Your heart pumps blood to the rest of your body day in and day out. This goes on all of the time, without you having to think about a single heartbeat. It’s an amazing process!

Q: What do yoga, meditation and an apple slicer have in common?
A: They all take you to the core.
Many people are intimidated or overwhelmed by meditation. But you don’t need a turban or incense or anything, really—except five minutes—to meditate. Ya got five minutes? I think you do, because ironically and paradoxically, the time you “put in” to meditation comes back to you, multiplied!
You will be that much more efficient and focused and calm, and so you will actually gain time by sitting quietly for a few minutes every day. And more than that, you’ll feel happier and more peaceful. And it don’t get better than that.
Here are some tips for an at-home meditation practice:
“Take care of your body. It’s the only place you have to live.”
