Meditation is HARD.
Keeping still and staying focused is so unnatural that most who give meditation a try don’t keep it up.
So it’s important to know:
If we meditate for 50 hours but see only small benefits, well… we would be better off spending our time on other happiness hacks.
To answer those questions I looked at three meta-analyses, which integrated the results of almost 20,000 meditation studies.
What I found surprised the bonkers out of me.
