Meditation - is this the answer to many of the problems of modern day life? 'Meditate and be Calm' could be a mantra for modern day living. Meditation and Mindfulness are becoming more and more popular as people look for ways to increase resiliency.
“Suppose you read about a pill that you could take once a day to reduce anxiety and increase your contentment. Would you take it? Suppose further that the pill has a great variety of side effects, all of them good: increased self-esteem, empathy, and trust; it even improves memory. Suppose, finally, that the pill is all natural and costs nothing. Now would you take it? The pill exists. It is Meditation.”
The Happiness Hypothesis by Jonathan Haidt
