Andy is the co-founder and voice of the fast-growing mediation app, which I use daily, called Headspace. The former Buddhist monk who also has a degree in circus arts now has more than 10 million users listening to voice through guided meditation. Whether you’ve never meditated or you practice daily, I think you’ll find Andy’s approach refreshing, valuable and unmatched. He has a real-life and innovative way of helping others become more mindful.

Show Notes:

  • Why Andy has an unexpected tough time with recalling a Why Not Now? moment.
  • We talk through the moment Andy decided he was going to move and train to become a Buddhist monk.
  • The correlation between minds wandering and unhappiness.
  • The impact meditation has on kids and the new Headspace for Kids offering
  • The difference between exercise and meditation.
  • The difference between praying and meditating.
  • What Andy would tell his younger self.
