You don’t need to look very far at SoftwareONE to notice people who are busy. Stress is visible and audible in our work spaces. Often it’s us ourselves transmitting stress out (and inwardly). Our jobs can be demanding, there’s no doubt.
As we continue to move through another busy year we invite you to practice what we believe to be, hands down, the most effective method for navigating stress. We invite you to practice yelling, swearing, and downing Snickers bars silence.
“When the session was over, people who had never meditated before were filled with a sense of calm. It helped them be more present at work and even carried forth to being more present with their families at home.”
Many of us in SoftwareONE personally practice at least 10 minutes of meditation each morning, more whenever possible. It’s become a life changing habit, bringing unexpected benefits like increased patience, peace, and resilience in our daily lives. If you’re interested in giving it a try, below are a number of great resources to help you get started. Happy meditating and keep us updated on your practice – we wish you a peaceful and productive work week ahead.
