Are you trying too hard? We’re often taught in life that the more effort we put in, the more we’ll get out. It turns out meditation is the exception to that rule. In this animation, Headspace’s co-founder, Andy Puddicombe, looks out how we can train our minds in the kind of relaxed effort that we need in order to meditate. Learning to meditate really does mean giving your mind a break.
If you enjoy this animation, and you’d like to learn how to meditate, you can get started for free, by downloading the Headspace app.
