Feasibility of an Online Mindfulness Program for Stress
Management—A Randomized, Controlled Trial
When stress is left unchecked, your employees aren’t bringing their best selves to work—and the effects can be long lasting and wreak havoc on their health and on your organizational culture.
Unmanaged chronic stress can contribute to many health problems, including high blood pressure, heart disease, obesity, diabetes and depression. An estimated 75 to 90 percent of all doctors’ visits are stress-related.
That’s why Cleveland Clinic developed Stress Free Now, an online, six-week program that teaches clinically proven relaxation techniques to help employees reduce and control their feelings of stress.
This research study measures and proves the effects of Stress Free Now in its ability to reduce participants’ perceived stress and increase their levels of mindfulness, psychological well-being, vitality and quality of life.
