Episode Transcript

Welcome. And thank you for joining me for another gutted episode of investing in vitality. This is how many of the meditations I listened to on YouTube begin. There are soft lilting tones. Send the signal to my brain that it's time to quiet down the jumbled mess of my thoughts. My monkey brain. That's a term derived from Buddhist teachings that refers to the uncontrolled and restless nature of the human mind. Just as a monkey swings from branch to branch, our mind jumps from thought to thought. Constantly emotion, rarely at peace. If left unchecked, this nonstop chatter can result in overwhelming anxiety, stress, and other debilitating health conditions. So before we get into our session, take a deep breath. Settle into a comfortable seat and get ready as we explore the hearts of our minds together. Stress creeps into our daily routines under the guise of responsibility, ambition, passion.
