Be Mindful when working. We spend much of our life working and because of our busy, fast-paced lives we easily forget to be mindful. Define and prioritise one task at a time and fully attend to it. Break up the task into manageable bites. Make full use of the correct ‘tools’ at your disposal and trust in them to do the job they are designed for (computer keyboard, iron or dish cloth). Set yourself a realistic time frame to complete each bite and stick to it. Pause by placing your attention on your breath after each completion or when the going gets tough. Return your attention fully to the task when you get distracted. Acknowledge each completion as a mindful step. Try these hints whether you’re studying, working around the home, working for someone in a job or have your own business. This practice, in itself, can cultivate great focus and mindfulness.
