CBS’s 60 Minutes will feature a segment on mindfulness in tonight’s prime time airing.

Here are some teasers for the episode that 60 Minutes has posted:

Congressman Tim Ryan is featured and one can’t help but think of mindfulness and congressional gridlock. But mindfulness can help improve the nationwide discourse we have on a number of contentious issues.

Anderson Cooper puts on an EEG (electroencephalogram) cap to see how his brainwaves change in response to his thoughts. (Note: you can see your brain in action with Clarity)
