The Power of the Unconscious Mind

In partnership with our friends at The Outnet
The Power of the Unconscious Mind
We tend to obsess over how much and how well we focus, but psychiatrist Srini Pillay makes the case that the time we spend unfocused is more important. Pillay is a brain researcher, an assistant professor at Harvard, and the author of Tinker, Dabble, Doodle, Try: Unlock the Power of the Unfocused Mind. He helps people understand how to manage risk, harness creativity, and access the unconscious. He talks to us about brain function (the majority is outside of conscious awareness), strategic ways to unfocus (most of us daydream ineffectively), and the key to possibility thinking (which allows for self-esteem optimization). Pillay thinks that we should all become scientists in our relationships and lives: Intuition, he says, is a hypothesis that needs to explored rather than rejected.

Gwyneth x Misty Copeland: On Being the First
Ballet star and history-maker Misty Copeland sits down with GP to talk about what it’s like being the first—something Copeland is intimately familiar with.

(She’s also the New York Times–bestselling author of books including Life in Motion, Ballerina Body, and her new guided journal for kids, Your Life in Motion.) She shares some of her incredible life story with GP, along with the tools she’s leaned on to heal from the past and find her place moving forward.
