Spend 3 minutes meditating every day
Meditation doesn't have to be incredibly deep to be effective. Find a nice peaceful place,sit on the ground, close your eyes, and just ‘be’. Don’t think about work,don’t think about money—don’t think about anything but the here and now. If you can do this once every day, you will be amazed at the difference that it can make.
Keep things in perspective
Getting insulted by your boss can be very hurtful and discouraging, but keeping things in perspective can help to neutralize feelings of anger or resentment—both of which contribute to a life of anxiety and negativity. If your boss is a jerk to you, try to think about his life and why he might be acting the way he is.Maybe he hates is job, or maybe he had a fight with his wife this morning.Maybe he doesn't know how to cope very well and just takes it out on others instead of dealing with it in a more positive way.
This doesn't justify his negative actions, of course… but it can help you to deal with it in a more positive way.
Sit down and clear your mind
When you get the chance, try to sit down for a few minutes and just ‘unwind’ from the stresses of your day. If you hurry and rush along from point A to point B, you might start to get overwhelmed and not even realize it. At least once every few hours you should try to sit down, take a deep breath, and let your mind recover before you move onto the next thing. This is different from meditating in the sense that you should try to do it at least once per hour. It can take as little as 30 seconds for it to be effective.
