meditation for email overload



Email apnea: Holding one’s breath unconsciously while reading an email. (source)

I first learned this term at last year's San Francisco Yoga Journal Conference during a talk called Digital Distractions and Your Practice. The fact is, many of us hold or shorten our breath when opening our inbox, while responding to emails, or while working on something else and getting a notification that we have new mail. Our inboxes can control not only how productive we are but how we breathe. How weird is that?

listen to this

The third meditation in our 4-part series with Baron Baptiste is Meditation for Email Overload, and was created with your inbox in mind. Take two minutes and listen to this whenever you feel like your inbox is owning you instead of the other way around.

If you missed the first two meditations, you can check them out here:
