On this week’s episode, we welcome Jeff Warren, meditation teacher and co-author of Meditation for Fidgety Skeptics. Being human takes practice, as someone wise once said. We all know that life isn’t easy, and sometimes just existing doesn’t come as naturally to us as we would like it to. But the truth is we could all use a little help when it comes to practicing being human, and meditation is a tool that is becoming more and more useful for people from all walks of life. But let’s say you’re like Jeff was before he got into meditation and think it’s all a bit hippy-woo-woo, or you just simply struggle to do it. Well, Jeff is here to show us that meditation doesn’t have to be someone sitting and staring at a candle for two hours. In this episode, Jeff offers honest and accessible advice about mindfulness and meditation and shows us how to incorporate these deliberate practices into our daily lives.
