In digital world that we are living in now, boundaries and roles of work have intruded into the personal life of an employees, and a lot of them are juggling to achieve balance and their wellbeing (with life, optimism, and overall well-being). The principal aim of this project is to trace a path between the works vs. mindfulness perspectives of employees in an(y) organisation. A cross sectional descriptive exploratory study of employees was conducted to assess impact of stress on the perception of work life balance and if and how mindfulness can mediate between these two. Data analysis reveals that mindfulness mediates between stress sand work-life balance and there is a significant impact of mindfulness on work-life balance.
