Have you asked yourself recently, “What do I want?”

That question is so simple, so powerful and yet we often forget to ask it. Knowing other people’s opinions and needs can be valuable — but only if you know your desires first and foremost.

How to Uplevel Your Meditation to Become a Super Performer at Work & Life

by Emily Fletcher
Emily Fletcher is one of the world’s leading experts in meditation. She’s been invited to teach at places like Google, Harvard Business School and The Omega — but that’s a stark contrast to the busy, stressed Broadway performer that she was years earlier. During her 10-year career on Broadway, which included roles in Chicago, The Producers and A Chorus Line, she started to go grey at 27, suffer from insomnia and get sick 4-5 times a year. Thankfully, she discovered a powerful meditation practice that cured her insomnia and improved her health on the first day. After years of studying ancient practices in India and teaching thousands of high performers, Emily created Ziva Meditation, a mental technique that combines the stress-relieving benefits of meditation with the mental clarity of mindfulness.
