Become more productive with our mini meditation masterclass

Our new series is designed to optimise your life. This month, meditation expert Deborah Quibell guides you through a collection of meditations to help you get more done. 


Sometimes we can find ourselves mentally stuck, whether we have lost our focus or we are unable to tap into our creativity. To help unlock your productivity, our meditation expert Deborah Quibell has pulled together a series of specific meditations designed to help you regain your spark.  


This mini masterclass is broken down into 5 handy meditations, the first is designed to boost your energy because when we’re lacking that ‘get up and go’ our productivity can dwindle. There is also a walking meditation, great if you work at a desk and want to reset body and mind. Then there are three specific meditations designed to tackle the specific reason your productivity is low: reduced creativity; procrastination, that inability to just get tasks done without getting distracted or saying to yourself “I’ll do it tomorrow”; and lastly, a lack of focus.  


To guide you through, Deborah has recorded a short intro to each meditation. You can treat this as a 5-day mini masterclass trying a new meditation every day, or you can pick and choose the topics that feel most relevant to what you need right now. 


Boost Your Energy 

This mini meditation masterclass starts with a technique called Pranic Breathing. “The breath keeps us alive. It draws in life energy or ‘Prana’ from our surroundings. Prana is a Sanskrit word that means vital energy or life force,” says Deborah.

Reset Body & Brain 

Our second meditation is a guided walking meditation. “When we feel stuck in our mind or in our emotions or lethargic in our body, one of the best things we can do is change our physical environment,” notes Deborah. “To get up and get out and hopefully into the fresh air.”

Spark Your Creativity 

“Creativity is a quality that we all have... so many times I hear people say ‘I’m not a creative person’. The problem comes when we think of creativity too narrowly,” explains Deborah. “In our modern world we move so much and accumulate a lot of – what I like to call – inner junk that can block us from a creative sense of being.” This meditation helps to clear that inner junk to make space for creativity – in whatever way it manifests for you - to flow.

Beat Procrastination 

“Procrastination is something so many of us deal with. In this meditation we will focus on a few things to overcome procrastination,” says Deborah. “First, compassionate awareness; second, clearing overwhelm; and third resistance - shifting our internal energy to remind ourselves that we are strong, capable and value action.”

Focus Your Mind 

This final meditation in the series “focuses on helping to anchor and focus the mind using the breath,” says Deborah. “Meditation is not about stopping our thoughts but to observe them rather than getting caught up in them... Over time, with practice, you’ll notice that your mind becomes more still and calm.”
