We value the role of digital technology in our lives and are working to assist people in using it more mindfully as opposed to not using it at all. By questioning our relationship with technology, changing our habits and setting a Shining example to those around us, we can start to really reconnect with ourselves and others and live a better, more balanced life.
Helping your business to Shine Offline
The temptation to check your emails out of hours, to procrastinate with online research when faced with a challenging deadline, the blurred boundaries of work and leisure time, the expectation that you are always ‘on call’, notifications on our phones from emails, texts, social media . . .
With this in mind, we work to empower people to recognise the extent to which the digital world is affecting their wellbeing and productivity and to acknowledge the importance of allowing the mind to rest, rejuvenate, and refocus.
Learning programmes to suit your business
At Shine Offline we work with you to better understand your business and develop solutions that address your needs and fit within your budget. If your staff are stressed and overworked; if they are not engaging as a team; if you are struggling with productivity and focus amongst your workforce, then the Shine Offline programme can definitely help.
We offer a variety of offline learning sessions including a bite size 90 minute workshop, full offline team day and a 6 week Disconnect to Reconnect course. We pride ourselves on the energy and fun we bring to each session which includes tangible and practical tips and tools that highlight the impact of small behavioural changes on managing distraction, lowering stress and building resilience.

The rise in mindfulness in our digitally distracted world
It is no coincidence that with the rise of technology, and its permeation into every aspect of our lives, there has also been a rise in the interest in mindfulness. More of us are looking for ways to slow down and focus in what has become, for many, a distracted, frantic world. Mindfulness training can help you to be in the present, engage better with others, work smarter, relax and reduce stress. If you’re a bit unclear about what mindfulness is and what it has to do with your mobile phone have a look here.
