Vitality Boost for office life

What is mindfulness and how can you bring it into your daily life

„Mindfulness is the basic human ability to be fully present, aware of where we are and what we’re doing, and not overly reactive or overwhelmed by what’s going on around us.“

2 easy tips to bring more mindfulness in your everyday life:

1. Do one thing at a time. We have a tendency to aim for multi-tasking, to get more things done at the same time. However, multi-tasking doesn’t necessarily make us more efficient. It mostly makes our mind more busy, distracted and less focused. Therefore: Single-task, don’t multi-task.
When you’re making tea, just make tea. When you’re writing something, just focus on writing. When you’re taking a bath, just bathe.

2. Spend at least 5 minutes per day doing nothing. Just sit in silence. Slow down, become aware of your thoughts. Focus on your breathing deeply into your belly. Open your senses and notice the world around you. Become comfortable with the silence and stillness & actively rest just for 5 minutes every day.

Rising numbers of employees are suffering from elevated stress-levels, that lead to chronic exhaustion, poor digestion and a diminished quality of life. The practice of yoga offers us a variety of time-tested tools to better cope with stress and the challenging aspects of everyday life. In my Office Yoga classes & Corporate Mindfulness workshops I love to introduce easy & simple yoga and mindfulness practices that have long-lasting, positive effect.
