Something pretty awesome happened this week: yours truly was featured on the Calm podcast, where we talked about mindful productivity.
As someone who speaks English as a second language and cares a lot about mental health, it's doubly exciting to be able to talk to such a global audience of curious minds. If you're a Calm user, go give it a listen in the app!
This week, I want to discuss something which I hope will make you feel better next time you struggle to stay focused: did you know your brain is designed to be distracted?
Instead of fighting it (and lose), you can use structured distraction to make the most of your breaks. Scroll down to read more about how that works.
We'll also discuss how you can close the empathy gap to be kinder to other people and yourself, and how you can better evaluate your ideas.
Oh, and if you're looking for your next book to read and want to learn about how the human mind works, lots of great recommendations here.
Enjoy the read, and hit reply if you have any questions, feedback, or want to say hello!
