This podcast episode is an incredible look at the science behind mindfulness. Mindfulness is such a buzz word at the moment, but this episode really explores how our brains function when we are putting all our focus on one singular thing. Michael explains actual step by step instructions for how to train your mind. It is a hugely important episode for anyone who is interested in elevating themselves to the next level.
