The Need to be Liked

Walking in the Woods

Practicing mindfulness and meditation is like shining a light in the dark closet of your mind.  You find things in there that have always existed but you never paid attention to.

My heart rate started getting much faster and my I found it hard to catch my breath. Soon my heart was pounding and I wasn't sure what was happening.

Our Obsession with Productivity

obsessed with productivity

On days I'm not productive I feel guilty, like my time on Earth is being wasted. Do you ever get that feeling where you should be doing something productive every second? Or whatever you are doing is a waste of time if it's not making progress on anything important or urgent?
