When we transition from our work day to home, we can sometimes take home the frustrations and stress from our day, and let it impact our home life. This meditation helps you to enter the "third space", a transitionary space that allows us to let of work and our busy day, and enter into a new and replenished headspace.

Letting go
Good to let go of work at home, stressed out or not, life is too short and there are more important things in life to worry about. Look forward to a new day another opportunity to live and breathe and do something positive. We may never break all the chains at once that hold us down, but we can do it one by one, giving us that little more freedom inside and outside.

I learned that you need to take stock at the end of the day and change your outlook for the rest of the day

Third space
It's nearly impossible for me to turn off thoughts of work. They run like white noise in the background of everything I do. This helped me realize the importance of letting work go so I can focus fully on myself and my family.

Prepare by completely clearing your mind. Then concentrate on your breathing. These two chores will make the difference in your meditation being helpful to you.

A constant reminder that I am Not normal or that I am not okay

Letting go of the work day
I must remember each night as I go through the tunnel to remind myself I am almost home. The workday is behind me and I can look forward to an evening of relaxation

Taking one step at a time
I learned that I do carry the weights and stress from my environment. I feel like i have a million things to do in so little time. Making a third space helps to give some time to breathe.

Work related sleep
Meditations shouldn't pop up on a Sunday. Most people don't have a boss problem on Sundays or rather don't want to think about it took fall asleep.

After a long day...
I learned that having a clear and open mind helps me let go of the past so I can focus on the present with good intentions and continue to grow with the people around me

Third space
Good to understand that the transition from work to Home and visa Vera requires a third space for that transition to take place. Friday evenings have always been the toughest for me-exhausted from all the week brought an not ready to dive into my weekend. This week I’ll try to recognize it as the third space that it is and enjoy riding it through. Namaste

Letting go and paying attention to what matters
I learned that the little things that end up stressing me out don't really matter. This session really helped me relax before I tackle some of the homework I have due coming up and helped give me an empty slate before I finish the rest of my day.

This is the hardest for me to accomplish, but I already feel a sense of relief, even in the early morning. I had stress this morning from work already and this has helped.

I loved the line about having freedom once being done with work. My soul vibes with that.

letting go
i am good enough, there is no need to doubt me. i am doing well, i am enough, whatever people think of me is not my business to care. i need to be calm, kinder and more patient so i will understand how they think of me, but it doesn’t matter. today only i matter. only i am important and enough. today i will care for only me.

This meditation felt like such a great release of all of the stress and frustration that weighs you down during the day. It puts you in a different mindset and definitely creates a lot better mood. It left me feeling refreshed and renewed.

It doesn’t matter
Exhaling all of the tension and angry people, inhaling rejuvenation. Don’t let yourself be consumed by irritable interactions with angry customers. Breathe in and out and remember that it does not matter.

Tomorrow .
I’ve learned to be more focused on the present then tomorrow or yesterday. I like to go over what I did that day to help me fall asleep. ☺️

2 different Mindsets
One mindset is your Work life that is very stressful. The other is your home life where you need to relax and feel at ease.

In and out
Back when I was in school, I met a person who changed my mindset towards myself. This person is the speaker of the symposium we had a few hours ago, and with her words, she made me realize that taking care of oneself is the most important step we have to put in mind. By breathing in all of the positivity in our lives and releasing all the negativity that bring us down, we start to nourish and cleanse ourself: we take care of oneself.

Working day
This showed a new insight into how I can carry work into my home space and very often I do. I will now try to take a few minutes between work and home to release any tension associated with work before returning home

Letting go
Letting go of the stresses of my work day is so hard to do in my line of work. But I owe it to my love ones and myself to learn how to let go of the b.s. and bring a fresh and renewed attitude to my home. Home is a place of comfort and peace. I should always come into my house with a countenance of peace.

Fresh air
As a counselor this meditation is especially relevant for me. So much of my day is talking about really difficult situations and heavy conversations. It is essential to allow myself to transition past that on my way home.
