The James Altucher Show

Ep. 32 Tim Ryan: The Congressman Who Meditates


Tim Ryan, U. S representative for the 13th district of Ohio and author of A Mindful Nation, joins The James Altucher Show. When you think of politics and Congress, meditation is not usually something that jumps out in your mind. But today, that is precisely the case. Tim joins The James Altucher Show to talk about how cutting stress… Being mindful and aware of others is the number one way to create a less chaotic nation. Just like James, Tim has created a daily practice for himself to exercise his idea muscle and figure out alternative routes to everyday problems. Tim presents listeners with a simple strategy that when applied and practiced can help with any problems that you may have... We live in a world where there is a pill for any problem. Do we want to live in a society where our children, politicians, teachers, family, and friends are heavily medicated? Or are there more effective and natural ways to heal our bodies and minds? James and Tim go through several techniques that everyone can use to better their lives with minimal amount of effort.
