Emily Fletcher, founder of Ziva Meditation comments:

I want to share with you why I think you should meditate, not caffeinate - just kidding, I'm not going to tell you what to do.

But I did get invited to the Google headquarters here in New York City to give a talk on why meditation is the new caffeine.

I love that meditation and caffeine are even being used in the same sentence, because it means that meditation has officially been rebranded as a productivity tool.

Think about the reason why most of us drink caffeine - because we're exhausted, we're looking for energy, we really have to focus in and execute on a task quickly.

So here's why I think meditation actually is the new caffeine: when you meditate, you're giving your body rest that is five times deeper than sleep - this is not an insignificant point; when you're meditating you're de-exciting your nervous system, slowing down your metabolic rate in a way that not only releases stress from your nervous system but also makes you more awake on the other side.

You're going to have more computing power, more energy to accomplish your tasks.
