Editor’s comment: I read a brief clip of this Claire Suddath Bloomberg interview in the monthly magazine and was struck by his opening response, which is excerpted below.
Excerpt: “Meditation is a way to bypass the thinking process, which gives us anxiety. As soon as you feel stress, your cortisol goes up, your adrenaline goes up, your breath gets shallow, your heart rate goes up. The best way to stop that is to just stop…observe…pause and ask yourself, ‘what is the best way for me right now to handle this situation?’”
Deepak Chopra, MD, Founder of The Chopra Foundation and Chopra Global speaks to Bloomberg’s Claire Suddath and shares his best tips and practices on meditation with the audience at the Bloomberg Businessweek. (Source: Bloomberg)
