  • Everytime I come and comment I don’t find my previous comments which means this song is still getting the recognition it deserves. The song is so good and the movie too.
    But let’s take an moment to appreciate how Kehlani, Margot Robbie and Will Smith are so talented ��������������

  • i just wanted to say thank you for this song because of this Yena, Yujin and Chaeyeon performed this and i almost died but that’s okay

  • MY SILLY DREAM��TO BE A GANGSTERS, ASSASSIN, A SECRET ONE…..WHO KNOWS HOW TO SING,DANCE, SPORTS EVERYTHING,N IF POSSIBLE WITH THE MOST POWERFUL N UNIQUE POWERS CAM FROM ANOTHER GALAXY ����

  • I disagree with you people. I heard lots of useful ideas that could help save one’s life. Yall looking for flaws? Yall will always find them, cause nothing is all inclusive nor one size fits all. Thanks man!

  • Jeremiah 33:3 Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and show thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not.
    Jesus. Alpha and Omega. Alway’s keeping it ��

  • This is what happens folks when people have absolutely no clue whatsoever and their basis is always on statistics and studies which are hogwash

  • what free meditation sources do you use (you mentioned this at the beginning of this video)?? I would love to try them!

    edit: I posted comment this before watching the video to the end lol. I am wondering which spotify/YouTube channels you would recommend specifically? the amount of options is quite overwhelming.

  • Wait, first you say lower refined carbs, then you tell people to eat bread? Your missing the boat there, big time. Bread is worse than beer (much).

  • I love my therapist and my meds have help me a lot..I can noticed my emotional state been bad when I don’t take it-unrelated I want to be a social worker-

  • So much <3 for this guy. In a sea of inauthentic, self-serving, and unethical practitioners, he rides a wave of truth and takes you with him for free ;)

  • Hiya! As both a meditation & yogasana teacher, I agree that the wellness industry is (by and large) exploitative. Let me not even get into all the sex scandals and unethical behaviour that many ‘gurus’ are accused and guilty of…

    What really bothers me though is this ‘one-size-fits-all’ approach that the wellness industry takes. Mindfulness is NOT the best practice for many people with mental health and/or trauma related problems. It can often lead them deeper into a depression and re-trigger trauma. In which case, simple breathing exercises would be more effective, but that’s a call for a qualified health care professional to advise on. Can an app do that?

    Moreover, I don’t get why people are paying that much for their meditation practices to begin with and on a recurring annual basis…? I understand that in the beginning, one would need to try out a range of different meditation technique methods (mindfulness, mantra, vayu, kriya, candle gazing etc) to see which one resonates/benefits them the most…But after a couple months, one should really be practicing on their own which is kinda the point actually.

    Genuine wellness businesses are only exploitative if their end goal ISN’T to empower you to be able to practice solo….And that goes for BOTH free & paid for resources.

    🙂

  • I like the Insight Timer app:) They have many free guided meditation, but I like their music only timer which I listen to when stretching

    I also like youtuber Simplehappyzen:) she has a meditation playlist:)

  • I would really love for you to talk about being an unsociable extrovert, I personally am going through a very long unsociable phase despite being an extrovert at my core

  • I subscript to Headspace and I’m considering cancel it. It’s too expensive and I should start meditate by myself but I love Andy’s voice(hate his character) and structure of the app.

    Ps. thank you for people like you that I start doubt how shady this business

  • Very good video, as usual. Yeah, just the capitalist nature of websites or apps for any niche group is fairly ridiculous; but what else can you expect at this point. I personally use podcast for my meditation, which are free. There are other methods that I use that are outside of just that. If I’m having a particularly rough episode, I will go out for a 5-10 mile walk depending on the severity. For smaller cases, I tend to just post a quote I have found encouraging onto my Instagram(which is the only reason why I have one), in hopes that it not only helps my mental state at the moment, but maybe someone else either at the time or in the future.

  • I am sooooo outraged by people making money off meditation any zen center will teach you for FREE going there to sit (zen mediation is called “sitting) is free retreats are relatively cheap and every zen center I know will discount or let you attend for free if you can’t afford it (Empty Gate Zen Center in Berkeley California retreats are $60 a day which includes 3 vegetarian meals and floor space to sleep and they will let you attend for free if you can’t afford it). Treeleaf Zendo is an online zen sangha with members all over the world, the teacher is american living in Japan, totally free they take no donations whatsoever (if you have extra money, the teacher says give it to someone who needs it), they have online sits, ceremonies, retreats, and is a very caring and involved community. PS why are you not a life coach? You are genuine, honest, kind, intelligent, insightful, encouraging and just an all-round fabulous person. (ok rant over)

  • slightly off topic but my new quote is “If you don’t prioritize your life, someone else will.” Greg McKeown (becoming an essentialist interview on youtube)

  • I LOVE your videos!Thank you for sharing your thoughts!
    I believe that like every other “industry”, the wellness industry is all about maximizing profit. It makes sense from a business perspective. We don’t live in an ideal world so people need to be a bit more suspicious of all the “experts’ motives”!
    Having said that, I feel that promoting wellness shouldn’t be an industry in the first place. I believe that it should be something taught at school. I find making profit exploiting someone’s weakness unethical. I feel that many of these companies are as unethical as a fortune teller that promises to tell someone what the future holds. They take a helpful tool and use it in a harmful way. Luckily enough, not everyone in this industry is like that!

  • I understand why the apps and courses cost money because there are production costs involved and the developers need to live, but honestly, you’d be much better off just borrowing like 3 books from the library, reading those, and you’ll know how to meditate and practice mindfulness. Putting a price tag on certain practices makes them seem out of reach for the people who might really benefit from them, but that’s just par for the course for the capitalist hellscape we live in.

  • You don’t need to spend any money at all in order to meditate. Also you don’t need to have a phone. It’s one of those things you don’t need any equipment in order to practise. I hear you and share some of your thoughts but meditation apps are a trend from the last couple of years. surely (and in my opinion, unfortunately) it will continue evolving and such, but i prefer to stay resistant to it, i believe loading us with tools to perform very basic human actions will only make us feel more useless over time in terms on what we believe we can achieve with our body, or without much capitalistic involvement.

  • good evening sir/mam This tutorial video has been really beneficial!!disease can be fatal if not treated well. Every ailment depends on the lifestyle of a person and everyone should follow a healthy lifestyle along with correct,medication. You can prefer planet Ayurveda for treatment in natural ways and manufacturing products with no side effects and better results and no side effects.

  • Love your content! I use the free version of the Calm app. I listen to free guided meditations from Tess Whitehurst on YouTube. Her stuff is a mix of new age and Paganism!

  • I recommend Micheal Sealey on youtube, especially for when going to sleep, his voice is really calming. He has lots of guided meditations and “sleep hypnosis” videos. They are really good if you are just getting into meditating.

  • Great video Cinzia!:)
    I have an old mp3 player with some guided meditations, I keep using it since 2007! not even thinking of paying a monthly fee

  • I am an ESL teacher/tutor, so I think about the language of things a lot. There is an activity I often do that I refer to as “flexibility training”, and that most people call “yoga”, which was originally a religious term for various spiritual practices. However, when I speak to my students about hobbies or exercise or whatever, we say “yoga” because a) it is easier, and b) it is the term that they already know. I guess my point is that is seems impossible to fight the tides of capitalism and culture around anything, wellness included. Anyway, I’ll never pay to meditate lol

  • I introduced myself to meditation through this course that you can audit for frer: https://es.coursera.org/learn/self-reflection-meditation It’s very easy to follow and the instructor is a former NASA engineer who keeps it away from religion and into a more human nature based approach. Very recommended!

  • Still reasonable advice overall. Eat less cake and soft drinks and more vegetables. Edit I note that many people who spend their lives indoors or have darker skins in northern climates may benefit immunologically from vitamin D as it is often low in these populations.

  • Hi! I believe that we live in a society with less “clean air “so that some clever men to being able to sell us “used oxygen masks”! If some one wants to live healthier, there are all of them free in internet!

  • I find the guided meditation on YouTube to be some of the most helpful stuff and definitely has made me want to try out apps like headspace. I’ll have to try some you mentioned here. Thank you for another great video

  • Great vid! As well as library books (thank you fellow GenX-er below), surely there are some cheap second hand books around and there are plenty of free YouTube videos to get started in mindfulness and meditation. I don’t know but there are probably free podcasts. Alternatively, just get some instructions from the internet and give it a go. I would hate to think anyone is put off trying because of the cost of a trendy app!!!

  • Thank you so much for having this interview with Zach, Monica. His story and experiences are quite impressive and as an oncology nurse, I have to give him props for going through research trials and being the “guinea pig” that so many other patients after him will benefit from. I will definitely buy some merch from AAMLM to help support him and his family!

  • I love your channel, you always seem to come up with videos of the topics I’ve been thinking about! I recently read “McMindfulness: How Mindfulness Became the New Capitalist Spirituality” by Ronald Purser, it’s really interesting (although you can probably gather the gist from the title). Part of his argument is that practising meditation without the ethical guidance of Buddhism (right speech, right action, right livelihood etc) makes it no better than a “concentration-improving mind hack”.

    It actually put me off meditation for a while, but now I’m back on it regularly. I use Insight too it’s a great app!

  • Wow! This was a very interesting video. I agreed with everything you said. O: I use Calm but me being the cheap b*tch that I am, I only use the free sessions that they offer. xD Shoot, I ain’t paying that much for something I can get for free on YouTube. xDDD
