How would you like to be calmer, less distracted, more productive, and more content at your job? You might think it would take more hours in the day, a better boss, more support, less interference, a shorter commute - and the list goes on. Most of the things we think would help are either not in our control or simply not realistic. But there is one thing we can do to achieve the qualities we seek, and it can be done invisibly and often: meditation.
Meditation? Can you imagine meditating at work? Who has time for that? Real Happiness at Work will show why you don't have time not to do it.
Sharon Salzberg has identified Eight Pillars of Happiness in the Workplace. They are: balance, concentration, resilience, integrity, meaning, connection, compassion, and open awareness. With short, subtle meditations to use pre- or post-meeting, in coping with unreasonable people, in finding meaning in seemingly meaningless tasks, and for dealing with mistakes, Real Happiness at Work will provide what we all seek - happiness - and what we all need - peace and productivity.

Yes. I am intrigued enough by the content of this book that I would try another one of her books. But I might buy paper copy instead.
Sharon is way too monotone to read this book. It was hard to follow punctuation and chapter headings, as her tone never shifted.
This is an incredibly powerful help to achieving equanimity and happiness at work. I listened to it a second time immediately upon finishing the first.
So glad that I listened to this! Not only was the message life changing but by listening I was able to practice the meditations without the distraction of reading the words. I will definitely be checking out more titles by this author.
