Rivers Cuomo, the front-man for popular rock band Weezer, prizes his meditation practice for its effect on his memory. In fact, he once remarked that he was “about to go under this 45-day meditation retreat, and one of the things that happens to me in these courses is that my memory gets razor-sharp.” Whether you are a writer looking to tap your experience or a student preparing for a final exam, meditation can provide a way to clear out the mental fluff and bring what really matters to the forefront.
Cuomo also believes that meditation helps him overcome his fears. Learn more by reading this blog post from his personal website. http://riverscuomo.com/2010/09/09/rivers-cuomo-on-meditation/
