In the search to do better and be more productive, it’s easy to get overwhelmed. Sometimes you can’t just sit down and find a spot to meditate. I tend to be surrounded by people or noisy equipment/machinery so it’s tough to find peace and concentrate on your breath. So what do you do when you feel the need to catch your breath or sort your thoughts?
I recommend you just get away from people. Anything people do whether it’s sitting quietly tapping at their computer or having a random conversation with somebody else is a distraction. Just get away and take a breath by yourself. No need to meditate. Just let your mind think freely. Maybe something else is bother you. Journaling might be helpful but I find it’s best to just go sit somewhere and look over a leaf or just watch traffic run by. It’s important you take the time to decompress when you can, even if it’s just to roll a leaf between your fingers for a few minutes before getting back into it.
