What happens when we just never stop?

In MITWorld Videos "The Ceaseless Society: What Happens to Our Mind Body and Spirit When we Just Never Stop?", speakers Jon Kabat-Zinn: Founding Director, Stress Reduction Clinic, University of Massachusetts Medical Center and Tenzin LS Priyadarshi: Buddhist Chaplain and Visiting Scholar, MIT discuss the effects of busy life patterns on human mind and body and how to cope with it. Also explains why it is so important to truly live in the present and 'mindful' living and effects of meditation.



“we can get entrained into the rhythms of society as if we’re guinea pigs in an uncontrolled experiment run wild. No one’s minding the store.” The demands of daily life and an increasingly digital age leave us living for the future, and “if the present moment is only a clever way to get someplace else, then we’re never where we actually are.” So we’re perpetually dissatisfied ....

When the brain gets going, it can be very creative, says Kabat-Zinn, and the body suffers"
