In honor of #MindfulMarch, we wanted to bring you two short, special editions of the Blinkist Podcast. Last week, we reviewed the best non-fiction books on mindfulness; today we ask whether mindfulness is the future of work and self care. There’s no doubt that mindfulness appeals to a lot of people. Like local woman, internet superhero, and podcast co-host, Caitlin. She and Ben sat down to work through their conflicted feelings about mindfulness, talk about the perks of loud breathing, and discuss a bunch of other relevant stuff, like - What’s the link between mindfulness and modern stress levels? - Does practicing mindfulness help heal traumas like PTSD? - Why are big-time corporations like Google investing in mindfulness? - Does being mindful really make you more creative and more productive? Will it give you good hair? - What is snake brain? Whether you’re a mindfulness skeptic or a true believer, their 20 minute conversation might persuade you to consider the opposing view. ____ Related podcasts: The Blinkist Primer: What Top Non-Fiction Says About Mindfulness And Meditation Is That Even A Thing?
