Ways to Manage Stress
Learning techniques to meditate is one of the great ways to manage stress & find relief from your top stressors.
I am always looking for free guided meditations and this Kindness Meditation from Ed and Deb Shapiro is one of my favorites. As salespeople we are under a lot of stress that we put upon ourselves or is put upon us by our sales managers. Learning ways to manage stress is essential.
There are many techniques you can use to meditate. I like this one because I can print it out & use it whenever I need it.
Meditate - Techniques to Relieve
Spend a few minutes on each stage of this practice.
Settle your body in an upright and seated posture.
Take a few minutes to focus on the natural flow of your breath, while bringing your attention to the heart space in the center of your chest.
1. Now either repeat your name or visualize yourself in your heart so that you can feel your presence. Hold yourself there, gently and tenderly. Release any tension on the out-breath and breathe in softness and openness with the in-breath.
"May I be happy, may I be peaceful, may I be kinder."
Feel a growing sense of friendliness and kindness for yourself.
2. Now direct your kindness toward the person you are having a hard time with, where communication is not easy or there are misunderstandings.
Keep breathing out any resistance and breathing in openness, as you hold this person in your heart and repeat:
"May you be happy, may you be peaceful, may you be kinder."
No need to get caught up in recalling the details of the story. Hold them gently and tenderly, wishing them wellness and happiness.
3. Now expand your kindness outward toward all people, in all directions. Open your heart to others, whoever they may be, silently repeating:
"May all beings be happy, may all beings be peaceful, may all beings be kinder."
Let go of any prejudice or resistance. Feel kindness radiating out from you in all directions. Breathe in kindness, breathe out kindness.When you are ready, take a deep breath and gently open your eyes, letting the kindness in your heart put a smile on your lips.
Learning techniques to meditate is an essential part in finding ways to manage stress. I know my life as a sales person and manager is hectic and crazy. Managing stress with free guided meditations can help in achieving your sales goals.
Try these techniques to meditate before your next sales call and notice a change.
