The most common myth about meditation is that if you can’t close your eyes and empty your mind, you’re doing it wrong. But that couldn’t be further from the truth!
Just take it from Broody the Brain, the adorable cartoon protagonist of this video by the Mayo Clinic’s Dr. Amit Sood. Turns out, there are plenty of ways to benefit from meditation without having to close your eyes or wrestle your monkey mind into submission.
Meditation isn’t about clearing your mind—it’s about finding a sense of peace and contentment, while engaging in life moment by moment. In fact, just about any form of relaxed focus is meditation, as long as you’re fully immersed in the experience.
