How to be Mindful at Work

How to be Mindful at Work

To be mindfully engaged is the most natural, creative state we can be in.     
Ellen Langler  

Mindfulness at work involves physical, mental and psychological well-being. Here are 7 ways to work mindfully:  

1.      Restful: Mindfulness at work starts with your restful sleep. Are you having enough sleep every night? A good night’s sleep is the natural way to renew your energy and start a new day fresh and alert.  

2.      Energetic: Are you taking care of your health? Do you exercise daily? It is the way to be fit and work calmly and mindfully. Daily challenges demand your energy and concentration at work.  

3.      Prepared: Are you ready to start a new day every day? Do you have a daily to-day list? It is a productive way to work mindfully one task at a time without worrying about anything else. It is also to avoid multitasking and rushing about getting things done and be stressful.

4.      Be early: It is a good idea to start work early if you have more things to do in a day. By working ahead of others you create an atmosphere for quality work because you can work with peace of mind without getting distracted or disturbed by others.

5.      Create a mindfulness environment: Is your place of work conducive to mindfulness? Can you work in peace? Is it bright enough for you to do work without getting sleepy? Is there a pot of plants on your desk to cheer you up? Plants promote positive energy flow.

6.      Work with your heart: Are you passionate about your work?  Your work is your reputation. Be interested in what you do so your will do best and gain the trust of others.  Taking pride in your work is to work with focus and attention.

7.       Creative attitude: Mindfulness at work is thinking about improvement, making changes for the better and getting more productive.  Be happy at work so that your mind is more relaxed to conceive new ideas. To get ahead is to avoid getting stagnant.

Be physically and mentally fit and psychologically positive to work mindfully.
