Workplace mental health has a newfound importance in our lives today, with the pandemic nearly behind us but the changes it brought us leaving a lasting impact both at home and at work. According to the World Health Organization, in 2019, 15% of working-age adults were estimated to have a mental disorder, and globally, an estimated 12 billion working days are lost every year to depression and anxiety at a cost of US$ 1 trillion per year in lost productivity. 

The good news is, there are ways to lower mental health risks at work, and one of those methods has been tried and tested by many here at Mediaverse:


Meditation is a quick and simple journey that helps one to regain mindfulness of the connection between their mental and physical selves, helping to reduce stress and anxiety, promote better sleep patterns, and even improve cognitive skills. Here's a simple step-by-step for meditation.  


Create Calmness

Find a calm and quiet place. Don't fuss over finding a space completely silent. Even your desk at the office works.

Focus on Your Breathing

Use music that helps you relax or be completely silent, and focus on your breath to try to find a rhythm in your breathing. Counting your breaths is a good technique to not get sidetracked.

Relax Your Mind

Accept the thoughts that arise. Wandering thoughts are normal, instead of trying to block them out, understand that it's a part of being alive. Accept them, release them. Try not to cling to any.

Stay Aware of Your Body

Keep bringing attention to your breath again, focusing on your nose, your chest, your ribs, and your belly, and observe how your body moves. 

Be Comfortable

You don't have to be completely still, sit comfortably and relax both your mental and body muscles. 

Practice Till Better

Include it in your day-to-day. Even if it's only for 5 minutes, consistency is key. Be open and conscious of your body's feelings, sounds, and other sensations such as smell and taste. Take it slow. 

Be Kind to Yourself

Start small and set reasonable expectations for meditation. Know that honing your awareness skills is a process and the world is filled with distractions, so being able to find a bubble of peace is no small achievement. You're doing great! 


At Mediaverse, some of us use meditation to begin the day, some others use sports to finish the day. Regardless of the approach, we take active breaks and know to prioritize them. Why? When we feel mentally well, we are more likely to be open to new ideas, engage in collaborative thinking, and have an optimistic outlook. This helps to prevent burnout and encourages us to think outside of the box.


Another benefit is that prioritizing mental health helps build better relationships. When we feel mentally fit, we can approach everyday tasks with a clear head, communicate more effectively, and build positive relationships with not just our peers and our customers, but ultimately with ourselves.
