Day 71 - Practical Positivity
I found an article I am going to share piece by piece for this week of Practical Positivity. It's from Huffpost written by Gina Soleil. Enjoy!!!
After the eye roll, "Yeah right, I don't have time to go to the bathroom let alone sit cross-legged saying OM."
"You've got to be kidding me. There's no way I can sit still that long."
"I have a thousand thoughts going through my mind. I'm not capable of just being."
I get it. Years ago when I was in the throws of corporate life, all the Zen people in my life kept telling me, "You just have to learn how to mediate and be present." I remember thinking, What the hell does that mean? And how do these Zen people have so much time to just sit around and meditate? I bought books, did yoga and started running in an effort to learn how to be present. It didn't work.
After years of trying to figure out this meditation thing, I got it. I finally understood what mediation was and how to make it happen in the busiest of workplaces. I figured out how to be Zen when the world around me was anything but Zen. I figured out the secret to being present, mindful and outrageously productive as a result.
Here's how to meditate at work...
By definition, meditation is simply time spent in quiet thought for the purpose of relaxation. Notice, the definition doesn't say time spent void of thought. When you meditate you're thinking quietly. You can mediate while walking to your next meeting, stepping outside for a quick break, standing by the copy machine or going to the bathroom. The key to meditation is to stay grounded and aware of your thoughts. Here are four easy ways to meditate at work.....
The first one will be shared tomorrow morning!!
Have a beautiful day!
