Upgrade Your Operating System

Upgrade Your Operating System

Last month I proposed a model of change not based on self-improvement, but on rethinking your entire relationship to yourself. Mindfulness, or what I refer to here as stepping off the hamster wheel, is a learned skill that research shows is profoundly effective in reducing stress and worrying, improving memory, focus, and relationship quality, as well as empathy and compassion for self and others.

Broken Resolutions?

Broken Resolutions?

Resolutions are tricky. They come with such promise and most of us are brimming with conviction and motivation to stick to them after spending the holiday season brimming with excess food and alcohol. It seems the perfect time to buck up, bear down, do right, break those bad habits and finally feel good about making some positive improvements to ourselves and our lifestyle. But, according to Brain Statistics latest research, of 45% of Americans who make New Year Resolutions, only 8% of people are actually successful at achieving their goals.
