Book Description

1 Mar 2013
A follow-up to Real Happiness, the New York Times bestseller, Sharon Salzberg's Real Happiness at Work is a practical guide to improving work life through mindfulness, compassion, and ingenuity. It's about being committed without being consumed, competitive without being cruel, managing time and emotions to counterbalance stress and frustration. It shows readers how to be more creative, organized, and accomplished in order to do better, more productive work. Dividing the idea of workplace satisfaction into eight pillars, Real Happiness at Work is filled with secular wisdom; core meditations on broad themes like motivation, awareness, and seeing the good in others; and more than a dozen exercises, including Moving From Me to We and When Things Go Wrong. Sprinkled throughout the book are short "stealth" meditations, the kind that are quick, private, and doable anywhere - "Let the phone ring three times, follow your breath, then pick it up" and "For an upcoming one-on-one conversation, resolve to listen more and speak less." Even the best jobs are filled with stress, tough deadlines, impatient bosses, seemingly endless meetings - all the ills of harried life. But as science increasingly shows, meditation is the antidote.

5.0 out of 5 stars More helpful than you can imagine 3 Jan 2014
By maxine perkins - Published on
Whether you meditate regularly or not (I don't). Whether you hate your job or feel pretty okay about it (the latter for me), this book will change your life for the better in such simple and beautiful ways, it almost feels like magic. Salzberg's voice is knowledgeable and comforting, and her advice is creative and thoroughly doable. Regarding a particular work exchange, I went from dark and angry to open and calm with a simple "stealth meditation." There are more gifts in here than under a thousand Christmas trees!

5.0 out of 5 stars Gentle, expert wisdom 24 Feb 2014
By Riva Weinstein - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Sharon Salzberg's meditation teachings have guided me gently and expertly over the years, helping me to navigate work, life, relationships - and all their inherent difficulties and joys - by simply returning to my breath. Her books make meditation practice an accessible part of everyday life for anyone willing to give it a go. And that is a great gift to us all.

5.0 out of 5 stars Happiness and Work in the same sentence? Yes indeed! 4 Mar 2014
By Juliette Ozkalfayan - Published on
Reading Real Happiness at Work was refreshing, down-to-earth, and inspiring with a simple, yet profound message of bringing loving kindness, compassion, and equanimity into our places of work. It is a guide to bringing Mindfulness Meditation practice, into daily living and into whatever our chosen profession might be. This is not a self-help book prompting the reader to beat themselves up, change who they are, and adhere to an old-school "head down helmet on" perspective on the workplace. Instead Sharon teaches the reader to develop a meditation practice that cultivates loving kindness for ourselves, so we can in turn bring this energy, and ease, into work. Throughout, there are real life examples of bringing this practice into everyday, interpersonal issues at work with practical advice on how to handle them from a place of kindness and compassion. They are situations we've all been through, and I love how tangible the exercises and insights are.

3.0 out of 5 stars Helpful for some one in the very beginning of mindfulness 13 May 2014
By R. Denhardt - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
After reading Loving Kindness, I was very disappointed with this book. It is double spaced, large print and lacks real depth. I will be helpful for someone who is beginning practice but I think there are much better books out there. One can get Mindfulness in Plain English or better yet Miracle of Mndfulness by Thich Nhat Hahn for free on the web.

meditation has carried me through a crisis at work. I meditate regularly but she gives instructions for people who have never meditated before. I love Sharon Salzberg's work.
