Is Mindfulness BS?

I work one on one with execs for one very good reason… to live mindfully you have to live holistically and to live holistically you have to include your home life in any mathematics you use to determine life balance and direction. That’s why corporate training fails in Mindfulness… it cannot cross the “grey line” from work to privacy… but I do.. and that’s why my clients excel.

This article says Mindfulness at work – Total BS? YES

Objectives

The aim of the present study was to evaluate the effectiveness of a worksite mindfulness-related multi-component health promotion intervention on work engagement, mental health, need for recovery and mindfulness.

Methods

In a randomized controlled trial design, 257 workers of two research institutes participated. The intervention group (n = 129) received a targeted mindfulness-related training, followed by e-coaching. The total duration of the intervention was 6 months. Data on work engagement, mental health, need for recovery and mindfulness were collected using questionnaires at baseline and after 6 and 12 months follow-up. Effects were analyzed using linear mixed effect models.

Results

There were no significant differences in work engagement, mental health, need for recovery and mindfulness between the intervention and control group after either 6- or 12-months follow-up. Additional analyses in mindfulness-related training compliance subgroups (high and low compliance versus the control group as a reference) and subgroups based on baseline work engagement scores showed no significant differences either.

Conclusions

This study did not show an effect of this worksite mindfulness-related multi-component health promotion intervention on work engagement, mental health, need for recovery and mindfulness after 6 and 12 months.
