For me, this has had a massive impact. And I don’t just mean productivity — meditation (stillness, non-doing, mindfulness, whatever name you’ve labeled your practice) has helped me grow. Sitting by yourself, with the objective of simply sitting, opens quite a few doors. With meditation, you realize we don’t leave much room for things like introspection.
I’ve become more grateful, slower to frustration and anger, become more relaxed, more observant and just an all-around happier guy.
Seemed like mumbo-jumbo to me before I tried it. The Buddha (#OriginalExample) famously said “Come and see.” — I encourage readers to take the plunge. It’s become routine for me, and enjoyably so.
