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.

Lava from Hawaii volcano enters ocean from 3 flows

May 25, 2018

HONOLULU — Lava entered the ocean from a third flow, marking the third week of a Hawaii volcano eruption that has opened up nearly two dozen vents in rural communities, destroyed dozens of buildings and shot miles-high plumes of ash into the sky. Low lava fountains were erupting from a nearly continuous 2-mile-long (3.22-kilometer) portion of the series of fissures that have opened up in the ground, scientists said Thursday. The fountains were feeding channelized lava flows down to the coast. The eastern-most channel split, creating three ocean entries Wednesday. Since the eruption began on May 3, Hawaii County has...

The Latest: 3 lava flows now reaching ocean off Hawaii

HONOLULU — The Latest on the eruption of Kilauea volcano on Hawaii's Big Island (all times local): 3:10 p.m. Three lava flows from an erupting volcano are now flowing into the ocean off Hawaii's Big Island.

Scientists say the Kilauea volcano isn't letting up on its three weeks of wild activity. Besides the airborne shards of glass and acid formed when lava hits seawater, explosions at...

Gut check: Swallowed capsule could spot trouble, send alert

May 25, 2018

Scientists have developed a swallowed capsule packed with tiny electronics and millions of genetically engineered living cells that might someday be used to spot health problems from inside the gut. The capsule was tested in pigs and correctly detected signs of bleeding, researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology reported Thursday in the journal Science . At more than an inch long, it will have to be made smaller for testing in people. But the results suggest the capsule could eventually be used in people to find signs of ulcers, inflammatory bowel disease or even colon cancer, the researchers said....

Saudi Arabia releases 3 women as other activists still held

May 25, 2018

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates — Saudi authorities have released three prominent women's rights activists, but continue to hold at least seven others in a sweep targeting prominent icons of the country's women's rights movement, activists and rights groups said Thursday. The three women released — Aisha al-Mana, Hessah al-Sheikh and Madeha al-Ajroush— are longtime advocates of women's rights and took part in the first protest in 1990 against the kingdom's ban on women driving. Amnesty International and people familiar with the case said the conditions of the women's release remain unknown. Those familiar with the arrests spoke with The Associated...

Hawaii volcano generates blue flames from burning methane

May 25, 2018

HONOLULU — Blue flames from burning methane are the latest natural phenomena being seen at the eruption of the Kilauea volcano in Hawaii. Nighttime photos released Wednesday by the U.S. Geological Survey show the flames spouting from cracks in the pavement in the Leilani Estates neighborhood where the volcano has been gushing lava on the big island of Hawaii for the past three weeks. The volcano produces methane when hot lava buries and burns plants and trees. "The methane gas will flow through the ground, through the cracks that are already existing, and will come up wherever there's a place...
