Living In The Present Moment | The Utility Of Meditation
Living In The Present Moment | The Utility Of Meditation
Mere Mortals

Is mindfulness all it's cracked up to be?

In Episode #388 of 'Meanderings' I discuss: why I've been feeling anxious recently, the common setbacks that stop people from trying out meditation, helpful podcasts and books to dive deeper into, our inability to fully solve the problem of living in the past/future and some potential downsides that can occur from living too much in the present moment.

I hope you have a fantastic day wherever you are in the world, Kyrin out!

Even though he turned out to be a huge "ends-justify-the-means" TDS patient, whom I can't stand now, Sam Harris' book Waking Up really turned me onto mindful meditation Mere Mortals. I bought the audio book and ended up transcribing the bulk of it by hand (also very meditative). I find it extremely helpful in life.
