About MBSR

While short bursts of pressure can help us rise to meet a challenge, long-term stress can have a major impact on our physical and mental health.

Stress is the feeling of being under pressure, with symptoms including anger and
anxiety, difficulty sleeping, loss of appetite, breathlessness and chest pains. People who are under prolonged stress are at greater risk of health problems like high blood pressure and heart attacks.

As a nation, we’re under greater stress than ever. After bereavement and divorce, work is the third biggest cause of stress. Over half of all workers believe that stress is damaging their health. As well as impacting on people’s health and wellbeing, it can also damage social lives and relationships.
