Meditation is the Ultimate Rest Hack – Light Watkins : 580

In this episode of Bulletproof Radio, we get real with Light Watkins about meditation and why it’s so hard to get your body and your thoughts comfortable doing it. You’ll learn there’s no “right” way and no “wrong” way to meditate—just the way that works for you and keeps you coming back to it.

Light has been immersed in the meditation space for nearly two decades, first as a practitioner, then as an apprentice to his Vedic Meditation teacher, and finally as a teacher himself. But in the beginning, he spent several years sitting in uncomfortable positions with whirling thoughts and feeling like he was failing at meditation. He couldn’t settle his body or his mind.

He had to find his own sweet spot of comfort: “When I did that, it completely upgraded the quality of my experiences, and that's where I first had the tangible experience of bliss,” he says. And you can, too. Light explains how to put meditation in your life’s “rest” category, so it becomes both relatable and a practical application.

Another life category that’s a feature of today’s podcast is happiness. Light travels the world giving talks on happiness, inspiration, and meditation, as well as leading meditation trainings and retreats. He’s been featured in major media, taught celebrity clients and written two popular books. So, prepare to get comfy—with meditation and happiness—and learn how to incorporate more of both into your life.
