Mindfulness @ Work : Simple Meditations and Practices for a More Stress-Free and Productive Working Life
Short and simple meditations that can be used throughout the working day to reduce stress, strengthen focus and concentration, enhance working relationships and improve the quality of your day. By applying the principles of mindfulness to our working lives, we can become aware of our habitual negative thoughts and behaviours and learn to recognize and manage the warning signs of stress, which is an all-too-common part of modern life. The rise of digital media means that many people never really "switch off" from work and the culture of presenteeism means many people spend more time at work than ever before. Many people spend a lot of time either ruminating on previous problems or worrying about future work-related issues. Mindfulness expert Anna Black's simple but effective practices will help you to perform well, minimize stress, and be more productive at work. Anna's suggestions are applicable to both office-based workers and those who work from home and she covers a range of topics including working mindfully with others, paying mindful attention in meetings and using meditation to cope with stressful situations.
