Ep. 182: Meditation is not just for Buddhists and hippies, and it can help you too

Doug- @DJDoug

Strickland- @NiceGuyonBiz

Sharon- @SharonSalzberg

Recently, more business executives have begun to utilize meditation and mindfulness within the workplace. Some larger companies and corporations have even brought employees on retreats, paid instructors to come in and teach the basics, and set aside time in the weekly work schedule for folks to meditate. Sharon Salzberg knows all about this, hear more on The Nice Guys today.

Here are some of the questions we answer on the show today:

Does meditation work for everyone?

The term meditation used to be synonymous with Buddhism and religion in my mind, has that changed or is it just the perception has changed?

There are all kinds of meditation, mindfulness, lovingkindness, body scan, mantra, so many. As a newbie, how should we choose which is right for us?

Can 10 minutes of meditation a day really change your life?

Corporate america is really catching on, can you give a couple examples of what companies are doing to and why do they see the benefit to meditation in the workplace?

How can meditation help with your daily routine...things like focus and discipline?

Arianna Huffington Interview - Publishing Powerhouse

Publishing powerhouse  @ariannahuff  is sleeping her way to the top. Check out how she does it.

Publishing powerhouse @ariannahuff is sleeping her way to the top. Check out how she does it.


Sleep your way to the top. In her new book The Sleep Revolution- Transforming your life, one night at a time. Arianna Huffington wants to start a new revolution to get more sleep. Hear all about it on The Nice Guys Podcast. Here are some of the questions you will hear on the episode today:

Sleep deprivation is cultural. Doctors, truck drivers, students and other fields show the tougher the better. An attitude of "I'll sleep later" or “I’ll sleep when I am dead,” prevails, but is this really a good thing?

Absenteeism and presenteeism (showing up but not being productive). What is going on in the world today as it pertains to sleep?

You reference study after study, dozens if not over a hundred studies proving that In losing sleep people are not getting more done. They are actually getting less done. So why do you think this is the case?

We are less healthy, mentally disconnected and uglier when we are sleep deprived. Why aren't we taking more action to correct this?

You talk about someone that took asleeping pill and later discovered she ordered hooker clothes while under the influence. What's up with the world and the overuse of sleep medication Arianna?

People turn to drugs too quickly. You reference study after study pointing to this as a solution. What are the dangers in this and what is the solution?

The world thinks it's ok to be sleep deprived. Is that Changing in 2016?

#SleepRevolution

Ep. 121: Interview with Productivity Master Chris Bailey

Chris Bailey published an incredible book called The Productivity Project, Accomplishing more by managing your time, attention and energy.

I'll let Chris tell you a little about himself:

1. I’m Buddhist, and meditate for 30 minutes every day. I first became enamored with meditation and Buddhism through my yoga practice, and haven’t stopped practicing since. (It might seem weird that someone who’s into productivity is into Buddhism and meditation, but I think the two can work together in really interesting ways.)

2.  He graduated University with a business degree with specializations in marketing and management.While I’m into some things that seem hippie-dippy on the surface (like meditation), I think my business-y mind helps me cut through all of the bullshit out there so I can focus on the practical side of everything I write about and experiment with.

3. I grew up in Canada, and have lived here all my life. If you notice a lot of politeness in the way I talk, this is why. I currently live in the nation’s capital, Ottawa, and absolutely love it here. If you come to visit, I’ll treat you to poutine and a beaver tail.

4. I have had some cool work experience, even though I’m 25. I was fortunate enough to work a few fun co-op internships throughout University, including one where I independently hired about 200 co-op students for a global telecom firm (my school named me their Co-op Student of the Year for this job). I also worked a few corporate jobs throughout University so I could graduate with as little debt as possible.

5. A few of my favorite things in the world: Green tea, writing, typography, space, technology (I’m a huge nerd), em dashes (they’re so versatile!), and Oxford commas.

Get a copy of his book at http://alifeofproductivity.com/

Some great articles he's written- http://alifeofproductivity.com/best-things-ive-written/
