While we’re not suggesting you jump onto your desk and meditate when things get stressful at work, you can however, take a few minutes to de-stress.. A few minutes of deep breathing will go a long way to calm your mind and re-energise your body.
– Sit securely in your chair, feet flat to the floor, hands on thighs. Ensure you’re sitting tall and not slouching.
– Close your eyes, taking your attention fully to your breath.
– Slowly inhale, completely filling the lungs, noticing how your ribs expand.
– Exhale long and slow, completely emptying the lungs of air.
Continue for 2-3 minutes.
Try it – you’ll feel better.
