Idle is for everyone! Everybody could benefit from taking a brief pause from their day to virtually travel to a beautiful location somewhere around the globe, get a great massage to help them physically relax, and allow the natural sounds and/or guided meditation help them to clear their mind refocus their spirit. But it’s especially critical for anyone who feels like they can’t stop their mind from racing, has trouble sleeping, and/or feels out of touch with their own mind and body. Virtual Reality, massage, and meditation are all individually proven techniques to reduce stress, pain, anxiety, and blood pressure, amongst other known health effects.
Following the Silicon Valley model of employee happiness and success, businesses are beginning to understand the benefits of investing in their employees’ wellness. Aside from the physiological effects described above, virtual reality, massage, and meditation are also individually proven to improve focus, productivity, creativity, and decision making. Further, the evidence suggests when employees feel valued, they are happier to come to work and there is reduced employee turnover. Those combined benefits are two-fold – both increasing business productivity while saving you time and money in the long run from reduced turnover and negative health issues.
