Regardless of which field you’re in, being a working professional can take a toll on your physical, mental, and spiritual being through many ways.
For individuals who work at an office, it’s easy to feel bounded by expectations and objectives. When you’re glued to a computer for hours on end, you can be closed off energy channels unknowingly throughout the day.
People often think that spiritual practices can only be done in the confines of your own home or in yoga studios, but this isn’t the case. Nurturing the spirit, even within a working environment, can do wonders for your creativity and productivity. Additionally, meditation and other similar activities are effective ways to hone your focus and efficiency in everything you do.
If you want to avoid burnouts and keep yourself inspired at work, there are steps you can take to bring spirituality into your day-to-day activities. It’s easy to achieve with a little dedication, and it’ll go a long way for your professional outlook.
While spirituality is for all people regardless of their beliefs, it’s best to keep in mind that what’s effective for you may not be effective for every person. Value other people’s wellbeing and make sure that your intentions are grounded in positivity and safety for yourself and those around you.
Engage in Prayer
It may be easier said than done, but speaking out to the Universe is one of the easiest ways to enrich your inner life and make you feel more connected to your goals. Attracting the right kind of energy into your workplace can help you achieve each of your objectives, big or small.
You can say a simple prayer whenever you feel like you need an extra boost, either before you head to work or as you sign off for the day. It doesn’t have to be complicated, either. Your prayer can be as short and sincere as this:
Please, Universe, guide me through the day. Show me how I can fulfill my purpose and help others around me.
Close your eyes and try to find some peace and quiet. Imagine a reality where you’ve already achieved your goal, and it’ll make a huge difference in how you approach every task.
At work, it’s not uncommon for people to feel nervous or anxious, whether it be because of a tricky workplace situation or an overwhelming task. You can definitely sense when these hurdles are present, so it’s worth setting aside some time to address them. Once you’ve done all you can to make sure the situation is taken care of, it’s time to trust the Universe and peacefully let go.
Surrendering isn’t about forgetting everything and letting fate take the wheel. A lot of our anxiety can come from harbored fears and expectations from past experiences and threats that aren’t necessarily present anymore, yet still hold us back. Surrendering to the Universe can free you from this and help you become your best self, and sometimes all it takes is a few minutes of meditation.
Before you go to work or start on your tasks for the day, find a quiet spot where you can close your eyes and invite calm and peace to flow into you. Trust in yourself and your abilities in order to feel at ease with all the responsibilities you carry.
Open Up Your Surroundings
We take for granted how much our immediate environment can affect our wellbeing, but luckily, there are plenty of ways to add comfort and aesthetic to a room, making the occupants more susceptible to productivity.
If it's possible, you can apply a few simple feng shui techniques to immediately improve your office, which is a good way to make your surroundings support your health and spirituality. The two main things to make sure of is that your space has clean air, which you can achieve with a few low maintenance plants and a good source of light. Beyond that, you can also look into finding your office’s feng shui commanding position.
Wall plaques that attract good energy or encourage people to pray and reflect can be a good addition to any room. You can also add an animal statue to your desk, as animals and their long history on Earth have been said to represent certain fortunes and bring guidance to whoever meditates to them.
More than anything, having a clean and tidy work environment is key for productivity at work and spirituality. It’s easy to be swept away by the stress and fatigue brought on by your workplace, but keeping an organized, clean, and clutter-free space can go a long way in making you feel more at ease and in control.
