“While the clock-punching, scarcity model of “just so many hours in a day” keeps us pressured and diminished, a more relaxed, expansive approach to time reveals how much of this stress is self-induced.”

Book –

I’m still learning a lot from The Heart of the Buddha’s Teaching: Transforming Suffering into Peace, Joy, and Liberation, by Thích Nhất Hạnh. I usually have a tendency to rush through books to check them off my list (working on that!). In this case, I’ve made a deliberate attempt to slown down, not push, and let what I’m learning sink-in along the way.

 

 

Music –

Another great cycling workout mix, this time recommended by Jonathan Blyer, who’s also profiled in the latest installment of Doing What You Love.
