Center 615’s content theme for January is all about refreshing and renewing our outlooks. It’s obvious knowledge that changing perspectives and routines can increase creativity and original thinking. But what are some techniques that will help with the practice of renewal?

Andy Puddicombe is a former Buddhist monk and the founder of Headspace, a digital meditation platform invented to increase mindfulness in our everyday lives. In this talk, Puddicombe asserts that clearing one’s mind for ten minutes daily will reap many benefits. “Most people assume that meditation is all about stopping thoughts…but it’s actually quite different.” Watch our selection for Tuesday Talk below to learn how to practice increased mindfulness. The practice of turning off all devices and distractions for ten minutes a day seems simple enough. But, can you challenge yourself to these ten minutes a day for the entire month of January?
