Imagine if all the politicians in Washington D.C. turned the lights down, took a deep breath and just sat quietly. That's what Rep. Tim Ryan (D-OH) advocates and practices every day. It's called mindfulness meditation, and it's based on Buddhist principles. He explains it all in his new book "A Mindful Nation."
This morning on "Starting Point with Soledad O'Brien" Rep. Ryan explains the benefits of meditation in everyday life and how it can be practiced in education and politics.
