Meditation has been around for a long time. And while many people attribute it only to religious practices, such as Buddhism or Taoism, it can provide many benefits for people in their day-to-day lives.
Before you plop yourself down and close your eyes, it’s important to know how to meditate, where to start, and what some of the expected benefits can be.
In his presentation, Full-Stack Developer Thomas Morris focuses on mindfulness and meditation while remaining skeptical towards the lesser proven factors of chakras, third eyes, and healing crystals. He goes through meditation’s origins, practices, and even shares a few apps to help get you started.
“At the end of the day, if you sit and get really quiet, you’ll notice that even this feeling of yourself that you carry is actually just another thought.” - Tom Morris
