Catherine Plano (Executive Coach)Every morning I get up at 5am to meditate for half an hour - I like to listen to binaural beats to allow my brain to go into Theta because when you go into a deep meditation, your brain releases the good feel hormones like serotonin, dopamine and endorphins that make you feel happy. I started meditating a very long time ago, over 20 years ago through my studies in Metaphysics. I also invested many years of my life studying and practicing Buddhism where I invested a lot of time in Ashrams where we practiced meditation daily. Gosh... I could go on about meditation. I wrote a whole section in my book - Getting to the Heart of the Matter. A meditation book that I would recommend is - Meditation for Beginners by Jack Kornfield.
