This instructive meditation infographic was designed for those people who have "ever considered (but instantly dismissed) the practice." From Happify in collaboration with ABC News anchor Dan Harris, 'The Skeptic's Guide to Meditation" uses information from Harris's book '10% Happier' in addition to other sources.

The meditation infographic starts off by listing the four biggest misconceptions skeptics hold, such as not having enough time, having too busy a mind and having to be an Enya fan. The chart offers scientific information regarding the brain, stress, compassion, self-acceptance and health benefits like lower blood pressure and better sleep. The guide defines mindfulness and explains how to get started in three simple steps.

By focusing on the feeling of your breath, you can break even lifelong-held harmful habits. The full infographic can be viewed at Happify.com.
