Doing Nothing Can Be the Key to Happiness

Martina Sheehan and Susan Pearse are passionate about helping us conquer the trap of
“busyness” that many of us have bought into and even take pride in. They explain how our obsession with being busy keeps us from accessing the best of what life has to offer. This thought-provoking conversation describes the brain science behind why it is important to create space in your day. It explores what “doing nothing” means in this context, and how such action (or lack of action) could be a key to greater happiness. Martina and Susan outline many simple practices to add to your day that will enhance your ability to “wake up” and be present, including mindful listening, creating a space day, spending more time in silence, and creating a not-to-do list.
