The word mindfulness is currently on everyone’s lips and in “vogue”; It has become an integral part of the mental health discourse and is at the forefront of individual burnouts, depression, anxiety and adjustment disorders as an important pillar of the recovery program. Psychiatrists and doctors prescribe the 8-week MBSR program to their patients, which is also partially covered by some health insurance companies, and recommend yoga and meditation courses.

Thanks to the increasingly widespread holistic understanding of health and the removal of taboos surrounding psychological stress, mindfulness is also gaining increasing attention in various companies and institutions; Further training for employees increasingly includes yoga and meditation courses, and mindfulness-based stress management is recommended for both managers and employees.

What is Mindfulness?

But what's really behind it?

Mindfulness is more than focused attention; It describes much more an inner attitude, an openness to simply accept the moment as it presents itself. This disrupts our automated response patterns; This creates a deceleration and the opportunity to make our thinking and actions more conscious and sustainable. Through these processes, the relationship with ourselves grows, we get to know ourselves much better because we look closely instead of just functioning. This in turn changes the relationships in our work environment and in our private lives, making them clearer, more constructive and more benevolent.
