Q: Will stress completely disappear if we leave a job we don’t like?
A: Leaving a job you dislike may reduce stress, but it depends on various factors. If there are underlying patterns or unresolved issues within yourself, changing jobs alone may not eliminate stress entirely. It’s important to consider personal factors and work on building resilience to manage stress effectively.
Q: Is mindfulness only about stopping stress, or is it a way of life?
A: Mindfulness extends beyond stress reduction; it encompasses a way of life. It involves nurturing certain attitudes and observing challenges, oneself, and relationships in a mindful manner. Mindfulness becomes more apparent when practiced through an eight-week mindfulness course, leading to profound changes in perception and overall life experience.
