Abstract

Mindfulness has recently become a mainstream topic that can yield potential health benefits that allows it to become a versatile & valuable tool. Specific areas of possible outcomes include: improving wellbeing, heightening performance, acting as a stress-coping mechanism, improving relationships, and so forth. Research in this area to provide evidence is still relatively new. Therefore, our organizational psychology & wellness research group aims amongst other research interests to continue to expand the existing literature by examining how mindfulness can improve wellness and lead to higher engagement outcomes. Wellness and engagement have become an increasing concern in our modern society regarding how it can be enhanced, which is why our research study concentrates here. The presentation will dig deeper into the current literature surrounding these three areas of interest. A theoretical model for the basis of our research will stem from the job-demands resources model. Intent to discuss a research proposition for the upcoming year will follow detailing our hypotheses, current research methods, and growing research design.
