As a business owner you will face numerous obstacles that will introduce stress into your life. When you mediate you are able to become stress-free and you can relax more when it is time to handle tough situations in your business. Your employees will notice the change in you and they may become motivated to do their best because you are offering more encouragement and respect to them.
Meditation on any level has been known to help people from all walks of life relieve the stress of everyday life. Maybe you don’t believe in this kind of thing, you’ll never know until you try. Or maybe you are a veteran at meditation and your spiritual values come from following a divine teacher such as Jagatguru Kripaluji Maharaj. In any case, all steps to begin your inward journey with meditation starts with peace and quiet.
The first step is to locate a quiet setting for the mediation and this could be at a public park, in the car, in your backyard or in a closet in the house. After this you should breathe slowly and naturally, and a little positive self-talk is also good to do during meditation. Avoid other distractions by focusing mostly on your thoughts during the meditation. Here are other ways to meditate as a business owner.
Meditation While Walking
When you decide to meditate while walking, choose a long walkway in a park that does not have structures in your way that would cause you to fall. Check the weather before going on the walk because you want to walk when the weather is not dangerous. You then want to look down at your legs and toes as you walk and deeply reflect on your current problems and solutions to those problems. Also use this time to think about your accomplishments, future goals and strengths.
Meditation and Fasting
If you hold to a religious belief and you want to grow in your walk with God through meditation, you can also go on a fast to improve spiritually and reflect more on God’s power and authority in your life. Spend a few minutes each day in prayer to God and ask that He would reveal His will to you through your Bible study and through various circumstances. As you pray consider sins you committed during the day and repent of them before God. Then ask for help in changing your mindset and turning from the sins permanently.
Mantras for Meditation
While you meditate, use inspirational mantras and recite them as a way to remain positive about your business and yourself as a person. You can find books that have mantras in them at bookstores, online and at natural health stores. You can also create your own mantras by writing a few of them based on your situation.
Read Personal Testimonies
Another way to meditate effectively is to read the testimonies of others in the business world who overcame tough circumstances through growing spiritually with meditation. If you notice certain meditation practices they used and have never used before, incorporate those meditation techniques into your routine.
Finally, you should have meditative music that is soothing so you will be able to focus on what you are meditating about. As you hear the music and meditate, write down some of positive things you experienced during the day and write down the things you are grateful for such as your business’s success, supportive spouse and family, and the health you have.
