Do you want to be in control of your life and attain a sense of well-being, reducing your stress reactions to situations and people around you? Here’s an effective solution for holistic improvement that requires just about 20-30 minutes of your time in a day.

Meditation is being used by many to improve their productivity at work. There is evidence that meditation reduces stress and is associated with a sense of peace and physical relaxation. It also has cognitive and physiological benefits that help you throughout the day.

It is universally recognized that stress impacts our health negatively, leading to insomnia, anxiety, fear, cardiovascular disorders, autoimmune conditions, inflammation in the body and even cancers. Mental and physical demands at work lead to stress because we are constantly combating deadlines, competition, difficult co-workers and bosses and more at work. Meditation helps ease stress and improves the quality of your professional and personal life.

Here are some benefits you can amass by meditating every day.

  • Meditation improves your memory by removing the clutter in your mind and helps you focus on the problem at hand with immense concentration.
  • Everyone endeavors to reduce risk and have clarity while making important business decisions. If you meditate, you would have a calm state of mind that helps you analyze various options and make decisions without stress.
  • Meditators are known for their high EQ or emotional quotient as they are in synergy with their own emotions as well as those of others. They connect well with their colleagues and bosses.
  • If you meditate, you can focus on the current situation at work without distractions, as your brain is able to concentrate on the ‘here and now’ and your efficiency and effectiveness are maximized.
  • Meditation improves your listening skills. This helps you understand and empathize with others better. Co-workers feel that you care about their thoughts, and this enhances your interpersonal relationships at work.
  • Meditation gives you an aura of positivity that influences those around you and enables you to influence the emotions, thoughts, feelings and actions of others, thereby placing you in a position of leadership.
  • The greatest benefit you will reap by meditating regularly is finding a sense of purpose and value in life by connecting with your inner self. You strive to reach out to your higher self and develop a vision for your life. Whatever work you do will be more meaningful and valuable and you will find your deepest dreams and ambitions being fulfilled.
