Meditation for Extraordinary Performance
by Emily Fletcher | 272 pages

Emily Fletcher used to be a Broadway performer. She was living the dream life. And... When she was 27, her hair was graying, she was always stressed and had chronic insomnia. One of her fellow Broadway performers was always super calm and confident. Emily asked her how she did it. The woman told her that she meditated. Emily rolled her eyes. Then she decided to give meditation a try. After ONE day of meditation, her insomnia was gone. She was hooked. Soon after, she quit Broadway, traveled to India to study more deeply then became a meditation teacher and created something called the “Ziva Technique” which she’s taught to thousands of people. In this book, Emily walks us through the science of WHY meditation is so powerful and then introduces us to the “3 M’s” of her Z Technique: Mindfulness, Meditation and Manifesting. Big Ideas we explore include the science of WHY meditation rocks and a quick exploration of those 3 M's to help us stress less and accomplish more!


Stress Less, Accomplish More is designed to serve as an introduction to not only meditation but also to the three mental tools that make up the Ziva Technique: Mindfulness, Meditation, and Manifesting. This book will give you an explanation of what they are and the science behind how they function as tools for high performers to improve their cognitive function and creativity, while simultaneously releasing stress and improving overall mental and physical health. …

It doesn’t matter what your profession, ambition, religion, expertise, or experience is. Meditation is simply a tool to help you reach your goals; it’s never the goal itself. The main point is this: We meditate to get good at life, not to get good at meditation.

If you want to elevate your performance—to eliminate the effects of stress, improve your mental energy, increase your physical health, expand your creativity, and hone your intuition—you’ve come to the right place. All it takes is the desire to up-level your life and fifteen minutes twice a day. Are you ready to invest in yourself?”

~ Emily Fletcher from Stress Less, Accomplish More

Emily Fletcher used to be a Broadway performer.

She was living the dream life. And… When she was 27, her hair was graying, she was always stressed and had chronic insomnia.

One of her fellow Broadway performers was always super calm and confident. Emily asked her how she did it. The woman told her that she meditated. Emily rolled her eyes. Then she decided to give meditation a try.

After ONE day of meditation, her insomnia was gone. She was hooked. Soon after, she quit Broadway, traveled to India to study more deeply then became a meditation teacher and created something called the “Ziva Technique” which she’s taught to thousands of people.

One of her students is the functional medicine doctor Mark Hyman. He practices her technique daily and wrote the foreword to the book. He says: I encourage everyone to check out the Ziva Technique. I can honestly say I can’t live without it. Now I don’t have time not to meditate.

In this book, Emily walks us through the science of WHY meditation is so powerful and then introduces us to the “3 M’s” of her Z Technique: Mindfulness, Meditation and Manifesting.

As you know if you’ve been following along, I’m a HUGE fan of meditation. I’ve missed ONE day in the last 12+ years. We’ve shared some wisdom in Meditation 101 and our Notes on books like Why Meditate?, Conquest of Mind, and The Relaxation Response.

If you’ve been looking for a book that will help you get started on your meditation journey and/or take your existing practice to the next level, I think you’ll love it. It’s a great place to start.

Of course, the book is packed with Big Ideas and I’m excited to share a few of my favorites so let’s jump straight in!
