On an average day, in an average minute, we can process over 20,000 trillion bits of information per second. Such incredibly rapid brain activity can lead to confusion, fear, tension, stress, and anxiety. To stave off these pressures, our "one-minute minds" instinctively look for escapes like drinking, drugs, smoking, sex, and entertainment. While all are efficient short-term distractions, none is a permanent salve.
The One-Minute Meditator shows you how to harness your innate drive for quick mental escapes and use that urge to quiet your thoughts from within. Proving that meditation is both physically and emotionally healthful, Nichol and Birchard show you how to meditate whenever you have a solitary minute or more - on the walk from the parking lot to the office, while waiting in line, while on hold on the phone. Both inspiring and instructive, The One-Minute Meditator gives you the tools to incorporate the gentle, rejuvenating, healing power of meditation into your life - however busy and harried it might be.
