Celeste Headlee is an award-winning journalist and the author of DO NOTHING. In this conversation with her book editor Michele Eniclerico, Celeste gives practical advice on how we can manage our work-life balances while working from home, and how to keep social media from overtaking our lives. She also discusses her book DO NOTHING, which illuminates a new path ahead, seeking to institute a global shift in our thinking so we can stop sabotaging our well-being, put work aside, and start living instead of doing.
DO NOTHING by Celeste Headlee Pulling together threads from history, neuroscience, social science, and even paleontology, Headlee examines long-held assumptions about time use, idleness, hard work, and even our ultimate goals. Her research reveals that the habits we cling to are doing us harm; they developed recently in human history, which means they are habits that can, and must, be broken. It’s time to reverse the trend that’s making us all sadder, sicker, and less productive, and return to a way of life that allows us to thrive.
