Mindfulness for Stress Reduction at Work

The word ‘Mindfulness’ has become very popular of late especially in the West. A keyword search on the Internet for ‘Mindfulness’ results in close to 2.5 million hits. Since its introduction into the medical world in the 1970’s by way of Dr. Jon Kabat Zinn’s Mindfulness-based Stress Reduction (MBSR) programme, numerous self-help books and scholarly work based on the subject have been published. This includes ‘The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Mindfulness,’ and ‘Mindfulness for Dummies.’
