Mindspace Nov.5: Limitless work, limited lifetime
Limitless work, limited lifetime
Everything is about our mind, and a healthy mind matters most. However, when we are in a specific environment or situation, it is so easy to get trapped in all kinds of influences and triggers. This also applies to our working environment; we have so much work to do, so many plans to make, so many things to rush out, and we end up in stress, anxiety, burnout, you name it. It is not something we want, but we just cannot stop, can we?
This Mindiverse mindfulness session will be dedicated to this challenge that almost everyone in the workplace is facing. In this mindfulness session, we will sit down to meditate to observe our mind and strike up a philosophical discussion over this issue to raise awareness, which most people are lacking but in dire need of.
The work is always there, but our lifetime is limited. We are all humans and we should live a life as humans, shouldn’t we? Striking a balance between work and life requires wisdom and mental skills, that’s where mindfulness practice comes in.
The session welcomes everyone, regardless of your gender, background and title, who wants to pursue spiritual growth and a healthy mind.If you are curious about mindfulness, please check the resource page
