Mindful @ Work?
At church on Sunday Rev. Paul talked about being mindful...it has been the theme all month, but this is the first time I went for the month...can't wait until the other Sunday talks are put online so I can listen to them.
So, I am sitting here...got to work 30 mins early since our train was there in time to catch the 6:33 DART. I like getting to work that early...it gives me time for me...I was sitting here with my time just thinking...I do that way to much...but anyway, I was reflecting on what Rev. Paul had talked about and was wondering how I can be mindful in a job that can be so hectic and draining. Do I take mini breaks to recenter myself? How do you keep other peoples junk at work from getting in your head?
I don't have the answers, but I am going to start working toward this and look for some books that might help. I really think if I could be more mindful at work I would be happier and a better manager. I have a lot of employees that depend on me and I just don't feel I give them all they need and I am sure part of that is that I am not mindful enough at work.
So, stay tuned...I'll share my insights over the next weeks...
