Sue Shellenbarger has investigated the ways employers are trying to create less stressful workplaces. “Mindful-based stress reduction” is one of the most effective methods studied, in which there are typically eight, two-hour weekly sessions, plus a final full-day retreat, where “meditation techniques like breathing and bringing thoughts back when they wander” are taught.
