ask dean // listener question on: meditation

Listener Question: “Hi Dean, I’m a full time saleswoman working 60-ish hour workweeks at a boutique fabrics and fashion firm — which means i’m always busy, constantly connected, and I’m always around clients and customers … And when I’m not dealing with clients and customers, I’m dealing with my co-workers in the office… I never feel like there are enough hours in the day and the stress continues to build up for me. I’ve heard from several sources that meditation and mindfulness can help… and although it seems like i’m lost and hopeless when it comes to meditation — I KNOW there’s gotta be a practical, bull-shit-free way for me to approach and apply meditation in my daily life so that i can regain my peace of mind and (hopefully) begin to mange my chaotic work-life without burning myself out — i’m hoping this is where you come in and show me something I can actually use. Thanks so much!”
