Back by popular demand, Balanced You is partnering once again with Mindfulness Northwest to offer free mindfulness classes and workshops to King County employees.
Mindfulness is a practice that can support you in reducing stress at work and at home. Mindfulness techniques are especially useful now, as we continue to move through the uncertainty of the coronavirus pandemic. In alignment with social distancing recommendations, all in-person classes have temporarily shifted to live, virtual platforms.
Through the winter, we will continue classes for employees involved in the COVID-19 response, and have added new classes for all employees that will teach techniques such as how to be mindful when you only have a minute and how to meet anxiety with mindfulness.
