- Put up a new picture in your office. If you work in the same place every day (cubicle, office, desk, truck…) place a new picture someplace. Every time you notice it, stop and take a meditation mini-break. Variations of this trigger are to just take a picture that is already on the wall and make it slightly crooked or set your screen saver to browse through you photos and add a new one.
- Put a new ring on a finger. This also works if you take a ring you normally wear off your finger. Each time you notice the ring, take a mini-break.
- Use a recurring physical sensation. For example, this week I have had intermittent lower back pain. Each time I notice it (and it is hard not to notice!) I use it as a reminder to take a mini-break.
