Did you know that New Yorkers, and by extension, Long Islanders, are the second most stressed-out inhabitants of the U.S? Here, we suggest a remedy. The least affordable housing and the highest population density, along with some extreme work hours, make us all a little bit edgier than most of our compatriots. Just reading that is stressful!
There Is A Way To Lead A Less Stressed, More Focused, More Joyful Life
You might have already heard of it: meditation.
It’s not just for Indian gurus anymore! Many high profile people, including Ophrah, Russell Simmons, Congressman Tim Ryan, and Ray Dalio (CEO of Bridgewater Associates, largest hedge fund in the world) use it to help them balance the craziness of their days.
- Meditation is like strength training for the brain.
- With time and practice it helps distinguish which thoughts are important and those that are less so.
- It helps throughout the rest of the day, allowing us to have our emotional needs met while staying on-purpose and resisting sabotage.
Sounds great, right? If you'd like more information on how to bring meditation into your life, we have resources for you on our website: articles, videos, tips, strategies, and information.
