TED Talk a Day - Day 13: All It Takes is 10 Mindful Minutes by Andy Puddicombe

Here are my notes from Andy Puddicombe's TED talk, All It Takes is 10 Mindful Minutes:
  • Our mind is our most valuable and precious resource, through which we experience every single moment of our life
  • We are so distracted that we are no longer present in the world that we live
  • Our minds are lost in thought 47% of the time
  • Meditation is familiarizing ourselves with the present moment
  • Meditation offers the opportunity, the potential, to step back and get a different perspective
  • We can’t change every little thing that happens to us in life but we can change the way that we experience it
