According to Harvard Medical School, stress is an epidemic that is responsible for 90% of all doctors visits. It can negatively impact our relationships and our ability to perform at the top of our game. It's become so widespread that we accept it as "normal" to have insomnia, digestive issues, and chronic anxiety. It’s clear that stress reduction needs to be a part of our personal wellness routines.

On today’s Broken Brain Podcast, our host, Dhru, talks to Emily Fletcher, the founder of Ziva Meditation and creator of The Ziva Technique. She’s been named one of the top 100 women in wellness to watch, has taught more than 15,000 students around the world, and has spoken on meditation for performance at Google, Harvard Business School, Viacom, and Wanderlust. Ziva graduates include Oscar, Grammy, Tony, and Emmy award winners, NBA players, Navy SEALs, Fortune 500 CEOs, busy parents, and social entrepreneurs. Her debut book, Stress Less, Accomplish More,was just released by HarperCollins on February 19th.

In this episode, Dhru and Emily break down the topic of stress and how we can use meditation to truly help us accomplish more, feel better, and live life with more intention. They also talk about how meditation can impact our sex life, performance, and enjoyment of life. Throughout their talk, we hear about the science of meditation and the positive effects it has on cellular aging. And Emily dismantles the #1 myth about meditation and discusses how to bring meditation into your life in a practical and tangible way.
