When You Combine Good Food with Meditation

What do you get when you combine a top notch chef and famous NYC restaurant owner with meditation? Eric Ripert! Charismatic owner of the Le Bernardin restaurant in New York City says: “it is a real pleasure to be able to meditate.”

In a video for Fast Company, Ripert owns up to how he used to be angry and frustrated chef who didn’t think anything of throwing plates on the floor to express himself. But when he started a practice of meditation, he slowly learned to make space for happiness and compassion. His spiritual epiphanies now influence everything he does, in his kitchen and beyond.

Here we go again, yet another key person in our political system practicing yoga. After the most recent political hearing on Benghazi that lasted for over 12 hours, Hillary Clinton replied that it was yoga that helped with her stamina during the extensive meeting.

Last year, Clinton told People that water aerobics and yoga were her exercises of choice. The New York Times also reported on her stamina-building practice, citing friends who said that she had more energy and was practicing yoga while spending more time on her physical fitness.

How can a person with so much on her plate have room for a couple sun salutations each week? Chances are it's the bendy practice that helps: Yoga has been shown to make people more productive, less stressed and generally happier. As the saying goes, if you don't have time to meditate for 20 minutes, you should meditate for an hour. Perhaps the same can be said for yoga.
