Reduce work stress with meditation & yoga

meditation

For some people, the best part of yoga class is at the end when everyone takes a few minutes to meditate. You close your eyes, focus on your breathing and clear your mind of your daily worries. And when you leave class, you feel mentally lighter and freer. 

That's because meditation isn't just the perfect way for your body to wind down after working on your strength, flexibility and balance in yoga class. Meditation can help your mind relax as well. While some yogis may get into the practice for the physical benefits, it's impossible to ignore the mental and emotional benefits.

If work stress has been getting you down, try on-site yoga classes and meditation classes at your Boston office or NYC luxury condo. Check out this article from Forbes about how to ease work stress with meditation and more.

Try mindfulness-based breath awareness meditation to help you let go of your wandering mind and come back to the present moment and a sense of calm. We don’t often realize that the skills we are building while we meditate are actually integral life skills that can help us better manage stress and anxiety.

According to Corporate Wellness Magazine, adding meditation classes to your workspace and encouraging your staff to prioritize mindfulness can have far-reaching effects. That's because people show signs of being more focused and relaxed when they meditate regularly. 

"Meditation can also be incorporated into corporate wellness programs along with other elements promoting a healthy, holistic and productive lifestyle. Its personal benefits can certainly be extended to the work environment.

A study found that mindfulness can be beneficially associated with employee well-being in terms of emotional exhaustion, job satisfaction, and psychological need satisfaction. Positive effects were also seen with job performance, as measured by task performance, organizational citizenship behaviors, and deviance. These results suggest a potentially important role of mindfulness in the workplace. "
