Did you know that our minds are lost in thought 47% of the time, and that the reason for this stems from unhappiness?

So this begs the question, how often do you allow yourself the needed opportunity to sit and do absolutely nothing, except embrace the moment rather than a destructive thought?

Mindfulness expert, Andy Puddicombe, explains in this excellent TED Talk that all it takes is 10 minutes a day to refresh your body and increase your overall happiness just by being mindful and experiencing the present moment through meditation.

We know that for a lot of you, we’re preaching to the converted, however for those who are new to meditation or perhaps have let their practice slip, watch this 10-minute talk to learn why meditation is the best medicine for the mind.

We loved this TED talk; as we couldn’t have said it better ourselves. Meditation really makes for a healthier, happier you – wouldn’t you agree?
