Episode 2

The Life-Changing Benefits of Meditation

With Emily Fletcher

Is stress getting the best of you? Have you heard the saying that stress makes you stupid, sick, and slow? How many of your health problems are related to stress? My schedule is jam-packed every single day, and the only way I can approach my work and my life with clarity is by taking time to press pause every single day. I do this with meditation, and meditation has literally made me more productive, calm, and clear-headed.

Our second interview in The Broken Brain Podcast is all about meditation and features one of my favorite teachers—Emily Fletcher of Ziva Meditation!

This week the executive producer of Broken Brain, Dhru, talks to Emily about how meditation can be life-changing. A regular practice can literally change the chemistry and biology of your brain as well as positively affect your relationships and your work. We’ll learn how meditation can actually give you time back, how it relaxes your central nervous system, can reduce effects of jet lag, is very helpful to new parents, and much more.

I hope you’ll tune in to hear what Emily has to say and learn more about why we can’t afford to not meditate.
