What is meditation?
In recent years, meditation became a mainstream modality option at work, to reduce stress and recharge vitality.
If you Google “meditation”, you come up with so many ways that use the term “meditation”. You may be confused, which one is good for you?
If you look into http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/meditation?s=t definitions, you get even more confused.
As a meditation teacher for over 25 years, I would like to describe MEDITATION- as process in bodymind (spirit), wherein, you perceive deep silence or emptiness, together with recharging vitality. Your whole being is in a state of love and attention, in the inner environment you create, while the streams of thoughts, emotions, memories, and imagination are passive and minimized.
Guided meditation can be a stage in the process of reaching meditation state of being, as described above.
Guided imagery or/and what is called “meditation music” may be very effective to reach relaxation. If you can train yourself, to embed and apply this relaxation mode, it is an important condition to reach meditative process.
What happens in a regular lunch break:
Hope you agree with me, that a lunch break, is a "space in time" in which, besides eating, you release the tension from the missions of ordinary work which usually include: talking over the phone, writing emails, meetings, writing a project, doing assignments in a teamwork and/or doing physical work. Literally – taking a break!
What most people do? They go with friends/colleagues to have lunch in a restaurant nearby, or eat lunch they brought from home, in the public space in their work-place. “You eat, while you chat small talk with friends /colleagues, you talk with your children/partner, or other people not necessarily, connected with work. Time just flows rapidly – and… back to work with a full belly :)”.
After lunch, most people are tired from the nonstop chatting they had, and they are fed-up. The second half of the day is usually, not as productive as the first one. People may seem as they are working hard… but, their performance is usually low… they are tired and not very focused.
Does this sound familiar...?
Is there another way that employees and business owners can be happy and benefit, lunch time and the aftermath of a lunch break?
