Meditation is the Key to Everything

Did you know there is one thing you can do everyday to transform stress, build resilience and train your brain to get better focus and happiness in just 10 minutes a day?

It’s called meditation and it’s a powerful tool that I’ve personally been using with guided meditations for almost four months straight now, with profound effects.

So I jumped at the chance to dive deeper into why meditation and mindfulness are transforming peoples’ lives more than ever, in this interview with Dr Elise Bialylew.

She’s a coach, meditation teacher and social entrepreneur who trained as a doctor and psychiatrist.

Watch the vlog below or tune into the podcast to learn more.

Elise combines her deep psychological understanding, her training in mindfulness meditation, and her passion and creativity to coach people to discover their own life purpose and turn transform ideas into action.

She thrives on helping people make positive change in their lives through freeing themselves from self limiting beliefs and developing the confidence and courage needed to take bold action.

In short, her mission is to help people flourish and reach their full potential – so you can see why I wanted her on my show!

In this episode we dive into:

  • What meditation means to Elise
  • Two skills we all need in life
  • Effective practices to manage anxiety and depression
  • The mental benefits of mindfulness meditation
  • When is the best time of day to meditate
  • How and why she started teaching mindfulness

Watch this as a video interview right here on my YouTube Channel.

Is Meditation a Fad or a Life Changer?

Life a little overwhelming lately?

Feel like your brain is less like your friend, and more like a toddler let loose in a poorly-managed toy store?

What if you could tame that toddler, and in the process train your brain to be more focussed, less stressed and more relaxed?

And what if it took just ten minutes a day?

I know, I know, it sounds too good to be true. Well it’s not. The secret is…(wait for it)…mindfulness.

You might’ve heard of mindfulness or meditation before, and you may have heard of the benefits (of which there are many), but maybe you’ve never had the motivation to really try it?

Or maybe you’ve tried it but have fallen off the wagon?

Well that’s okay because in this podcast I share:

  • How often the human mind wanders
  • Why mind-wandering isn’t always a bad thing
  • The benefits of practicing mindfulness and being present
  • How to get started in daily meditation
  • Two of my fave meditation apps

Oh and I also mention a FREE way for you to get back on the wagon (or get on the wagon for the first time) and reboot your brain.

Every year in May, people all over the globe commit to meditating for 10 minutes a day through a program called Mindful in May. So far they’ve inspired over 30,000 people from 35 countries to learn mindfulness!

(Now that’s a lot of tamed brains!!)

The program brings together the world’s best meditation experts, neuroscientist, and wisdom teachers and inspires participants to raise money to bring clean, safe water to those in need. (So far they’ve raised over $600,000, and brought clean water to over 10,000 people!)

That means it creates a clear mind for you, and clean water for others.

To kick off the global campaign, Elise Bialylew, doctor, mindfulness expert, and founder of Mindful in May, is offering a FREE 5 days to mindfulness program to give you a taste of what’s to come.

I hope you join me on April 9-13th.
