How meditating ten minutes per day can improve your design workflow by Florian Holstein

Our industries are moving at a faster pace every year and yet we need to deliver world-class results. We look into the science why we’re actually more creative when we meditate on a regular basis and how to balance creativity and focus with our fast paced environments. No candles, no bullshit.

Presented at the UI/UX Designers Meetup in Berlin May 11th, 2016. Organized by Wiredcraft hosted at Zalando.
