What if I told you that doing this one activity for 10-20 minutes per day could result in less stress, more joy, better focus, amazing sex, and more mindfulness?
If we’re talking about meditation, then it’s the truth!
I’ve personally been meditating for the past couple of years and can testify to the amazing benefits it brings to my own life.
If I’m anxious or worried? A couple minutes of meditation is all it takes to ground me and make me feel secure.
If I’m unfocused or unmotivated? Meditation rejuvenates my spirit.
And when I just want to feel like a happier, better version of myself? Meditation brings me closer to who I am.
So, it’s no surprise why I had to have Emily Fletcher, founder of Ziva Meditation, on the podcast. And trust me, she’s a woman you definitely wanna get to know.
Emily spent 10 years of her life performing on Broadway and began using meditation as a way to heal from the immense stress that she was feeling as a performer. Inspired by the physical and mental changes taking place from her practice, she traveled abroad to India for over 10 years (!) to study meditation.
Now, Emily teaches her innovative methods to companies like Google and Viacom, NBA players, full-time Moms, as well as thousands of other people around the world at conferences, live events, and through her online courses.
Emily’s mission in life is to make meditation attractive, accessible and easy to adopt into modern life. She says that she wants to make meditation as normal as brushing your teeth — that leaving the house without meditating should be just as taboo as leaving the house with bad breath. I’m with it!
During this hilarious and super informative interview, she shares her special “Ziva Meditation Technique” that teaches you how to feel happier, calmer and less stressed out.
Plus, Emily also has a free guided meditation to help you get ready for any big event – sweet right?! You can download it over here.
I can’t wait to share all the goodness of this interview with you, so let’s dive in!
Check out the episode below:
In this episode, you’ll hear about things like…
- What to do if you’ve tried meditating before and failed (and the logical reason why you shouldn’t give up just yet).
- The pain and loss of identity Emily felt when she decided to discontinue her Broadway acting career, but why she didn’t see it as a failure (and what happened next).
- Why “mindfulness” and “meditation” are actually two different things (and how to practice them both).
- Why meditation needs to be reframed as a productivity and performance tool, and not a casual “bubble bath for your brain.”
- The science behind meditation that might surprise you, as well as the tangible benefits it can bring to your life.
