Goldie Hawn Wants Mindful Works

Goldie Hawn is taking her organization The Hawn Foundation one step ahead. The Academy Award Winning actress is going to launchMindful Works” in collaboration with Mark Bertolini, Chairman, CEO and President of Aetna . The two organizations of Goldie Hawn and Mark Bertolini, The Hawn Foundation and Aetna, will together launch their collaborated program “Mindful Works” during The World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland.

President and editor-in-chief of the Huffington Post Media Group, Arianna Huffington, will moderate this launch event. Arianna Huffington is also writing a book on mindfulness that will come soon. The title of her book is “Thrive: Third Metric to Redefining Success and Creating a Life of Well-Being, Wisdom, and Wonder."

This new program contains tools and strategies based on neuroscience, social and emotional learning, mindfulness and positive psychology to help people center, focus and thrive. The “Mindful Works” collaboration will show the results and outcomes for improvements to workforce productivity, engagement and satisfaction as it includes a research component to the program designed.

Hawn and Bertolini believe that their Thursday's panel discussion in Davos can help improve the health and wellness of people around the world. And Goldie Hawn will continue the conversation on Friday at The World Economic Forum, during “An Idea, An Insight” in the World Congress Center from 2:45 to 3:15 pm.

“Research has shown that highly stressed individuals are at greater risk for many different health conditions, such as coronary heart disease, some cancers, diabetes, depression and anxiety, and obesity. Through innovative mind-body stress reduction programs with Aetna employees, we have demonstrated that mindfulness-based programs can reduce stress and improve people’s health,” Bertolini said. “Healthier people are more productive and happier. We are pleased to work with The Hawn Foundation to highlight initiatives that continue to build an evidence-base showing that mindfulness-based programs can help people achieve better overall health and wellness.”

Adds Hawn, “If you can teach people about their most important resource, their brain, show them tools and strategies for self-regulation, stress management, how to achieve greater focus and the power in choosing optimism, you’ll have a population that becomes more resilient and able to deal more effectively with the challenges we will all face as a 21st century workforce.”
