I remember the first time I was told about meditation: At that time, it seemed like an obscure and weird practice for hipsters. Why on earth would I waste my time sitting still ? Nowadays, meditation is a much more common thing to westerners and many successful people 1 recommend meditation. But even if more and more people are interested, many of them still don’t make the switch. I’m writing this post in hope that it can help answer their questions, address their misconceptions and make them jump ahead.
