Right now, it seems everyone is talking about meditation. And at this point, you probably know you should be doing it. You’ve heard the neuroscience behind it; you’ve read the articles about the countless benefits. Maybe you’ve even dabbled with free mindfulness apps or a drop-in studio.
But now that we know for sure it’s so good for us, why do you still think you’re too busy to meditate? Especially since many of the world’s top performers have outed themselves as meditators, including Bill Gates, Ray Dalio, Jack Dorsey, and Oprah.
It’s time to face facts: the ROI on time spent meditating is too great to ignore any longer. But the style matters. Some meditation was designed for monks. Some were designed or people with busy minds and busy lives.

Your brain and body will flood with dopamine and serotonin and within 40 seconds, you will be chipping away at the backlog of stresses you have saved in your nervous system.
I graduated from zivaONLINE, and the transformations I’ve seen have been extraordinary: deeper, more restful sleep; less anxiety and irritability; more energy and focus; and more time in my day to do the things that I love.
