Men, Mindfulness, & Meditation: Observing the Rising Trend in Men & Self-Care

Notes on meditation from a male:
“I define meditation as little as one minute or longer to reflect upon yourself. How I feel physically, mentally, and emotionally. If there’s something bothering me in any form, this is my moment to identify it and recognize it, rather than run from it. I may not have the answer for it right away, but meditation allows me to adapt accordingly.”

Fearlessness “I approach that mentality with everything I do – my drive and work ethic comes from my father who has never shied away from hard work, cutting corners or putting in the extra time. I also attribute it to pure naivety. At that age, I didn’t think fear actually existed. I still kind of don’t.”

Despite increasing pressures to create new and original content– products of a culture that drives the multi-billion dollar influencer market that is social media–Drew has built @nikestories differently, rising to influencer status by looking to and honoring the past, pulling from archives and mixing old with the new.
Years later, with a life expanding into multiple fields and an ongoing joint project with HighSnobiety to chronicle the complete history of every Air Jordan in history, I chatted with Drew about his life behind the shoes, his unconventional work journey, and finding balance.
