Mindfulness Training Recommended to Reduce Stress and Anxiety in the Workplace

Sydney-based Mindfulness Space recommends corporate mindfulness training as a way to reduce stress and anxiety that affects a large percentage of Australian workplaces.

Sydney, Australia - February 14, 2018 /PressCable/ —

Anxiety is the most common mental health condition in Australia with 1 in 4 Australians experiencing some form of stress and/or anxiety at some point. Mindfulness training as offered by Mindfulness Space is a proven method to reduce the symptoms of workplace stress and anxiety.

While stress and worry are common responses to situations where one may feel emotional pressure, it usually passes once the stressful situation has been resolved, or ‘stressor’ has been removed.

For mild symptoms of anxiety, lifestyle changes, such as regular physical exercise and reducing one’s stress levels may help. For levels of anxiety that begin to impact on one’s life, psychological and/or mindfulness interventions may be beneficial.

Mindfulness Space offers mindfulness training workshops in Sydney for workplaces, community groups, sport clubs and schools.

Mindfulness refers to the mental process that can be characterised by a state of nonjudgmental awareness of the present moment experience, including one’s physical sensations, thoughts, awareness, while encouraging openness, curiosity, and acceptance.

The basic premise underlying mindfulness practices is that experiencing the present moment nonjudgmentally and openly can effectively counter the effects of stressors because excessive orientation toward the past or future when dealing with stressors can be related to feelings of anxiety.

A review of 47 clinical trials involving more than 3,500 participants with mild anxiety found that those who underwent mindfulness training workshops experienced improvement in their mood after eight weeks, on par with the effect seen with prescription medications.

“By teaching people to respond to stressful situations more reflectively rather than reflexively, mindfulness practices can effectively counter experiential avoidance strategies, which are often attempts to alter the intensity or frequency of unwanted internal experiences,” said Paul Jozsef, principal mindfulness trainer at Mindfulness Space.

Through the application of mindfulness practices for mental health conditions such as anxiety, Jozsef claims that his clients are more resilient and better able to navigate the daily ups and downs of everyday life.

Australian leaders open hostile rift over office affair

Feb 20, 2018

CANBERRA, Australia — Australia's prime minister and his deputy have criticized each other in an open and hostile rift over politically damaging revelations that the deputy is expecting a baby with a former press secretary. Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull on Thursday accused Deputy Prime Minister Barnaby Joyce of making a "shocking error of judgment" by having an office affair that hurt his wife, his four daughters and his new partner who is due to give birth in April.

Parliament rejects call for firing of Australia's deputy PM

Feb 20, 2018

CANBERRA, Australia — Australia's beleaguered deputy prime minister withstood a parliamentary vote Thursday that would have called for his firing after revelations of a relationship with a former staffer and a free-residence deal with a wealthy political donor. But Barnaby Joyce will take leave rather than act as government leader next week, as his Nationals party mulls his future. The opposition Labor Party had hoped disaffected lawmakers in Joyce's own party would back their motion, but coalition lawmakers in the House of Representatives held firm and defeated it 73 to 70. Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull has publicly stood by his...

Reduced Super Rugby competition to show if less is more

Feb 20, 2018

WELLINGTON, New Zealand — The 2018 Super Rugby season will test the concept that less is more, demonstrating whether a tournament pared back from 18 to 15 teams will become stronger to win back jaded fans. After years of uncoordinated growth in which the southern hemisphere competition expand into five nations and became unwieldy, tournament organizer SANZAAR hopes the decision to jettison two teams from South Africa and one from Australia will bring balance and lift the quality of games. Ambitious plans for expansion into new markets had been developed before SANZAAR applied the brakes and admitted rapid growth had...

Australian deputy prime minister under pressure to resign

Feb 20, 2018

CANBERRA, Australia — Australia's deputy prime minister was under mounting pressure Wednesday to resign as his party's leader over revelations of a relationship with a former staffer. Newspapers revealed last week that Barnaby Joyce and his former media adviser are expecting a baby together, and the scandal has angered many within Joyce's conservative, rural-based Nationals party. As leader of the junior party in the governing coalition, Joyce is both the deputy prime minister and acting prime minister when the prime minister is overseas. Nationals lawmaker Ken O'Dowd said he expected a party delegation would confront Joyce soon to consider his...

AP interview: Qatar Air CEO sees growth despite Mideast spat

Feb 20, 2018

CANBERRA, Australia — Qatar Airways' chief executive said Tuesday the carrier will post a loss this year because four other Arab countries have severed land, air and sea links with Qatar. Akbar al-Baker said the ban on Qatar's flagship airline flying to neighboring Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates, Bahrain and Egypt since last summer has forced it to fly longer routes through Turkey and Iran, and has hit the company's bottom line, but not its expansion plans. "We have increased maintenance costs because we are flying longer routes, we have more fuel consumption, so the cost to the airline is...
