Meditation: What, Why, and How To Meditate (Hint: Breathe In. Breathe Out.)

Over 80% of world-class performers have a daily mindfulness or meditation practice – authors, chess prodigies, movie stars, four-star generals, pro athletes, hedge fund managers, and more.

Why? What is a daily mindfulness or meditation practice anyway? And how do they do it?

So many questions! Maybe we should start by slowing things down and doing a super-short experiment. It will take less than a minute. Are you up for it?

Start by breathing in through your nose to a count of four, and then breathing out to a count of six.


Breathe in – 2. 3. 4.

Breathe out – 2. 3. 4. 5. 6.

Now close your eyes, and do it again three times.

Did you do it? If not, give it a try. What did you think?

You now have a tool that you can use to bring your attention to the present moment anytime, anywhere. The more you practice using this tool, the better those moments will be.

It’s called meditation, and it’s a simple way to make you happier, healthier, smarter, and more effective.
