Mindful Meditation

As a journalist, sociologist and researcher, I have observed profound success and great suffering. It’s not surprising that few individuals know how to find balance in an unbalanced world; learning to surf one’s 65,000 daily thoughts is not an easy task.  

By creating a new relationship with your thoughts can profoundly impact you well-being at every level. By cultivating the mind, regulating energy and information flow, one can learn to to be with emotions rather than fight them. 

Last year, a Time magazine article posited that there is a “Mindful Revolution.” Meditation also has become a popular topic in the business community, with the belief that this ancient practice can help increase the bottom line.  

By introducing these practices to the business world, we are not only seeing increased productivity, but also individuals that are more adaptive, healthier and happier, both in and out of the workplace. By incorporating these techniques into your daily life, you also create more opportunity for wellbeing and peace. 

Today, neuroscientists have produced brain scans that prove that meditation can actually change the size of key regions of our brains, improving memory, making us more compassionate and resilient under stress. These changes impact every aspect of our lives, including how we interact with our work.

Arianna Huffington, editor of the Huffington Post, stated that, “There’s nothing touchy-feely about increased profits. This is a tough economy; stress-reduction and mindfulness don’t just make us happier and healthier, they’re a proven competitive advantage for any business that wants one.”  Apple Computer, Nortel Networks and Google have all already instituted mindfulness training and wellness opportunities on-site.

A Personal Program

After many years of work and research, I created a six-week integrated program that teaches participants the science behind neuroplasticity and Mindful Meditation, introducing the most effective meditation tools, and creating individualized practices for an enhanced mind-body connection. Participants found that not only can we rewire our brains, but we can also change our attitudes. 

Cultivating a personal practice is difficult, and, like with any new skill, you need a teacher that can guide you. If you chose to embark on a program, I recommend you find a skilled practitioner. If you can breathe, you can meditate; it may seem simple, but it is not easy. A daily practice helps many live healthier, more joyful and productive lives. ?

Drew Limsky



Drew Limsky joined Lifestyle Media Group in August 2020 as Editor-in-Chief of South Florida Business & Wealth. His first issue of SFBW, October 2020, heralded a reimagined structure, with new content categories and a slew of fresh visual themes. “As sort of a cross between Forbes and Robb Report, with a dash of GQ and Vogue,” Limsky says, “SFBW reflects South Florida’s increasingly sophisticated and dynamic business and cultural landscape.”

Limsky, an avid traveler, swimmer and film buff who holds a law degree and Ph.D. from New York University, likes to say, “I’m a doctor, but I can’t operate—except on your brand.” He wrote his dissertation on the nonfiction work of Joan Didion. Prior to that, Limsky received his B.A. in English, summa cum laude, from Emory University and earned his M.A. in literature at American University in connection with a Masters Scholar Award fellowship.

Limsky came to SFBW at the apex of a storied career in journalism and publishing that includes six previous lead editorial roles, including for some of the world’s best-known brands. He served as global editor-in-chief of Lexus magazine, founding editor-in-chief of custom lifestyle magazines for Cadillac and Holland America Line, and was the founding editor-in-chief of Modern Luxury Interiors South Florida. He also was the executive editor for B2B magazines for Acura and Honda Financial Services, and he served as travel editor for Conde Nast. Magazines under Limsky’s editorship have garnered more than 75 industry awards.

He has also written for many of the country’s top newspapers and magazines, including The New York Times, Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, Miami Herald, Boston Globe, USA Today, Worth, Robb Report, Afar, Time Out New York, National Geographic Traveler, Men’s Journal, Ritz-Carlton, Elite Traveler, Florida Design, Metropolis and Architectural Digest Mexico. His other clients have included Four Seasons, Acqualina Resort & Residences, Yahoo!, American Airlines, Wynn, Douglas Elliman and Corcoran. As an adjunct assistant professor, Limsky has taught journalism, film and creative writing at the City University of New York, Pace University, American University and other colleges.
