0009 - Cognitive load | Ego depletion | Cognitive biases

The Unlearning Playground

Feb 25 2022 • 12 mins

Another episode in our series of episodes about human cognitive biases.

In this one, I talk about Cognitive load, which is an overarching phenomenon that affects our moment-to-moment state of being and thus, affects our ability to make decisions, to understand and process information - in short, it affects how we think. And hence, being aware of it is important.

I also briefly touch upon the need for meditation, and why it is something that everyone should incorporate in their everyday lives.

This episode is as everyday-life as it gets when it comes to pragmatic philosophy, wisdom and understanding. Tune right in. I'll see you in the playground.
