Sasha Talks Tech
startup stories, trends and digital lifestyle hacks
What do mommy bloggers, remote workers and millennial digital nomads have in common? They operate from the center of a real shift in our culture. You see, when it comes to world exploration, technology has been the conduit that for the first time ever, has allowed people of all backgrounds and levels of education and means to to work remotely and/or travel more. More than ever before children at a young age now realize that there is a future for them in a career they are passionate about and that money isn't everything.
Just as there are some people that would rather daily go into a job they hate because they love their salary, or need their benefits, there are others who get by on less to make the life of their dreams become a reality.
A dreamer, hopeless romantic, goal digger, ambitious, opportunistic..whatever you may call that person in your life, here's a holiday gift guide targeted to them.
"Stay hungry. Stay foolish."
We typically highlight the gadgets and apps that are not so mainstream, but we have to admit we are crazy about the Amazoon Echo. Connect the Echo Dot or other Amazon devices and instantly connect to Alexa to play music, control your smart home, get information, news, weather, and more using your voice. You can also sync Alexa with your calendar, smart bulbs, security system, heating and air.
Meditation for Everyone
Meditation has been extensively validated by leading neuroscientists for improving brain health and being able to literally change the structure of the brain.
Here's how Muse works:
When it comes to meditation there is this concept called the "attentional loop," which trains you (the meditator) to direct your attention to an “anchor” — for instance concentrating on your breath, when you find your mind wandering.
While you are meditating and your mind begins to wander, the Muse will read your brainwaves and gently bring your focus back to your breath. Pretty impressive huh?
