Give Yourself a Break from Your Bad Boss--With a One-Minute Stress Reliever!

The continual stress of a Bad Boss is bad for your health; mental, emotional and physical.

Take a break from that stress with a one-minute meditation. No, this isn’t heavy duty naval-gazing, it’s just an effective way of stepping back from the yamma-yamma in your head, so you can start fresh in a better mental, emotional and physical place.

Here are meditation guru Martin Boroson’s excellent tips on how to do that: (my comments are in parentheses).

1. Find a place of solitude. (a bathroom stall works great)
2. Sit down.
3. Place your legs in a relaxed but fixed position.
4. Sit up.
5. Set your alarm for exactly one minute. (Yes, your smart phone has an alarm function)
6. Place your hands in a relaxed but fixed position.
7. Close your eyes.
8. Focus all your attention on your breathing.
9. When the alarm sounds, stop.

Feel better? Good! Do this a few times each work day and you’ll be considerably less impacted adversely by your Bad Boss.

Let Bad Bosses Know--You’re Not Going to Take It Anymore! says: “If you have a bad boss, please make sure to rate your boss so that you can help warn other people about your hostile work environment.  

“Thanks to the many people who have anonymously rated their boss on eBossWatch, bad bosses are beginning to realize that they will no longer be able to hide their toxic behavior.”

Excellent! Time to let the Bad Bosses know “We’re as mad as hell, and we’re not going to take this anymore!”
