They’re not just for decoration. Nor are they designed to give the impression that you’ve got it all mastered and you’re now a “Zen God or Goddess.”
What the heck are these boxes of sand all about?
I’ll tell you—mindfulness!
Yup. They help you stop, meditate and focus on the present. It’s a tool or a sanctuary—take your pick. Regardless of how you refer to it, these little stinkers do work. They also help you develop a sense of creativity, discipline and appreciation of beauty. Isn’t that interesting?
You also don’t have to buy one; you can make your own.
Okay, so you’ve logged onto a site where you want to advance your career and all I’m talking about is Zen Gardens. I’m not crazy, nor am I off topic. You can’t master your destiny without creativity, discipline and focus. And if you’re not going to meditate to help you cultivate these skills, then try a Zen Garden.
Yes, you heard me. This little box may be the key to your career success!
