Learning how to meditate means accepting that our minds won’t go quiet the moment we sit and close our eyes. So if we can’t just clear the mind on-demand, how are we ever going to relax? In this animation Headspace co-founder, Andy Puddicombe likens the practice of meditation to sitting by the side of a road, with instructions to watch the traffic. How do we stop ourselves getting caught up with the thoughts? It’s a question of perspective.
If you enjoy this animation, and you’d like to learn how to meditate, you can get started for free, by downloading the Headspace app.
