Meditation is the art of relaxing your body, quietening the mind & awakening the soul. It also helps facilitates a deeper understanding of self and others.

The way we work affects both yourself and colleagues around you . Your work environment can be a place of fulfilment and creativity, but the increasing complexity and demands of the modern workplace can cause anxiety, stress and fatigue.

Meditation and mindfulness cultivate calm and clarity, offering an effective means of relieving stress and creating mental space. Freeing energy and increasing creativity and enjoyment, meditation can help to build confident decision making and effective action

 

Steps for starters

Step 1: Choose your preferred time of day
Find two days or more per week to practice meditation. An ideal meditation session lasts for about 15 minutes, but it takes just 2 minutes to steady your breathing and relax your mind.

MORNING

A great way to set the tone for the rest of your day before the chaos kicks off.

WHENEVER YOU FEEL STRESSED

Settle your mind and think clearly about next steps. Meditation can help you focus and feel less overwhelmed.

MIDDAY

Break up your routine and stretch out your body. You’ll feel more relaxed and open-minded for the rest of the day.

AT THE END OF THE WORKDAY

Unwind and transition out of work-mode, allowing yourself to truly enjoy time with friends and family.
Step 2: Find a physical space
You will need a quiet location free from interruption and distraction. Choose any room, no matter how small–an empty phone booth, quiet staircase, or unused conference room all work well.
Step 3: Set a timer
When you determine your preferred meditation duration, be sure to set an alarm on your phone or computer so that you’re not pre-occupied thinking about time during your session.
Step 4: Find a comfortable position
Meditation can be done sitting, standing, or lying down. Just be sure to commit to this position and remain as still as possible during your entire session.
Step 5: Take a deep breath and begin
Every week at Artsy, we focus on a different meditation theme or technique in our guided team sessions.
