Center for Contemplative Mind in Society reports that more than 20 years of empirical studies offers strong evidence that meditative and contemplative practices can aid in relieving the acute symptoms of fatigue and burnout, including depression and anxiety, and physiological symptoms such as insomnia and a weakened immune system.
