Meditation Practice: How to Be a Better You

Meditation Practice: How to Be a Better You

This is Episode 46 of This Old New Business weekly business podcast with Jeff Korhan.

In this episode we are going to talk about a subject I am very passionate about, and that is the meditation practice and how to implement a meditation routine in your daily life. You may be wondering why meditation is being discussed on a business podcast.

The reason, in addition to the fact that many of you have asked me to share what I’ve learned as a meditation instructor for nearly 15 years, is that there are many practical benefits to meditation, including greater productivity and creativity, increased energy, and what most people are familiar with – a greater ability to manage stress.

We’ve all experienced times when it seems we are no longer running the business, but rather it is running us. That’s what happened in my early days as an entrepreneur, and that’s what led me to learning meditation and then later becoming a meditation instructor.

I’m going to share that journey, then get into the fundamentals of a meditation practice, what it is and what it isn’t, how meditation is practiced, and really how it works on a practical level.
