Abstract

Excessive working and compulsive internet use are problems for many workers. Mindfulness interventions, which focus on acceptance and being in the present moment, are generally found to be effective, for instance in terms of reducing workers’ stress levels. However, such interventions are time consuming and may not be ideal for the kinds of busy employees who are at risk from excessive working and internet use. This research aimed to evaluate a much shorter mindfulness intervention (involving daily 10-minute practice for two weeks), to see if it would be effective for reducing the early signs of compulsive internet use.
