My husband has a very stressful job and he is always working or checking email on his blackberry. I am worried about his stress and want him to be more focused on me and the kids when he is home. Can this program help?
Yes, mindfulness can help and the place to start would be for you to consider learning these practices for your own stress, to help you better cope with this situation as it is, and to also help learn mindful communication with your husband.
Certainly, if your husband is willing to take a program it would help him see more clearly his behavior, address his stress, prioritize and live more fully in the moment.
