Stress at Work

The Role of Workplace Mindfulness

HR executives are quickly catching on to just how much potential there is in workplace mindfulness initiatives. In recent years there has been a surge in interest and it really does look like mindfulness at work is about to undergo the same process of acceptance in the office that yoga and massage have.

Can mindfulness help reduce stress at work?

How many friends and colleagues have you heard say they’re experiencing stress at work? How often do you hear yourself saying the same? According to a recent study by the University of Cambridge, around  half a million people in the UK experience work-related stress at a level they believe is making them ill, and up to 5 million people said they feel highly stressed in their jobs. In the UK, 40% of all work related illnesses are caused by stress, which highlights just how much this is affecting us.
