In this episode, Dan and Lindsey talk all about Meditation! Here are some key takeaways.

What Is Meditation?

  • Meditation is a mental exercise that involves relaxation, focus, and awareness. 
  • Meditation is to the mind what physical exercise is to the body.

Meditation is practiced in one of three modes according to LiveandDare.com:

  • Concentration: focusing attention on a single object, internal or external (focused attention meditation)
  • Observation: paying attention to whatever is predominant in your experience in the present moment, without allowing the attention to get stuck on any particular thing (open-monitoring meditation)
  • Awareness: allowing awareness to remain present, undistracted and not engaged with either focusing or observing * Full Article Available Here

What Is Mindfulness?

  •  "The ability to be present, to rest in the here and now, fully engaged with whatever we’re doing in the moment." - Headspace.com
