Banish Office Stress with Meditation

 

An office mediation because we all have one person in our work family we’re proud we haven’t killed yet. And because why not make your lunch break productive. All you need is two minutes even if the only break you have is a bathroom break. Take time for self-care; you’re worth it!

Keep reading for simple meditations you can do anywhere, even at work.

a. In a seated position, place palms on your knees or in any mudra you choose. Inhale and exhale deeply to center yourself. Imagine a place you feel safe and connected to the purpose you serve. The image can a hobby you enjoy after work or the success of an upcoming meeting. Make it personal to you.  Use the image to empower you, encourage you on days when you feel less than motivated.

b.Start by recalling a situation from today where you’d like a do-over.  With each breath immerse yourself in the lesson (offer a prayer on what the lesson is if you’re not sure). Give yourself over to God’s amazing grace with each breath. Embrace the millions of moments you have to respond in a fashion suited to who you are in Christ, not to who you are in when ruled by emotions.

c. You just left work and, like me, dreading traffic. Before you pull out and embrace the rage take calming deep breaths. Write your inner script so when you get cut off your not so tempted to scream how stupid other drivers are. Create an example in your mind and visualize some reactions that aren’t rooted in frustration and anger. As your driving, observe the amount of tension in your hands, hips, and face. Intentionally let go of the tension with deep breathes. Compare this drive home to that of yesterday’s- see any difference?

Blessing and Peace- Randa 🙂
