The Path to Peaceful Work
Like most people, you want your job to make you happy! Most of us want to feel energized and to be engaged in our work..To feel valued and supported by management and colleagues…To have opportunities to progress in your career…To have flexibility that allows for greater balance with other life needs and pursuits?
Sounds amazing, right?
But the reality is…
For all too many, Monday morning dawns with a touch of the blues or even downright anguish.
It can be stressful to move from two days of freedom to bracing for another workweek. Especially if your job is overly-demanding or unsatisfying.
Deficiencies in autonomy, dignity, opportunities for advancement, fair pay, health care benefits, job security, and more all contribute to feelings of frustration and disappointment.
Now layer on everyday obstacles and setbacks...Fold in office politics and gossip…Add a dash of endless, unrealistic workloads…And it’s no wonder people are unhappy at work.
Unfortunately, there’s a cost to all this stress.
Unmitigated stress at work can erode your confidence, your health, your relationships, and your capacity to accomplish objectives as well as your dreams and goals. Over the many years or decades you work, that can add up to an unhappy, unfulfilled life of regret. But it doesn’t have to be this way.
Positive stress can be good but negative stress is another thing. While no job is stress-free—even a dream job has its challenges and setbacks.
What makes the biggest difference between feeling frustrated or happy at work is how you respond to stressful situations.
It's Not Swallowing Your Frustration or Putting Up With Disappointment That Will Make You Successful at Work... It's Adding Mindfulness to Your Work Routine
Wild, we know. It sounds almost too good to be true.
Yet, studies show that mindfulness reinforces your caoacity to be peaceful and focused at work. To be resilient and move forward towards your goals—with ANY job you take.
The brain is able to achieve what is known as a " toward state" when mindfulness is practiced. In this state, we feel open-minded, curious, and interested in what we are doing. Knowing how to tap this powerful “toward state” helps us thrive in the workplace!
