'Completion Addiction' Is Destroying Your Productivity. Try These 3 Strategies to Focus on What Really Matters

Aug 08, 2019

It's 2 a.m. I'm wide awake. Thoughts about the vendor I need to reply to, the email I forgot to write, and my overflowing inbox spin through my head, pinging me awake like mental smartphone notifications. Finally, I've had enough. I get out of bed and pull out my computer.

I open my inbox: "121 unread messages." 

I spend the next two hours flying through my inbox. It's a blur of...

Feeling Stressed Out By Your Email? You Might Be Suffering From Email Apnea

Aug 07, 2019

Have you ever wondered why, after spending hours on email, you feel tense and tight? Why you feel more anxious than before?  Or why, even when do you stop, your mind keeps spinning

Bring Your Meetings Back to Life With This 60-Second Fix

Aug 07, 2019

The modern office meeting is broken. We've known this for decades, which is why people say things like "death by meeting," "analysis paralysis," or Apple CEO Tim Cook's truism, "the longer the meeting, the less is accomplished."

And yet, in many organizations, meetings continue to drain energy, creativity, and time. In my own experience, it's become clear to me that the ordinary mindset in most meetings is best described as...

Forgot What It Feels Like to Relax? Try This Science-Based Practice for Dissolving Stress

Aug 07, 2019

We live in a world that seems to have forgotten how to relax.

At work, we rush from one meeting to the next. We use the microscopic gaps in our day to fire off emails and texts. And we frantically try to complete all the items on our to-do list by the end of the day, and mostly fail.

At home, we finally have the space to take a breath and relax. And yet most of the things we do to take the edge off the day keep us stimulated and caught in...

Harvard Psychologists Reveal the Real Reason We're All So Distracted

Aug 07, 2019

When it comes to how to be more focused and less distracted, we've got things inside out.

We tend to think that we are distracted because of the devices in our pocket, Instagram, Facebook, text messages, phone calls, and the thousands of other notifications beckoning for our attention.

But according to the research of two Harvard psychologists, the real problem isn't our chaotic environment, its our minds.

The Truth About Stress

Jun 27, 2019

By Nate Klemp, PhD

Today we want to call into question some conventional wisdom that most of us hold about stress.

Stress is bad.  Ease is good.  And mindfulness is about shifting from the former to the later.

Or is it?

When we began our mindfulness practice, this quickly turned into one of our core beliefs.  We were both stressed out and overwhelmed in our lives – searching desperately for some way to find a greater sense...

Using Driving to Practice Mindfulness

Jun 27, 2019

By Nate Klemp, PhD

If you spend even a fraction of your time each week driving, we've got a practice just for you.

The fact is most of us spend at least some time in the car.

But how often do we use this everyday act as an opportunity to materially deepen our practice and change the wiring of our brains? For most of us – the answer is rarely.  We’re too busy rushing to get to work, feeling irritation at the drivers around us,...

The 5,000 Year Old Tool for Stress

Jun 27, 2019

Here's a tip for dissolving stress that's not even close to being cutting edge -- it's thousands of years old.

If you could go back to the city streets of 5th century BCE Athens, you might find shabbily clothed older man with bulging eyes and a potbelly who often stood in the market square questioning his thoughts in public and those of passersby.  Today we would likely dismiss a man like this as “crazy,” “weird,”...

3 Ways to Bring Kindness to Work

Jun 27, 2019

By Nate Klemp, PhD

Here’s a business paradox:  kindness breeds organizational success.  

It’s a paradox because when we think about how to optimize creativity, productivity, and other metrics of high performing organizations, compassion rarely enters the conversation.  We talk instead about more tangible metrics:  things like increasing efficiency, billable hours, sales numbers, and other more quantifiable...
