This past August I started a Meditation Group at work and I’m so glad that I did. We meet 2-3 times a week and I’ve already seen a positive change in my colleagues. We meet for about 10 minutes in the morning, during their 1st break of the day, where I take them through a guided meditation (two of which are ones listed here in my blog: The Purple Sphere and The Waterfall).
Mediation is a fantastic practice to have, whether you’re able to do it daily or just a few times a week, it can lower stress, improve mood and balance out the emotions of the day. The best part about having a meditation group at work is that the positive vibrations spread throughout the office – happy employees make for a happy workplace! And it has been a joy watching the people I work so close with gain confidence in taking charge of their own happiness and wellbeing.
Some tips if you want to start your own group at work:
- Get Permission – I let my head of HR know my intention to start a group and his input on how it should be setup before I started posting flyers. Getting management on board with your idea will only add to your support.
- Keep Meetings Short – Be respectful of everyone’s time. Try to keep your meetings to 5-10 minutes; enough time to stay inside the limits of a 10-15 minute break.
- Talk About It! – This one is a biggie; make sure that you let people know about the group. What they don’t know won’t benefit them or you.
- Have Fun – Another big point. The group will feed off of your vibrations, and if you aren’t enjoying your time with the club, they won’t either.
If you’re not feeling comfortable leading the meditations, you can always download an app and play a recorded guided meditation that you all can follow. Some great apps with short relaxation meditations include: Simply Being and Breathe. You can also find some great meditation videos on YouTube to play as well – the point is to make it your own and have fun with it! Happy meditating, lovelies ❤
