Meditate As You Work

I am not an early morning person, hence most days, I don’t have time to meditate before I leave for work. Daily lunch meetings make it difficult to carve out time for meditation. These are the days I meditate as I work and it has helped me greatly. You too can try it.

Take a slow deep breath as you silently say AUM. Notice the air going through the nostril. Pleasantly notice your entire body relaxing as you breathe out. Think of the Divine within as you repeat this several times every hour. If your work environment permits, you can close your eyes too.

Once you start doing this, you will notice that you do not get tired, exhausted, and cranky as the day goes on. Your interpersonal skills improve because of the empathy emanating from the Divine within. You connect easily. Doubts disappear. Problems turn into opportunities. Your confidence soars. You go home with energy instead of exhaustion.

As I practice this, I feel buoyant. My neck tightness is gone. I am solving the tough patient management problems efficiently and effortlessly. Perennial headaches from the insurance companies don’t bother me. I am able to deal with them effectively. I am laughing with my patients. I am cracking jokes with my colleagues. Life is great!

So, go ahead, Meditate as you work. Take a slow deep breath as you silently say AUM. You can say Jesus or Allah or any other name based on your preference. You may not say any word if you so choose. Just focus on your soft breath. I use AUM as it is the primordial sound that is the name and also the form of the ultimate reality. It wakes up the Divine stationed within all of us and in the Universe. It connects me to that inexhaustible wealth of energy, love, and bliss.

Peace. Love. Bliss.

  1. What an excellent idea, to breathe AUM silently. That had never occurred to me. And it still manages to be an incredibly energising word. Your post is a timely reminder that we can meditate and relax at the busiest of times. Thank you.
