Practising mindfulness at work

Would you spend a few minutes each day practising mindfulness each lunchtime at work if someone told you you’d be more productive in the afternoon?

I’m hoping you answered yes to this?

I have been very strict at work since I changed jobs.  I book out 30 minutes of my diary each day to eat and practise mindfulness techniques whilst listening to music. The canteen is full of chattering people and I cannot stand to sit in there as the noise makes my head spin,but when I pop on headphones 🎧 I love it.  I get totally caught up in the moment.  I savour my food taking it real slow and mindfully eating.

I also watch other people eat, examine what they eat, look out of the window and watch nature in full effect.  I don’t day dream and I don’t spend my lunch break on my phone.  Maybe I might update my FB page but nothing more?

Before this latest fibro attack brought me to my knees and I had to step away from my job I never really had a lunch break.  Since I started to have one I cannot believe how much more productive I feel in the afternoon.

Try eating mindfully; savour every mouthful of your lovely healthy organic food, take your time.  It can take me 15 minutes to eat my lunch minimum.  You will walk away so chilled out!

Hi there, I am a busy mum who had found a new lease in life by completing my diploma in Hypnotherapy and NLP and led a successful part-time online hypnotherapy business, preparing personalised online recordings and using tried and tested NLP techniques as homework for my clients. I found out I had advanced degenerative disease in my spine over 10 years ago and then spondyliothesis 4 years ago. 2 of my lumbar discs collapsed and I needed a fusion in March 2014, but left the other collapsed disc in place. It was then that things got really weird. It took me over 2 years to get diagnosed with Fibromyalgia which I developed after the surgery and that is when the fun started........ I now have Osteoarthritis in my neck and have another 2 discs that are collapsing into my spinal column. I am considering having a double fusion to reduce the pain.
