One-minute meditation: They’ll see it on your face

Posted on Apr 29, 2019

Enjoy this moment of office zen.

The setup

For 1 or 2 minutes, you’re going to relax every muscle above your shoulders. Set an audible timer, get comfy, then read on.

The meditation

Relax the top of your head, your forehead, your eyebrows. Relax your eyes: the outer corners of your eyes—the creases there. Your eyelids, the bridge of your nose.

Relax your left ear and your right ear.

Relax your nose and your nostrils. Relax your cheekbones and your cheeks, your jaw.

Relax your top lip and your bottom lip, your tongue. Relax your chin.

Relax your entire head.

Now relax the front of your neck, the back of your neck. The left and right sides of your neck.

Return your attention to the top of your head, and scan slowly down once more, relaxing every iota of tension you run into.

Continue breathing and relaxing until you hear your timer.
