This week's show is with Dr Kristen Race, a bestselling author, Head of Mindfulness for Solvasa™, and Founder of Mindful Life™. A world-renowned expert in the field of mindfulness, Kristen’s programs and services are rooted in neuroscience and designed to build resilience to modern day stress. As a business owner and mother of two teenagers, Kristen understands that life is busy!
She focuses her work on making mindfulness practices accessible and easily incorporated into our daily lives. Instead of chasing the elusive goal of work / life balance, she creates simple exercises to bring balance to our brains. Her work has been featured in The New York Times, The Washington Post, USA TODAY and CNN, to name a few. She is a two-time TEDx speaker and has trained over 50,000 leaders in her methods worldwide.
In today’s show we spoke about the changing world and how we've ended up as a species dealing with a brand new challenge and probably our biggest one in our history: our relationship to technology, and specifically our digital devices. We explored the terrain of today's world, the potentially harmful effects on the brain, the addictive nature of tech and how you can reclaim your sovereignty and choose to use your mobile device from a conscious place.
I wasn't expecting to find this show as interesting as I did, so don't worry if you're not into mindfulness or neuroscience, if you're a human who has a phone and is interested in living in an aligned and wild way, I think you'll find this a very useful episode.
