You do not need to climb to the top of the coldest, highest mountain to be Zen. You do not need to crawl on your hands and knees, seal yourself away in a cave, or stop eating birthday cake. Most importantly, at least for this book, you do not have to quit your job to be Zen. In Office Zen , you will learn how Zen can exist in any moment and any place, even the most stressful and high-strung office.
Office Zen will be the first book to incorporate the Zen principles of mindfulness and simplicity into the home office and work station by
providing tips on how to remove clutter from your work space teaching meditation and stretching exercises to destress in two minutes or less laying the frame work for a healthy work-life balance
Zen, and other mindfulness practices like it, asks us to examine the world around us with an emphasis on kindness and compassion toward ourselves and others. By being more meditative and calm in your daily interactions, you can bring peace into your workplace and happiness into your life.
