How To Maintain Your Inner Peace At Work

How To Maintain your Inner Peace At Work

Work is not a fun activity – that’s what makes it work. It can be stressful, it can be draining, and it can overwhelm you if you let it. And even you lucky people who are completely dedicated to your work know that it can take its toll. Maintaining your inner peace, staying Zen and relaxed at the office – it ain't easy. However, just because it’s difficult, doesn’t mean it’s impossible to do.

Whether you love your work, or just try to get through the day, know that you can always minimize the stress you suffer at your nine to five. Below you can find some tips on how to do just that.

Live in the moment

This may be difficult, but try to find one certain, specific moment, and live in it. There must be part of your work that you enjoy, part of your day where you can find peace. By enjoying the here and now, you will not only be better at your job, but you will also notice the day just runs buy. If you truly find your work to be a chore, finding peace and focus in the small moments can give you some reprieve.  And of course, the standard tried and true activity is meditation to help you make this easier. There are many benefits of meditation, and the best part is that you can do it anywhere, even during your lunch break, for five minutes.

And for all you high-achievers out there, understand that taking a second to enjoy the moment is important for you too. You can get all the achievements in the world, the greatest success, the ultimate praise. However, why let it pass without taking a second and enjoy it? We’re not saying you should rest on your laurels. What we are, however, saying is that spending some time basking it can do you some good.

Be mindful of your triggers

Be mindful of your triggers

There is a difference between avoiding confrontation, and choosing your battles. Your triggers should fall into the latter category. Namely, we all have our own issues, challenges, and general drama. If also have a limited amount of willpower and self-control. And the best way to preserve this willpower is to use it only for the things that matter. In practice, it goes something like this.

Avoid that annoying colleague that simply drains the life out of you whenever you talk. He or she may be excessively negative, a black cloud of self-pity and depression. Or, this person may simply be boring, lacking any semblance of social skills, and not even having a clue what personal space means.

So, avoiding situations like these is vital. Unless you have to do something that “triggers” you for your work, try to avoid it. If you don’t have anything to gain, if you don’t want to “test your willpower”, just ignore it.

Practice acceptance

Bad things happen, it’s part of life. Furthermore, your boss, your manager, your annoying co-worker – they are all fallible human beings. So it’s quite normal for things to happen, for somebody to blow a fuse, to send a terse word your way, an unthinking mean look. Sometimes it’s just ok to accept that they have a bad day, and not let it get to you.

But, let there not be a misunderstanding – if somebody violates your space, if you are hurt in any way at any moment, you have the full right to contact professional work injury lawyers and handle the situation. Our advice is more about letting the little things go

Furthermore, your computer will definitely shut off at an inopportune moment, your phone battery will run out, and you will spill coffee on your favourite shirt at least once in the office. You can rage and rave and cry about it, or you can clean yourself up and get on with your day. Don’t dwell on things, practice acceptance.

Don’t bring your work home

Don’t bring your work home

Finally, do not bring your work home, if you can. If you have to work a bit longer, finish the job you have at the office, do some overtime. You want to keep your home sacred and separate from your job. Your home should be a place of comfort, and a place where you can recharge. Things like getting quality sleep, eating well, and working out, these are all vital for both professional success and general well-being. Bringing your work with you will ruin this balance, it will mess with your head, and won’t allow you to relax.

Conclusion

Whether your job is your passion, something you dreamed about your entire life, or just something to pay the bills, you need to find some peace there. Obsessing over it, getting stressed out by the job will just make your life that much more difficult. So, avoid bringing your work home, if you can. Then, be mindful of your triggers, and avoid them if you truly have nothing to gain from them. Finally, accept the thing you cannot change, and change the things you can.
