716: Brendan Barca: A Discussion About the Benefits of Meditation

Today I am excited to introduce you to Brendan Barca.  He is a blogger and the founder of Straddletheline.co, a site dedicated to helping millennials live a fuller life by helping them find their passion.  I met Brendan when he joined the mastermind group that I belong to.  Even though we both share an entrepreneurial spirit, I have asked him to be on ZEN commuter to talk about his meditation practice.  As a self-professed beginner, I thought it would be helpful to talk to him about his successes and challenges with meditation in the hope that others just starting out can learn from our discussion.

What you will learn in this episode:

  • The benefits of meditation
  • a tip for keeping a meditation habit
  • The benefits of meditating in the evening
