My 100 Mile March – And all of the Benefits Noticed

At the end of February, I decided to set some pretty aggressive goals for March.  Goals varied in nature, but were linked to areas of personal growth, professional development, and overall improvement of my health.

Approaching Social Situations from a new Perspective

For this post, I just wanted to share a small tid-bit from a podcast I listened to by Sam Harris this week.

In his newly released course,“The Waking up Course”, he introduces the practice of mindfulness meditation and mindfulness techniques by guiding the listener through the process.  Throughout the course, he also shares his own philosophy as it relates to reasoning more effectively and understanding yourself and the people around you.
