I’m so glad you’ve joined me for a truly fascinating conversation with Dr. Amishi Jha. Dr. Jha is a professor of psychology at the University of Miami where she serves as the Director of Contemplative Neuroscience for the Mindfulness Research and Practice Initiative, which she co-founded in 2010. Dr. Jha received her Ph.D. from the University of California–Davis and postdoctoral training at the Brain Imaging and Analysis Center at Duke University.
Dr. Jha’s work has been featured at NATO, the World Economic Forum, and The Pentagon. She has received coverage in The New York Times, NPR, TIME, Forbes, and more.
Her book, PEAK MiND: Find Your Focus, Own Your Attention, Invest 12 Minutes a Day, covers the crisis of attention, how to tap into the brain’s attention system for peak performance, how to combat our addiction to thinking, and how to develop “mental armor” against anxiety, distraction, and bias.
I loved my conversation with Dr. Jha and while there is so much to take away from what she shared, here are some of my favorite highlights:
