The Mountain Life - October 14, 2020
In this rebroadcast episode of The Mountain Life, Lynn Ware Peek speaks with:
Journalist James Nestor who talks about how there is nothing more essential to our health and well-being than breathing: take air in, let it out, repeat 25,000 times a day. Yet, as a species, humans have lost the ability to breathe correctly, with grave consequences. In his book, BREATH: The New Science of a Lost Art, Nestor travels the world to figure out what went wrong and how to fix it.
Then a conversation with founder of Organize365 Lisa Woodruff. As Lisa points out, Americans are drowning in paper. We keep stacks of it on the kitchen counter, stash it in drawers, and store file cabinets full of documents. (In fact, one file cabinet can hold 18,000 sheets of paper. Yikes.) In her new book, The Paper Solution: What to Shred, What to Save, and How to Stop It from Taking Over Your Life, Woodruff delivers a proven, step-by-step guide to decluttering the paper in our lives and sorting what's left behind into easily accessible, structured, and manageable files.
