problem.
- Becoming more relaxed in the workplace equips employees to easily tackle stress in other environments.
- When coworkers experience relaxation together, they create a ripple effect that influences the entire staff.
WHAT’S THE ROI ON MINDFULNESS?
Job stress is estimated to cost more than $300 billion each year as a result of accidents, absenteeism, diminished productivity, medical expenses and legal proceedings.
- In a Harvard-affiliated study, participants who practiced mindfulness exercises 27 minutes per day for eight weeks experienced increased grey-matter density in the hippocampus, an area of the brain important for learning and memory. Their grey-matter density decreased in the amygdala, which plays a significant role in anxiety and stress.
- Another study found that participants who practiced yoga and meditation spent 43% less on medical services than non-practitioners.
One major benefit
THE STRESS-SLEEP CONNECTION
Whereas in 1942, only 11% of Americans reported getting six hours of sleep or less per night, today, 40% of us are functioning on less than the recommended amount of sleep. With too many responsibilities and not enough time to process them, we go to bed bound so tightly that quality sleep eludes us.
UNWIND™ helps employees break their stress patterns by finding and taking pauses to “unwind” during the day. Doing so allows them to fall asleep (and fall back asleep) more easily at night. More hours of sleep can transform a reactive, emotional workplace into a staff that arrives at work clear-headed, relaxed, and productive.
- Boost in energy
- Increase in joy & happiness
- More success in achieving wellness goals
- Overall well-being in all areas of life
