  • “It’s maybe hard to imagine now, but there was once a time when New York was a tranquil place, an island of lush greenery and singing birds and majestic mountain lions sipping out of clear freshwater ponds.

  • “If you’re really looking to geek out over the benefits of meditation, researchers are currently exploring how meditation practices can change your brain’s gray and white matter (the part of your brain that’s in charge of all muscle control, sight, hearing, memory, emotions, speech, decision making, and self-control).” – 10 Meditation Tips from the Soothing Voice Behind the Headspace App
