Although for general wellbeing and sleep, mindfulness seems to be promising, employees experiencing burn-out or signs of depression do not profit from such a program. This results from a systematic literature study with meta-analysis, executed by researchers at the University of Tasmania who analysed 27 clinical trials with nearly 2000 participants.
