In today’s episode, we will discuss how we can optimize our days by just adding this one little practice into our daily routine. Meditation is a simple practice that reaps a lot of benefits for those who religiously practice it. Gregg practices meditation but admittedly has not prioritized getting it to stick. We’re going to establish, point-by-point, on this episode, why you need to start practicing meditation and how you can easily make it a part of your daily routine to a point where it becomes habitual, that you need not be reminded of it.
