Tim Ferriss is a man of many talents, as well as a 3-time New York Times bestselling author with The Four-Hour Workweek, The Four-Hour Body, and now the brand-spankin’ new Four Hour Chef. We spent most of the show goofing off, but Tim drops a ton of truth bombs so listen-up. You guys will dig this one.
Quick note: I just got back from speaking at Dave Asprey’s biohacking conference in San Francisco. Thanks so much to you folks who came up to say “hi.” I couldn’t believe how many listeners made the trip from all corners of the world. I might just have to make that trip to speak in Australia soon…

Tim Ferriss' 5-minute Meditation Strategy
- Choose one song (4-5 minutes long)
- Sit on a cushion with back against the wall
- Breathe deeply and slowly
- Inhalation = visualize vibrant green air
- Exhalation = visualize grey air (stress and anxiety)
- During inhalation, focus on all of the things you’re grateful for in life (family, friends, significant other, career opportunities, roof over your head, etc)
- Repeat to yourself... “I have everything I need and I have plenty of time” over and over until it sinks in and anxiety lifts
Words of Tim Wisdom (Bonus):
“Do not measure the success of your meditation based on your ability to control your thoughts during the meditation session itself. Instead, measure it by how you feel for the rest of the day.”
