Has anyone ever told you to take a breath at work? If it was received well, you might already have an idea that meditation and the workplace are indeed an ideal match. If it wasn’t received well, welcome to your salvation, or at least one you can give a go.

There are many ways to find your meditative groove. It can be a breathing practice, intentional playlist, or in tandem with yoga. Ways to benefit from meditation don’t conclude at method, however.

Why in the Workplace?

Meditation can benefit many aspects of life. It employs physical and mental techniques to become, unbecoming, and overcome. All of these are necessary for the workplace.

Need more reasons? Here are some reasons to meditate in the workplace. It can be done anywhere, is free, settles the mind, boosts creativity, and is a safe and healthy coping mechanism.

Try addressing these common workplace challenges with a little meditation next time you feel like throwing your hands up.

1. For Being Late

Being late is typically anything but fun. For those days that seem to be relentlessly unlucky, find meditation. Instead of showing up to work in a frenzy when you’re already late, take measures to calm and center yourself before taking on the remaining challenges of the day.

2. For Staying Late

Need to stay late despite plans to do otherwise? Staying late and extending work, while a positive experience at times, can usually be a stressful ordeal. Getting up, stretching, and grounding yourself through meditation will help you to power through the extra time in no time.

3. For Holding Your Tongue

We all have moments where staying quiet about our feelings is best. Whatever the reason for withholding, take a moment to check-in with yourself. Meditation can help you to do this.

Take a moment to make sure that you are merely adhering to workplace politics and practices, and not working in a toxic environment. There is a difference between the two, and meditation can help to make it clear which is before you.

4. For Surrendering

First, you’ve got your everyday work challenges, then you’ve got your long-term work challenges, and every little bit in between. There are so many aspects of working that cannot be controlled, and if you maintain the limiting belief that you can, you might end up driving yourself crazy.

Use meditation as a means to find the courage to overcome your instinct to control and instead surrender to what it means to flow and be.

5. For Focusing

Do you have a billion things on your mind at work, both related and unrelated? Join the masses, friend. When distraction begins to gnaw in the workplace, use meditation to find a way to become and stay focused.

Silence the endless stream in your mind by putting a forceful stop with a gentle handclasp. This can be especially useful in cases where you are required to switch gears in terms of responsibility or pace. Don’t get sucked into stress, meditate instead.

Finding your footing when having to deal with work is an ongoing challenge, but so is meditation.
