Thich Nhat Hanh's Tips for Bringing Mindfulness to Work


  • Start your day with 10 minutes of sitting in meditation.

  • Take the time to sit down and enjoy eating breakfast at home.

  • Remind yourself every day of your gratitude for being alive and having 24 brand-new hours to live.

  • Try not to divide your time into "my time" and "work." All time can be your own time if you stay in the
    present moment and keep in touch with what’s happening in your body and mind. There’s no reason why your time at work should be any less pleasant than your time anywhere else

  • Resist the urge to make calls on your cell phone while on your way to and from work, or on your way to appointments. Allow yourself this time to just be with yourself, with nature and with the world around you.
  • Arrange a breathing area at work where you can go to calm down, stop and have a rest. Take regular breathing breaks to come back to your body and to bring your thoughts back to the present.

  • At lunchtime, eat only your food and not your fears or worries. Don’t eat lunch at your desk. Change environments. Go for a walk.

  • Make a ritual out of drinking your tea. Stop work and look deeply into your tea to see everything that went into making it: the clouds and the rain, the tea plantations and the workers harvesting the tea.

  • Before going to a meeting, visualize someone very peaceful, mindful and skillful being with you. Take refuge in this person to help stay calm and peaceful.

  • If you feel anger or irritation, refrain from saying or doing anything straight away. Come back to your breathing and follow your in- and out-breath until you’ve calmed down.

  • Practice looking at your boss, your superiors, your colleagues or your subordinates as your allies and not as your enemies. Recognize that working collaboratively brings more satisfaction and joy than working alone. Know that the success and happiness of everyone is your own success.

  • Express your gratitude and appreciation to your colleagues regularly for their positive qualities. This will transform the whole work environment, making it much more harmonious and pleasant for everyone.

  • Try to relax and restore yourself before going home so you don’t bring accumulated negative energy or frustration home with you.

  • Take some time to relax and come back to yourself when you get home before starting on household chores. Recognize that multitasking means you’re never fully present for any one thing. Do one thing at a time and give it your full attention.

  • At the end of the day, keep a journal of all the good things that happened in your day. Water your seeds of joy and gratitude regularly so they can grow.

Start your day with 10 minutes of sitting in meditation.
Haha I always do that, minus the sitting position part. It's called hitting a snooze button and lingering in bed, I always end up falling asleep though.
Do you find it easy to get up in the morning?

Not really. I am a professional snoozer. Flattered Typically I have to set it to at least half an hour before I want to really get up, that way I trick myself into thinking I've slept in.

Do we have any brisk risers on here? Razz

Thanks, PR. Smile It looks like a cute movie (except for all the dead fish and octopuses Sad ), and guess what, that's Beethoven's 7th symphony as the soundtrack. nodding

I would hate to think I am not an amateur. An amateur is one who loves what he is doing. Very often, I'm afraid, the professional hates what he is doing. So, I'd rather be an amateur. - Yehudi Menuhin (one of the greatest violinists of all time)
