Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
Mindfulness can be a method in health promotion for the prevention of work-related stress. In the current study six informants provide their experiences, through semi-structured interviews, how mindfulness can be practiced at work, what conditions are considered to increase and decrease implementation in everyday work and how mindfulness changed the individual in their way of work. The thematic analysis resulted in four themes; become a lifestyle, focused presence, the organization's role and perception of mindfulness. To enable implementation of mindfulness in everyday work, it is important that the individual is motivated and that the organization creates conditions for implementation. There’s a need for further research, of how psychological organization factors and conditions enable the implementation of mindfulness in everyday work.
