My guest this week is Emily Fletcher, the founder of Ziva Meditation and the leading expert in meditation for extraordinary performance. The New York Times, Good Morning America, The Today Show, Vogue, and ABC News have all featured Emily’s work including her bestselling book Stress Less, Accomplish More. She’s been named one of the top 100 women in wellness to watch, has taught more than 20,000 students around the world, and has spoken on meditation for performance at Apple, Google, Harvard Business School, and Barclays Bank. Ziva Meditation graduates include Oscar, Grammy, Tony & Emmy award winners, NBA players, Navy SEALs, Fortune 500 CEOs, and busy parents. The Ziva Technique is a powerful trifecta of mindfulness, meditation, and manifesting designed to unlock your full potential.

In this episode, Emily and I discuss how valuable teaching meditation to children is as a tool for their health and wellness. Emily shares the neuroscience behind meditation and how it can effectively activate and strengthen the vagus nerve in our brains when practiced properly. This reaction creates a wealth of health benefits for both children and adults by significantly reducing stored stress and resulting in better sleep, decreased anxiety and depression, and increased productivity. To help children integrate this into their daily lives, Emily has created ZivaKIDS, an interactive online meditation training course coming soon.
