Being present at work begins before you even go to your place of employment. It starts with your intention to bring consciousness into everything you do, including those activities you do for money. Whether you are a secretary who files papers all day, a cleaner who cleans the local school, or a nurse caring for people, there is much to be gained by fully engaging in the tasks at hand. When you decide to bring your presence into your work activities, you may find that the entire experience of working is filled with new energy and life.
Sometimes we believe that when we step through the doors of our workplace, we cease being ourselves and start being someone else’s employee.
Though your employer may depend on you to perform certain tasks, the truth is that you never stop being yourself. The commitment to being a conscious, empowered person of integrity doesn’t stop and start with a time clock. Your decision to be present for your own life is what weaves together all of your experiences from the moment you wake up, throughout your entire workday, and to the moment you turn off the lights at night.
Before leaving for work, you can clear your energy and choose to step out with your best foot forward. Setting an intention in the morning can even help you stay present as your day unfolds. You might decide to find joy in every activity, complete all of your projects on time, or be truly helpful to your co-workers. By being fully present, you will begin to radiate and people may begin to notice; they may even want to follow your lead. Whether you run a company or hold a sign outside a deli, do it with pride and be the best you can be.
