Changes to health delivery and administration in recent decades have intensified levels of stress, burnout, and morale among health care professionals. The demands these professionals face include heavy caseloads, limited control over the work environment, long hours, and even concern over adequate PPE and moral issues in recent months. This is directly linked to increased stress and symptoms of burnout. Research supports that mindfulness training can have significant positive impacts on job satisfaction, relationships with patients, co-workers and administration; as well as increased focus and creativity. Research confirms millennia-old reports of mindfulness as a powerful promoter of personal and interpersonal health.
