Focus, daydreaming, emotion and more steps to accepting calm into your life
Time Out Abu Dhabi staff
1 Focus on one task While multi-tasking might be all over your CV, it’s not most appropriate for inner peace. Aim to efficiently perform one task at a time.
2 Go for a walk You might find it a bit of a challenge to find a green patch in Abu Dhabi, but when you do, go for a wander.
3 Say om Many researchers have shown that practising daily meditation can boost wellbeing and improve cognitive function. If you can’t get yourself to the meditation pillow, then just sit still and focus on your breathing for 20 minutes on a daily basis. You’ll start to notice a difference.
4 Let yourself daydream Letting your mind wander might sound counter-intuitive, but finding that happy medium between the present moment and mind-wandering thoughts is the ultimate goal.
5 Accept every emotion Don’t try to resist or control your feelings. If you’re feeling sad, happy, tired or anxious, embrace these emotions and let them co-exist with each other.
