014 Yinshi meditation at work

Episode Summary

Today I’m with Leigh Chapman, Founder of Yinshi, a workplace wellness start-up focused on facilitating meditation at work. His business model is both hardware and software, providing physical meditation pods that can provide a safe haven for an office worker to escape to for a little quiet time, as well as a suite of services to facilitate and encourage a greater acceptance and understanding of the value meditation can bring to the workday. We discuss the pros and cons of open-plan offices on mental health, the benefits of biophilic design, micro-napping at work, the ‘Six Whys of Meditation’, how mindfulness improves productivity and the human-centric office post-Covid.
