In this episode, Dustin talks with Chris Bailey about his latest book, How to Calm Your Mind: Finding Presence and Productivity in Anxious Times.
You'll discover How the analog and digital worlds affect calm and anxiety in vastly different ways. How our desire for the neurochemical dopamine eventually leads us to feel anxious and savor everyday experiences less. How the pursuit of productivity and accomplishment is more addictive than we think. How there are countless sources of hidden stress buried within our days. How conducting a “stimulation fast” can rebalance our mind to feel less anxious and calmer. And how “busyness” is as much a state of mind as it is an actual state of life
From battling work-life balance issues to developing a more expansive reservoir of energy, How to Calm Your Mind is full of tangible takeaways to overcome anxiety and live a fuller, more balanced life. Being calmer ultimately leads us to become more engaged, focused, and deliberate—while making us more productive and satisfied with our days and lives. Counterintuitive though it might sound, in an anxious world, investing in calm is not only a helpful strategy for self-care, it’s also one of the best productivity strategies around.
