Practicing Mindfulness at Work

Are you looking for ways to be more mindful and present in the workplace? Practicing mindfulness at work takes on many different forms. When you encourage your employees to practice mindfulness at work, it can lead to a better workplace. At Sterling Wellness Solutions, we work with you and the other decision makers in your organization to build a culture based on health and wellness. One way we can help build up the wellness in your organization is by practicing mindfulness at work.

Be Intentional

If you’re going to do in the workplace, do it. Once you’ve put your mind to something, make sure it’s completed from start to finish or make sure there’s enough follow through from people around you. For instance, if you’re going to practice mindfulness at work, find ways you can stay in the now and make sure people understand what you’re trying to do. From there, make sure everything you do works to improve that goal.

Focus on the Present

It does no one any good to dwell on things that happened in the past or stress out about things can happen in the future. Instead, stay grounded in what’s happening in the now. This will help you see the bigger picture on things and prevent extra stress from entering your life. Focusing on the present can also help your overall wellbeing. Instead of worrying about things that happened in the past or things that could happen in the future, you’re only focusing on what you have control of. This can improve your emotional wellbeing.

Let Go of Things

If something goes wrong, let it go. It doesn’t do you and your overall health any good to hold onto things that are out of your control. If you don’t have the power to change what went wrong, you’ll just have to accept it and move on. Knowing what you can and can’t control is a form of mindfulness in its own sense. While it may be harder to let go of things, it’s something that you’ll get better at over time.

Avoid Multitasking

You may think you’re the best multitasker in the world. But at times, multitasking may impede your mindfulness. Instead, focus on one task at a time. Focusing on one task at a time will help you get more work done in the long run. Because you’re focusing on one thing at a time, things won’t fall through the cracks. It also makes work output more complete. But when you multitask, it increases the chances of the work you complete having missing information, which negatively impacts different workplace projects you take part in.
