Mindlessness and Mindfulness with Dr. Ellen Langer

Very much enjoyed her super-pragmatic attitude around increasing mindfulness just by really engaging creatively with what we're doing. She gets a tad more "out there" at the end in a fun way - mind over matter stuff - but well worth exploring and being open minded about.

Dr. Langer was one of the authors of the famous study from the 1970's in which they gave nursing home residents a house plant to take care of. Those who took care of their own plant (among other differences) lived longer than those who were told the staff would take care of it.
