Give your brain a break

Give your brain a break and achieve inner peace with Matthew Johnstone’s illustrated guide to meditation. I love the opening graphic.

Over a 24-hour period we can process up to 70,000 thoughts, even as we sleep. Each day contains 86,400 seconds, so that equates to a different thought every 1.2 seconds, or two thoughts for every heartbeat. Basically, your brain never shuts up!

  1. By “meditating”, of course, these people mean the opposite of meditating, namely emptying your mind and relaxing. Or sometimes napping. A useful endeavor, to be sure, and maybe something that will help you to better meditate (for real) later when you are rested, but it is hardly meditation.
