We’re not the first ones to argue in favor of meditation.
It’s not just talk – a study in Biological Psychiatry shows that meditation can change your brain, making life feel a little bit different – if not markedly easier.
At its core, meditation is a moment of silence. And that’s something we can use outside of the meditative structure.
There’s so much noise around us all the time, between banner ads and car honking and incessant Twitter feeds, that it’s hard to keep up, and harder to make yourself heard.
The solution isn’t to add to the noise, though: it’s to save your energy.
It’s to speak at the right time, instead of all the time.
