In a recent study over half the people surveyed (52%) said they only feel fully relaxed for just a couple of hours each week, and nearly a third (31%) put reducing their stress at the top of the wish list, followed by spending more time with their family and friends, and feeling more confident (27% and 25% respectively).

Almost a third agreed that they felt mind training and meditation could make a real difference to their day-to-day stress levels but a quarter were unsure how to integrate mind training into their busy schedules.
