Abstract [en]

In Sweden, the frequency of mental disorder increases. Mindfulness is a form of awareness training to be in the present, who can increase the ability to calm instead of getting stuck in habitual behavior, such as anxiety about the future. In the current study four respondents provide individually their experiences related to health, after participating in a mindfulness program. This qualitative study, with a thematic analysis of narrative base, shows that the mindfulness is embraced in varying degrees to manage their own health and life at work and private life including relationships. Further study is recommended on the effects of mindfulness in a longer term perspective, and to determine any other influencing factors.
