Why Mindfulness?


Over 2/3 of full-time workers experience burnout on the job.
Burned-out employees are 63% more likely to take a sick day, 2.6 times as likely to be actively seeking a different job, and 23% more likely to visit the emergency room.

Suicidal thinking, severe depression and rates of self-injury among U.S. college students more than doubled over less than a decade, a nationwide study suggests. The rate of moderate to severe depression rose from 23.2% in 2007 to 41.1% in 2018, while rates of moderate to severe anxiety rose from 17.9% in 2013 to 34.4% in 2018.


Research has discovered that a regular mindfulness practice can support one’s overall wellbeing, including a noticeable increase in clarity, compassion, and resilience.

  • Clarity: Mindfulness results in increased awareness, attentional functioning, and “effortless doing.”

  • Compassion: Mindfulness increases empathy and compassion for others and for oneself.

  • Resilience: Mindfulness supports increased cognitive flexibility, the ability to recover after challenges and negative events, and increased immune function.
