Abstract

Work is enormously important in our lives, not only because it takes up about half of our waking time, or provides us with a means of existence, but also because of the psychological impact that it has (Boniwell, 2011). As such, well-being at the workplace has become a primary feature in many organisations. The encouraging results from the growing body of research in Mindfulness and positive psychology have been pivotal in encouraging the DAS to enrich their approach towards wellness for Educators significantly, through CalmEd, a well-being initiative. A recent training for Educational Advisors inspired by Mindfulness-Based Interventions (MBI) and positive psychology, saw the result of 57% who felt that they were starting to develop mindfulness practices more consistently and 43% found themselves to be reaching a good proficiency towards the end of 11 months of training.  Additionally, from the latest follow-up survey during the Co-Vid 19 pandemic, 100% were more aware of having to practice Mindfulness during a crisis, and 60% were able to practice composure during this time. The training intended to improve the responsibility towards the well-being of self, and innovatively improve their approach towards work through job crafting.
