Companies can choose from many courses on Time-, Conflict- or Stress-Management which appear to offer a solution to the problems of daily stress and the accompanying negative effects.
Such measures are usually directed to optimising some processes, in whatever form. At the risk of exaggerating, one could say they consist of a kind of negotiation with whatever factors are causing the stress. These methods offer no long-term solution, though, and they can hardly resolve the real problem, which is to find the cause of each individual’s stress.
Stress cannot be measured. Every person reacts highly-indivudually to the stimuli sent by the environment. Outer conditions are not always changeable; however, it is always possible to change the way in which we react to them.
That also goes for self-induced stress. We cause much of our problems, fears and worries by projecting our thoughts into the future or the past. But our thoughts are not an actual picture of reality. Instead, they are a mirror of our momentary mood.
The point of MBSR is to reach a new fundamental attitude. The goal is a life led consciously, which results in a more positive professional and private life.
