Be Mindful of Breathing | Meditation at Work

Meditation at Work

Whenever you are feeling stressed or anxious at work, take a moment and be mindful of your breath. It will bring you back into the present moment and relieve your mind of the thoughts and feelings that are causing the stress and anxiety. Train yourself to do this on a regular basis and you will begin to notice how much less you react to certain conditions at work. When this happens, work can become a more hospitable place to be.

Become aware of the sensations of breathing. We are simply observing the breath so there is no need to change your rate of breathing, however, if that occurs that is okay. Notice the sensations of the breath as the air enters and leaves your nostrils, or passing through the back of your throat, or feel your chest or belly rising and falling. Do this with a sense of gentle curiosity.

For an untrained mind, it is normal for your mind to wander. If your mind wanders to other thoughts, that is okay. As soon as you notice that your mind has wondered off, you are actually back in the present moment. Simply become aware of what you were thinking, gently label it as thinking, without judging yourself, then guide your attention back to feeling your breath. Each time you notice, all you need to do is bring it back. We are practicing a gentle training of the brain to remain in the present moment.

So much has already been spoken about meditation but I feel the key is making it a daily habit. I failed a lot of times - would meditate on and off. A meditation app called Aware helped me to make it a daily habit and since then I have really experienced the benefits of meditation - reduced stress & anxiety, better sleep and much more positivity in life!
