What we did
The Guardian newspaper wanted to help its high-profile but stretched digital team to deal with stress more effectively and know what to prioritise in a fast-paced, uncertain context. After our mindfulness training, the team reported a 22% improvement in their ability to interact well with colleagues when under pressure.
What they said
‘More aware of where my colleagues might be coming from. Learning to manage stressful thoughts about work – I realised I was assuming work would be stressful every day, and this was stressing me out!’ – The Guardian participant
‘It has significantly helped me to calm my anxiety and respond more skilfully at work, which has reduced feelings of stress outside of work.’ – The Guardian participant
‘Can help with a wide range of issues: problem thoughts, calmness, focus, sleeping. Helped the group considerably.’ – The Guardian participant
