Summary

This study examines the relationship between mindfulness interventions and occupational health. Specifically, this study examines the effect of mindfulness interventions on work-related rumination, fatigue, and sleep quality. Using a sample of 118 participants, results suggest a significant relationship between the mindfulness intervention and decreased rumination, decreased fatigue, and improved quality of sleep. Results also suggest that the “acting with awareness” component of the mindfulness intervention was most influential. The study concludes that the findings have implications for employee recovery and the mindfulness literature.
