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.
