The new year has started on a more cautious note than the past year with people getting infected in huge clusters all over the world. However with the fatalities on a low count it is a solace that the situation is not all that alarming.
The happenings in the last 2 years have put enormous stress and anxiety on people of all ages. Living with the pandemic, which is slowly turning into an epidemic, has taught us the benefits of keeping our mind free of what is going around us – loved ones leaving this world, friends & relatives loosing their jobs, missing good times at the work place etc.
We are fully aware of what mindfulness is all about and we have the basic intrinsic ability to know how it would help us. But only our willingness to work on it to open our minds and to be unresponsive to outside events makes us feel inner peace and tranquility. It is a tough ask but practice makes an act perfect.
Let us get into a few minutes of meditation every day and enjoy its immense contribution to our work-life balance.
