In our lives, we experience a lot of turmoil and unpleasant reactions to our equilibrium. Sometimes, we are not in control of the things around us and what happens to us; as a balance of faith and probability, our lives are essentially dictated by a roll of dice. However, through a patient, focused epicentre, we can enhance our experience on earth by utilizing more of our active brain, creativity, and consciousness. I sat down at The DoubleTree in Eatontown, NJ to discuss mindful meditation tips, tricks, techniques, and mandates of practice with an entrepreneurial entertainer, Famous Joe. Best known for his Instagram antics, Famous Joe revealed to me in a group yoga session his mnemonic devices toward reaching a state of premeditated peace.

  1. Clear your conscious cavity. “Allow yourself to take time to recalibrate, rejuvenate, and revitalize your central consciousness”, Joe shared with me.
  1. Refresh your reality. Anxiety is a crippling manifestation of mental illness that hundreds of millions of people around the world are obliged to cope and live with. Hitting that “reset” or refreshing your mental cavity is an exercise of psychological liberation; make sure your set and setting is correct before attempting to meditate.
  2. Go for your instinct. If you feel you need more time before attempting to reenter the meditative space, it is perfectly normal to fail a few times before being able to orient oneself into a calm, peace-laden state of mind and body.
