Doing nothing is more than just lazing around. Artist and author Jenny Odell joins us to explain what she means by doing nothing — taking time out of one’s day to engage in an activity without considering whether it’s productive — and why it can be so difficult these days to do it. She’ll also explain how doing nothing can actually be a form of resistance to a world where our value is over determined by our ‘data productivity.’

If you think of practicing mindfulness and/or meditation as something only Zen Buddhists do you're wrong. Although these practices do have ancient roots, modern research is showing they have multiple benefits, including stress reduction, lowering the heart rate, improving memory, reducing emotional responses and, some say, making practitioners more effective at work.
