For the month of September the TRG RISE team curated a meditation series playlist. Each weekday for 4 weeks a new guided meditation was shared and employees were encouraged to take the time to listen and meditate. For many, this was their first time meditating so it was a great opportunity to come together as a group and share their mindfulness and meditation experience with colleagues.
We started off with 2 minute meditations, gradually building it up to 20 minute meditations by the end of the 4 weeks. These quick and powerful meditations are useful in day-to-day work and personal life, they included areas such as 'Dealing with Distractions', 'Quick Confidence', 'Finding Calm and Serenity', 'Preparing for a Meeting'.
The benefits of meditation
Meditating is a practice that we can all incorporate into our daily routines that can come with benefits such as:
- Building skills to deal with stress
- Improving self-awareness
- Reducing negative feelings
- Increasing creativity
- Improving patience and tolerance
Restoring your calm & inner peace
The group have learnt how to use the practice of meditation when they need it the most, from wherever they are — whether they're out for a walk, in the office, before a meeting or even in the middle of a difficult situation. Spending a few minutes meditating can reshape your thinking and restore your calm and inner peace.
