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.
