This website http://www.donothingfor2minutes.com does exactly what it says on the tin and asks you to ‘Do Nothing For 2 Minutes’.
If you have never tried anything like mindfulness or meditation before this is a simple place to start.
Just try and breathe, listen to the waves and if you want look at the picture. Most people struggle to begin with but that is fine.. don’t beat yourself up if you don’t manage it at first.
I set a timer a couple of times a day on my phone and if I’m working on the computer when it goes off I do this.. just breathing deeply and taking a bit of a time-out can help enormously and make you more focused when you go back to your work.
