Meditate At Work With These Easy Techniques
Meditation is nothing new yet it is one thing people don’t really indulge in, in this part of the world. And it doesn’t demand anything that you don’t already have in that exact moment.
The beauty and simplicity of meditation is that there’s nowhere to go, nothing to own, nothing to lose, and everything to gain by finding stillness during a chaotic day at work. In order to reconnect to the present moment during such days, try out any of these meditation techniques below:
BEFORE JUMPING INTO THE DAY’S TASK, TAKE FIVE MINUTES TO COUNT YOUR BREATHS.
As little as five minutes can make a big difference in your day. One of the easiest ways to engage in mindfulness meditation is to focus on the breath.
Sit comfortably. Close your eyes. Now take natural, even, rhythmic breaths. Slow and steady. While you’re breathing in, count one, when you breathe out, count two.
Once you get up to the count of 10, start over at one. This is a very simple meditation technique for beginners and individuals that want to develop or regain razor-sharp focus at work.
SAVOR EVERY BITE OF YOUR LUNCH
Instead of rushing through your meal, savor them; each bite. Notice the aroma of the food, how it looks, and its taste. Narrow your mind down to the awareness of what it feels like to chew and swallow. This type of meditation will help you reset and re-focus for the second half of your day.
STEP OUTSIDE, TAKE A REFRESHING WALK
Sitting for long hours at work can be unhealthy. Take a break and get outside of the office for a bit. Begin walking slowly; synchronize your breath with each step.
This type of active meditation is not only relaxing; it can help you release unnecessary tension from your mind and body.
