The quality of information we intake and the meaningful conversations we have directly equate to how productive and meaningful we consider our lives to be. When we add digital devices into the mix we add distractions that keep us from focusing on the task at hand. The distractions plus the frustration of being unable to focus our attention can lead to stress which wreaks havoc on our bodies.
To find out how we can take a much-needed digital detox and focus to make the most out of every moment, Harvesting Happiness Podcast Host Lisa Cypers Kamen speaks with two authors about their work in the realm of evolved brain function, emotions, and productivity.
Dr. Lisa Feldman Barrett is a neuroscientist, psychologist, and author who dispels some popular brain myths and discusses the content of her book, Seven and A Half Lessons About the Brain.
Chris Bailey has studied stimulation statistics and shares what lies at the core of what it means to be productive and how intention and focus can increase productivity.
Lisa Feldman Barrett, Ph.D., has received numerous scientific awards, including a Guggenheim Fellowship in neuroscience and an NIH Director’s Pioneer Award. She is a University Distinguished Professor at Northeastern University, with appointments at Harvard Medical School and Massachusetts General Hospital. She is the author of the bestselling book, How Emotions are Made (2017).

Chris Bailey first became interested in productivity in high school when he read David Allen’s 2001 book Getting Things Done. A graduate of Carleton University Sprott School of Business, Chris took a 1 year sabbatical following graduation during which he conducted productivity experiments on himself. These and other observations from his experiments are documented in the 2016 bestseller, The Productivity Project. His new book, Hyperfocus: How to Be More Productive in a World of Distraction was released in August 2018. Chris lives in Ontario, Canada.
