Offer virtual guided meditation

This pandemic has without question instilled a lot of insecurity, uncertainty, doubt, and despair in human beings. Many dreams and goals were dashed or put on hold. For those who were already struggling with depression before the pandemic, things may have become much worse. The research reported by the Harvard Gazette explored how one expert assessed brain activity in depressed participants, before and after meditation. The research suggests that regular meditation can train the brain to stop self-ruminating (fixating on negative thoughts and beliefs) much quicker. Based on this research employers may consider offering regular virtual guided meditation sessions to employees to promote a more positive outlook.
