We get it, we’re busy, and the list of to-do’s is endless. But a busy life doesn’t mean your brain needs to suffer. How? Sleeping more.
Instead of thinking of mindfulness as escaping from my world, I started finding ways to incorporate it into the mundane, everyday activities. In other words, I still have things that I need to get done, and not only have I found some simple ways to incorporate mindfulness into that work, but I have discovered that mindfulness enhances my work!
We have a fetish with productivity. And it’s killing us. Well, someone had to say it. We live in this fast-paced world that demands we do more, do better, and function at a higher level — all the time. I’m sure you can relate. I know I can.
