The Internet to the Inner-net by Gopi Kallayil

 innernetFive Ways to Reset Your Connection and Live a Conscious Life

Are you overwhelmed by social media and technology? Are you feeling more and more disconnected from yourself and others as your life spirals into sensory overload? If so, this book is for you. Here is the support you need to tune up–and tune into–your inner technology. From a background in meditation and yoga in India, to a position as Chief Evangelist for Brand Marketing in the “fast-paced, warp-speed, hyperinnovative environment that is Google,” Gopi Kallayil needed to find balance between his outer and inner worlds. In a series of short essays, he shares with readers the principles for living a conscious life. You’ll learn to “log in” through connection and engagement. You’ll discover how to “clear out your in-box” through mindfulness techniques, and “optimize your system” through nutrition, sleep, and a one-minute trick to center your mind and body. “Just goggle it” is Gopi’s way of saying take the leap and trust that what you need will come. And “thank you for subscribing” is his reminder to live with gratitude. He assures the reader that there’s no need to unplug completely from the Internet or move to an ashram to reconnect with the inner you. Rather, he advises: “Take the time to friend yourself, listen to the tweet of your heartbeat, pay attention to the status update from your body, and respond to the urgent chat request from your brain.”
