In this episode...

The guys dive into mental fitness, aka meditation.  It's been shown that meditation can help:

  • Anxiety
  • Asthma
  • Cancer
  • Chronic Pain
  • Depression
  • Heart Disease
  • High Blood Pressure
  • Tension Headache

Seems like that little jerk of a stress hormone cortisol can sometimes get out of control and meditation can wrangle it back in a bit and help prevent a magnitude of issues.  Whether it's mantra meditation (repetitive words or phrases) or mindful meditation (paying attention to the breath and being in the moment) there's a ton of benefits.
