Play • 17 min

Unplug to discover the benefits of introspection.

Do you ever feel as though you’re living in an age of constant distraction? As if the notifications on your phone are being uploaded directly to your brain? This can often leave us feeling like our brain has too many tabs open and it’s not long before that feeling gets overwhelming. As a result, it’s hardly surprising that many of us lack the time and mental energy to devote to personal development. But Crawford aims to change that. The World Beyond Your Head (2014) is a how-to guide for thriving in the modern world. Packed with critical research about technology’s impact on our attention span, memory, relationships, and more, Crawford’s analysis provides practical steps for building a healthy relationship with technology and learning how to disconnect while delving inward.

Dr. Kristine Klussman shares two short posts on living your values and the path to self-connection.

She found her work with cancer and cardiac patients inspiring, uplifting, and humbling. She found so many of those going through life-threatening illness were - sometimes for the first time in their lives - absolutely clear what truly mattered to them: authenticity and connection. In 2016, she founded a non-profit to focus full-time on trying to understand, explain and teach what she now believes is the single most meaningful and rewarding aspect of our existence.

What they specifically do is unclear, because there are at least a dozen or more different ones. Adaptogens comprise a category of herbal medicinal and nutritional products promoting adaptability, resilience, and survival of living organisms in stress. In this episode, Jason Campbell and Dave Rabin talk about the key ideas on the future of adaptogenic technology. Listen out for: * The deteriorating effect of the pandemic on our stress levels. * Difference between ‘eustress’ and ‘distress’. * What happens to your body when you are in distress. * Demonstration of a stress reducer tool called Apollo. * Highly effective stress relief techniques.
