Recently there has been a strong focus for the Mindfulness in a workplace.
I offer Mindfulness classes to the employees at The City Hall in London to help improve their wellbeing and productivity.
I lead a mindful walk which is conducted in silence. In our busy world filled with activities, noise and other distractions people find it difficult to be still, especially in the company of other people. We feel the urge to chat in order to avoid so-called “uncomfortable silence”. We may even believe it is impolite to be silent when we are in the company of others. I invite you and challenge you to experience silence as you have maybe never experienced it before!
Take a break from your daily routine! Relax, breath, replenish your energy!
How to practice walking meditation
Walking meditation is a way to practice moving without a goal or an intention. Mindful walking simply means walking while being aware of each step and of our breathing. It can be practiced anywhere, whether you are alone in nature or with others in a crowded city. You can even practice mindful breathing and walking meditation in between business appointments or in the supermarket.
Mindful walking allows us to be aware of the pleasure of walking. Placing our footsteps one after the other slowly and in silence, we can create joy with each step. We can keep our steps slow, relaxed and calm. There is no rush, no place to get to, no hurry. Mindful walking can release our worries and help bring peace into our body and mind.
The benefits of mindfulness include:
- Gaining a new perspective on stressful situations
- Building skills to manage your stress
- Increasing self-awareness
- Focusing on the present
- Reducing negative emotions
