- How do you meditate in a stressful noisy environment?
- Has meditation allowed you to learn something new about yourself?
- How do you remember to meditate when your routine is inconsistent? I’ve gotten into the habit of meditating at night, but I think I’d really benefit from meditation at some point during the day. I can’t seem to find a consistent point in time that works in my schedule. Which makes it hard to remember/implement.

If you want, you can discover how you are using this challenge to support your self-limiting beliefs… it only takes a second… everyone lives their fears. Accept that you have filled yourself to wholeness with the love and compassion that is limitless and always within you. Accept you were using the situation to confirm your own self limiting fears. Now, go out and create a positive outcome using your whole self 👍😀
Alternately think about 5 things you are touching, smelling, hearing or seeing. This brings you back into your body and out of your brain, grounding you so you can think instead of just react.
Remember to breathe any time you feel anxious.
Do a breathing exercise where you try to think of nothing but your breath.
If you'r mind wonders, that's okay, just try refocus on your breath when it does.
Count the breaths.
Breath in is 1 breath out is 2 and so on until you reach 10 , then repeat.
About 3 of thouse should start to help.
Prepare a cup of tea.
Take a moment to meditate.
Take 5 deep breaths using the 4×4 method. 4 seconds inhale, hold 4 seconds, exhale 4 seconds, hold 4 seconds.
Take a walk around the office and glance at coworkers observing their mood. There is probably at least 1 who will look more visibly frustrated than you feel. Be grateful you are not THAT frustrated.
I find a good one is having a peaceful picture or mindful quote as a thing to look at, contemplate and slow down either on the background of my computer or pulled off to the side and open in its own window.
Otherwise, always taking a deep cleansing breath any time even the littlest stress comes about. That deep belly breath is always good at calming the Parasympathetic Nervous system down (your flight or fight system that gets activated when under stress or duress) as well as triggers the consciousness to actively try to remain objective and take a step back.
Thirdly, taking a minute to step our side or open a window and breath in fresh air. It does wonders. Go outside, even if it’s for 20 seconds, you’ll feel fresh and rejuvenated and that brings down your stress level. Hope it helps! All the best!
