December 2021 – Mindfulness

Everyone at The Claim Lab would like to wish you and your family the very best for the Holidays!

It’s been quite a year and perhaps the excitement is not over yet…

I hope you enjoy our meditating Santa picture.

Maybe this is something that we should all try right now, as we ease into another uncertain new year.

I am a huge advocate for meditation, and it seems to be a very under-used tool in helping people return to work.

The technique is an important part of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. Also, its used extensively in pain therapy. Now I’m not suggesting that someone with a raging pain in their back can just meditate the pain away, but if pain could be reduced by one or two notches, then maybe less meds can be prescribed…?

Many people still view meditation with skepticism, and I was certainly in that group, but my physician strongly recommended it for my stress and anxiety, and my related sleep problems, and I’m a convert! He recommends two twenty-minute sessions each day, morning and afternoon. 

Would your employer let you build this into your schedule?
I hear that some companies are now doing this….

However, if you are still on-the-fence about the whole concept of meditation, then can I recommend a book… It’s a very easy read:

Thich Nhat Hanh is a Buddhist monk from Vietnam, so the book has been translated, but is very readable and I know you have heard this line before, but it changed my life…

If you have not read the book, and you are interested, I have 20 copies sitting here next to my desk. Let me know if you would like one!
