"Meditation helps us with mental clarity and overall health," says Yee. You might get looks (or worse, interrupted) doing five minutes of meditation at your desk. Instead, try a walking meditation. To do this, leave the office and walk at a relaxed, fairly slow pace. Keep your attention on the rhythm of the walking. Notice the practice of left-right-left-right motion, and keep bringing your awareness back to this experience when your mind wanders in thoughts or when there are disruptions of the environment.
