There is so much competing for our attention at life and work. We are overwhelmed, confused and at the verge of burnout. We go through the motions trying to get through the day, and start all over again tomorrow. When we go on with your life on exhausting auto-pilot, we are not aware of our surroundings and the people we interact with. We feel unfocused, detached and empty.
When we get caught up in the busyness of the world,
we lose connection with one another - and ourselves.
We just need to breathe...
Cultivating a meditation practice is one of the best proven ways to reduce stress and become more in touch with everything happening in your life, without becoming attached emotionally.
It is a practice that does not require much time or effort, it is available at any time and it is free. The concept is as simple as it is beautiful: Just sit still, focus on your breath, let thoughts come and go, and wait. Like murky water, being in stillness will let all the confusion and anxiety start to settle. In time, answers to your questions will arise from your core.
Mindfulness at Work
Work is an important part of our life. It's where we spend almost a third of our time, make connections and hopefully, carry out our purpose. We also carry of thoughts and feelings there. When we are connected with ourselves, we can connect with others at a true and human level. By adapting a meditation practice and mindfulness to our work, we transform the daily grind into daily bliss. It can help to identify the potential obstacles and gently bring our attention back to your goals and sense of purpose.
