How to Bring Zen Back

You are telling your co-worker how excited you are about the upcoming movie premiere of your favorite book this Friday – you’ve been a fan since you read the trilogy and have been waiting for the past eight months since they announced the movie release date. As a true fan you’ve bought your tickets ahead of time, you and your girlfriends have planned a night of cosmos, girly chat, little black dresses and your chance to openly gossip about the hot actors in the movie. You are ready to have fun and decompress from the stress at work.

All of a sudden, your boss comes to you and tells you that the deadline for project B has been moved to Monday and that you’ll have to work over the weekend to get it done. This means, of course, that you will have to postpone your plans. Goodbye movie night, girls’ night out, hot actors. Hello rush, deadline, sleepless nights and frustration. Yeah, you feel angry that your boss unexpectedly sprung this on you and ruined your weekend plans.

Before you go and scream at his face telling him a number of reasons why working this weekend is a bad idea, try these tips to bring inner peace in a moment of “crisis”. This technique will take about 5 minutes and will bring Zen back into your life.

Smile and excuse yourself to go to the bathroom or your office, or simply step outside to a quiet place where you can be by yourself. Take 5 minutes to breathe.

Picture yourself in a happy place – it could be a sandy beach, a sunset in the mountains, the green forest, your bedroom, wherever it is that you feel safe and tranquil.

Inhale deeply through your nose and exhale completely through your mouth. Then, inhale through your nose for a count of 4; exhale through your nose for a count of 8. Repeat this while picturing your peaceful happy place – that place where only you and your inner self can reach.

After a series of repetitions (10-15) take a deep inhale and completely exhale the air – feeling your muscles relaxing, your face smoothing, and your spirit uplifting. Open your eyes, experience how the anxiety or stress are fading away, and smile.

You will realize you feel more at ease and in control of your emotions, ready to move into the task at hand. Next time you are in a situation that may seem overwhelming, allow yourself to stop and breathe. Your inner peace will reflect on anything you do and bring out into the world.
