About this study
This study aims to establish whether brief daily meditation will positively impact physicians’ emotional buoyancy and overall well-being. Secondary outcomes include perceived happiness, physician burnout, and physical activity/sleep quality to be measured by an activity monitor. The latter will be measured to provide a more comprehensive picture of physician well-being. This pilot study also seeks to establish the feasibility of using the Muse™ device to assist novice meditators in building and strengthening their practice.
