Labor Day Verse
For all the work we do each day
We deserve a rest
All year long we really strive
And try to do our best.
Labor Day's a time
To let go of the strife
Put up our feet, take a break
Really enjoy our life.
Let's take a quiet moment
To reflect with thankfulness this day
For family, friends and all we have
The blessings on this Labor Day.
Begin by finding a quiet spot to sit on a cushion on the floor with your legs folded in. Alternately, sit on a straight-back chair, with the soles of your feet on the floor for balance. Take your example from the photo accompanying this article.
Fold you hands in your lap or place them palms up or palms down on your thighs. Close your eyes. Begin even regular breathing such as 2 counts to breathe in and 2 counts to breathe out. Keep up this pattern throughout your meditation.
Take time to think on all the family and friends you have, your coworkers and all that you are truly grateful for. Everyone is part of your immediate family or your global family.
Think on this: We depend on each other to do the best at work so we all benefit. After all, we give our hours at work for others' benefit and they do the same for us, as we are all sharing and using the natural resources.
Take a deep breath in and slowly release it while giving an appreciation for this day of rest. Open your eyes, stretch out and go on to enjoy your day.
