Recently I listened to the “Random Show” with Tim Ferriss and Kevin Rose and what I heard blew my mind.
Tim Ferriss and Kevin Rose, both shared their meditation secrets! But why should you meditate? Well, let’s look at the advantages for a second:
- Gaining a new perspective on stressful situations
- Building skills to manage your stress
- Increasing self-awareness
- Focusing on the present
- Reducing negative emotions
And if that sounds too scientific, how about the advantages that the cool people from Food Matters tell you:
1. Increased Immunity
2. Emotional Balance
3. Increased Fertility
4. Relieves Irritable Bowel Syndrome
5. Lowers Blood Pressure
Obviously Meditation always has a esoteric or religious ring to it (Tim Ferriss mentions this as well), but don’t get scared off by this! You can meditate without being religious or tied to one specific religion. The health benefits will be the same, it’s all about being present and mindful.
Convinced yet? Good, let’s look at the meditation tactics from Tim Ferriss and Kevin Rose:
– Meditate 1x or 2x per day
– Meditate for 15 to 20 minutes
– Meditate consistently (Tim Ferriss has been meditating for over 1.5 years!)
What are some of the results you could expect? After 92 sessions (25 hours!) of Meditation, Kevin reports “I can finally step back for a second and realize that the anger exists outside and not the inside”. Another great benefit that Kevin reports is something called “Perfect Presence”, where the mind just empties and you’re not feeling anything.

As you can see consistent Meditation practice has some great advantages. If you want to get started with Meditation today:
