01 Aug Be a superhero. Boost your productivity!
“Yes! That’s doable too,” says Rachel with a confident smile as she stares down at a list of proposals that have to be approved in between her annual sales meet presentation preps. But she is sure it wouldn’t be much of a hassle. You may wonder if she has a clock with over twenty-four hours or the super-human capability to handle stress, pressure and on-demand self-confidence, all in the span of a day. She doesn’t. In fact, she is very much like you and me. The difference in how she handles the situation is not her abilities but her approach and outlook towards life.
A free gift for everyone
All thanks to meditation, Rachel is able to take each new day and challenge within her stride and meet difficulties with a rather calm and composed demeanor. The same goes for any employee or homemaker who would love to get things done soon so that it is off their plate. But how does sitting in solitude, connecting with your soul and addressing your inner-self ever going to get things done? It requires a balance of time that you dedicate to your chores and to yourself. The power you derive from the cosmic energy that is accessible through meditation is incredible. It doesn’t matter what job function you perform. You may be a creative person who has a home setup that creates dream-catchers for a living or a hobby, leveraging the right-side of your brain, or maybe you are a financial accountant in a financial advisory firm, spending your days among spreadsheets and charts. The benefits of meditation are easily accessible to all.
Not another to-do task
Meditation doesn’t ask much but you can reap great benefits by practicing it regularly. It doesn’t require long hours of emptying your mind of the cares of the world but even a few minutes spent in absolute silence can show lasting effects in the way your mind and body responds to demanding situations. Half an hour of meditation in a day is ideal and if you do it early in the morning, you can be rest assured that you will have all the ammunition to face the rest of the day. The benefits of meditation can truly expand your capabilities as a human being by such an extent that you will feel like you are a super-hero who is endowed with supernatural powers. Meditation helps you clear your mind of all the unnecessary thoughts and keeps you focused on your task, thus boosting your productivity.
Achieve more than you ever imagined
Meditation has lasting benefits on one’s health as well as on their capabilities. By improving your concentration power and blood circulation to various parts of the body, you are now able to focus on things without letting in fatigue caused by the lack of these benefits. Another superpower you can derive through meditation is the slowing down of the process of aging. You can plan and strategize things better as your mind is clearer of all the clutter. Creative people will notice a significant improvement in their arts and this can in-turn lead to more opportunities to be explored. Those who deal with more analytical, left-brained functions will find that they can concentrate better, as if the capacity of their brains have been expanded.
Make time for yourself
Instead of looking at meditation as something that could consume all your free time, look at it as necessary time needed to spend time with yourself that can in turn enhance your outlook to life. Harvard Business Review agrees that finding time to meditate is all about resisting urges to do things that could be counter-productive to you. This depends on how you have crafted your day-to-day schedules and your work life balance. In all probability you may have stressful travel times and even tougher home-comings with children and chores catching up with you as soon as you step into the doorway. Meditating in this scenario could be impossible. Which is why, it is advisable to invest some amount of time to meditate in the morning, no sooner than you wake up. The results of the same could startle you and empower you to take on each passing day by the horns, because you will be the superhero you always dreamed of becoming.
