Meditation for Translators

Presentation in:

As translators, we receive several mental information daily. Whether are technical, medical, legal or other kind of documents, our brains are always “agitated”, which can lead to mental and even physical fatigue. What can we do to prevent this? How can we improve our concentration and, at the same time, feel relaxed and calm? How can we avoid mental and emotional distress?

Did you know that we only need 5 minutes daily to “rest” our brain and improve our concentration? That we don’t need to have a “special” environment nor be seated in difficult positions?

In this workshop it will be presented some tips and meditation techniques that any translator can do, and that it will help us to be more focused and to allow our brain to rest.
