    Elisha I first heard you speak when I participated in the Mindfulness Summit and have since subscribed to your blog and have your book ‘The Now Effect’. I wanted to say thank you for this article and for all your guidance and teaching. It is making a real difference in my life.

    I medical school I ruptured a brain aneurysm, almost died, had two brain surgeries, and took a year to recover. Before that I had been all work and “busy-ness.” With a second chance at life, I took more time with my family, exercised, and meditated. Despite studying less, my performance improved as I was happier and more efficient. Busy-ness just leads to fatigue and frustration leading to ineffectiveness. Today many studies have shown when companies allow workers some time for rest, meditation, play, exercise or a combination, creativeness and performance improve. Take vacations as well.
