Mindfulness

The always-on, on-demand, accessible-anywhere nature of today's world can make it hard to quiet your mind when it's time to rest. Maybe these can help:
  • Watch brainiac (and brain scientist) Jill Bolte Taylor describe her experience with having a massive stroke--and how she dealt with it as it was happening. It's an amazing and touching story. And, yes, I cried. Available on TED.
  • On a lighter side, try listening to Daby Toure. What language is he singing? Don't know; don't care. It's the melody and the feeling in his songs that captures my heart and lets me unwind.
