And he’s right — when we practice meditation, we don’t only become more relaxed, we become better human beings.
Why Meditation Could Bring About A Better World
In a Harvard Medical School study, people who learned how to meditate were more likely to give up their seat for a woman in pain. Dr. Hölzel, who conducted the study, said that people who meditate “may be more willing to help when someone suffers, and act more compassionately.”
Research shows meditation can reduce hostility, aggression, crime rates and behavioral problems of children.
A growing number of studies show that meditation can increase emotional intelligence and feelings of love, kindness, empathy and social connectedness.
The Effect Of Meditation In The Real World
As more adults (and children) practice meditation, we’ve seen people become more committed to social entrepreneurship and volunteer efforts than ever before.
In fact, one survey of over a thousand young adults from 2014 found that 92% currently contribute their skills to companies they feel are making a difference in the world.
It seems we’re on the fast track to creating the most compassionate generation yet.

You’ve Probably Got Meditation All Wrong.A lot of people don’t do it, because they just can’t seem to ‘clear their minds’.
They try to empty their thoughts, and when that doesn’t work, they think they suck at meditation and give up.
But you see, the mind is designed to think. It does so automatically, just like how your heart beats.
The truth is, meditation isn’t about clearing your mind. It’s supposed to improve performance in all other aspects of your life.
