Healthy Work Tip: Meditate in the Ladies Room

Meditating is not just for monks; it is a great way for us all to relieve a bit of the day's stresses. Finding 20-minutes in the middle of your busy work day can be quite a challenge, but you can still reap the benefits of shorter sessions. All you need is a quiet spot with no interruptions. For many of us, that means hitting the ladies room. Just like doing a few squats in the privacy of a restroom stall, you can take a few moments to close your eyes and think calming, happy thoughts.

If the ladies room doesn't work for you, sit in your car in the parking lot, under a tree outside your office, or on the rooftop of your building. Even just a few minutes of alone time will help relieve work or life stress, and it can also refuel your energy levels.

same with me -- there's also a Starbucks downstairs in our building, and a drug store right across the street, so sometimes I'll just pop out saying "I just need to go run a quick errand" and either walk around the block or just go to Starbucks and sit in one of the comfy chairs for a minute. you just need to step away for a bit to come back fresh.

I totally do this. There is only one other female at work, so I know the bathroom is safe when I'm falling asleep during the day I walk in and stretch and close my eyes and just relax... how strange.
