Do you want to incorporate meditation and yoga into your work day, but don’t know where to start? Here are some tips.
Find an empty room. Go in there and stretch or meditate once every day. It doesn’t matter how long you have, and I’m not expecting you to do a full yoga class in the janitor’s closet. Take even just one minute to be alone and do something to get your blood flowing and your mind clear.
Learn mudras. Mudras are yogic hand gestures that have many benefits. You can do one under your desk and nobody will know! I love the book, Mudras: Yoga in your Hands, by Girtrud Hirsh. In it, she describes the popular mudra, Jnana mudra: “Place the tip of the thumb on your index finger tip and extend your other fingers. Lay your hand on your thigh in a relaxed way. Do this with each hand.” (Mudras, 139)
