Linda Esposito is a psychotherapist (and all-round awesome person) who’s passionate about helping stressed out, sleep deprived adults, angry teens and their frustrated parents.
When I sat down with her recently we wound up talking about happiness, social media, the power of disconnecting and the importance of routine.
We also chat about the work she does with mindfulness, how we can learn to better manage our stress and why she’s determined to reduce the 46+ million Xanax prescriptions written each year in the US.
It’s really interesting to get an insight into the clinical research into living a slower, simpler, more mindful life because so often it feels like the slow movement has been turned into a modern-day trend. Talking about the real world benefits of it with someone who sees the result daily was fascinating.
