    This was absolutely wonderful. I love the information shared about intention and motivation and the fact that we have to be aware during that 5% of the day, in a way that helps us reach those intentions. Maybe by practicing meditation and mindfulness we can increase that conscious brain activity to 6 or 7% of the day. But really – thoroughly enjoyed this.

    Parneet Pal, your wisdom was so enjoyable to listen to. For some reason, I imagine us in the kitchen cooking up some delightful dishes that our respective ancestors taught. Thanks for giving us such wonderful recipes for living life.

    Though I am not new to mindfulness, I consider my self to be in infancy stage of my development. As such, I found Parnett Pal’s perspective to be very interesting and inspiring. So much to think about, I can hardly wait to reflect on her remarks. I would be interested in a list of her references, loved how the work of others was woven into her presentation.

    Very inspirational, thank you. I think developing sustained healthy habits is incredible difficult. Your points about incorporating them in daily life routines, incrementally, might just work for me. I’ll give it a go. Thank you.

    I appreciated the advice about turning a slow brain rational intention into an emotional response, so that you are more likely to act on it. Thank you

  14. Justin March 20, 2020 at 4:10 pm

    Very well done. I am also a clinician practicing in the PNW and enjoyed your advice on developing an intent to inspire behavioral change. Would love to know how you became the Chief Science Officer for Wisdom Labs, transitioning from clinical medicine to the realm of preventive and proactive health.

  16. Susan Long March 20, 2020 at 12:33 pm

    How do we get access to the Wisdom Labs information?

  17. Erin March 20, 2020 at 12:14 pm

    Found this video about establishing a daily practice so useful and inspiring. I’ve been a regular meditator for a few years now and I always love hearing about the science behind having a regular meditation practice and the real benefits around it, it’s just amazing what happens in the brain when we meditate and practice mindfulness regularly. I really do wish everyone in the world knew about it. Thanks for this video & I’m looking up Wisdom Labs now 🙂

  18. Annie March 20, 2020 at 11:44 am

    Thank you!, I am still trying to figure out consistency in my daily practice and Parneet Pal’s discussion of really clarifying a deep ‘why’ + starting small and not being afraid to change things up is so helpful!, much appreciated.

  19. Vivian March 20, 2020 at 9:25 am

    Very informative and helpful. Gave me a solid starting point.

  20. Anne Shaw March 20, 2020 at 8:50 am

    Really enjoyed the specificity of this presentation on motivation and intention. I am in the second day of isolation in the pandemic, after returning to Canada from Australia. I am 72 and no longer in the work place but have endlless things that I am interested in and do.
    This presentation helped me identify again the novelty factor in what I am drawn to,, and to refocus again on what is most important. Thank you.

  21. Michelle from NJ March 20, 2020 at 6:31 am

    Thanks for all you do

  22. Julie March 19, 2020 at 9:40 pm

    Amazing! Thank you. I will be checking out Wisdom Labs. I want to work there :). I’m a psychologist in San Diego.

  23. Debbie Carraway March 19, 2020 at 9:36 pm

    Great talk. Thank you so much.

  24. Carolyn March 19, 2020 at 9:25 pm

    A little disappointing. I presumed that there would be more guided practice, but there’s is so much talk and explaining at the start of the two videos I viewed. So much about the virus, alerts, worries and concerns for up to the 6 minutes point on the first video and on the second one-very interesting for 10 minutes explaining the whys and how to be mindful. Maybe some people need that, but it’s not for me.

  25. Esperanza Suarez March 19, 2020 at 7:50 pm

    Thank you, so clear and inspiring!
