John Mayer kinda talks about it a lil' bit here:

Maybe with this music hack and some Malcolm Gladwell magic.

kantos  ·  1 day ago  ·  link  ·    ·  parent  ·  post: What was the best album of 2019

Billie Eilish’s debut album was streamed the most on Spotify for 2019.

Billboard agrees. And so does itunes with a quick query.

Chat about the artist on hubski a la goobster.

The bass does it for me as well... the album is a good listen.

Bonus:

Also in pop, Thank U, Next from Ariana Grande delivers. But not talking about pop... if you’re a fan of metal, Verklighten by Soilwork has a nice variety of rhythms.

Other than that, I’ll be tuning in here for other listens.

Not a bug, but an extra line could be added to the markdown tips explaining that/how tweets embed now.

Big fan of the markdown tooltip being a dropdown menu.

I hope you find more tracks, that's a nice 'n easy listen. Artists generally record 3 while there, but some have recorded there more than once over the span of a few years.

Paste Studio brings in a lot of small-time headliners, if that makes sense. Worth the look to see if a favorite of yours has played a few songs there.

But seriously, this is a neat update. Appreciate it.

That said, I'm good to motion mindfulness on its own is dumb.

That's the model, for sure. My understanding of mindfulness was it's use as a subset of CBT.

- Zoom out and take inventory (Step 1 and 2: Mindfulness)

- Take a new path (Step 3 thru 5: the rest of CBT)

Jared's really nailed down head movement to make reading from a prompt less obvious.

Concerning the video content, social amnesia makes the practice sound isolating... but it's a nice extension of focusing on individual wellness. I agree with the point of it's not serving a holistic purpose, if it's only use is to #LetThatShitGo. My bone to pick with that philosophy (which I think is the point of the video) is once you're there, the next question better be: Now that I'm 'centered,' what am I going to do about this stressor?

My introduction to the practice was with the intent of applying 'mindfulness' in the moment of a high stress situation to better navigate to your desired outcome.

Ya know, a given circumstance catches you off guard, so you:

   1. Take a breath to relax

2. Evaluate how you got there

3. Evaluate where you want to go

4. Take action

5. Profit

Practicing mindfulness with a therapist through induced hypnosis (AKA a great nap), has only been refreshing in my experience. I don't think it really had many benefits further than reinforcing the pattern given above.

Now, Heartfullness was a stint I used to relax most recently, which was effective for an in the moment headspace grab. It absolutely gave tools to not implode in finals week. Yet, my last time there I 'woke' much earlier than the rest. Being in a dimmed room with people slumped over reminded me more of getting high, than 'attaining a higher level of consciousness'.

Guess it comes down to how you want to reach that place of 'inner peace'.

Don't really have a way to tie this video in as I'm typing, but I love this scene from Breaking Bad.

    (cruel) college nickname was literally 'Robot'

Hits me on a spiritual level.

I get the impression it replaced the verb “think” in most expressions halfway through the past decade.

I thought it made me sound more empathetic and less robotic when I consciously switched it up. At this point, I’m think I’m with you, though.
