Ramesh Mourthy worked for more than 15 years in software industry in the US and the UK, until he realized he was not happy with what he was doing and his life was feeling "too mechanical". He left his job of an identity architect in a big gaming company to start his own sustainable farming business in India. In the new episode of Consciously Digital podcast, Anastasia talks to Ramesh about slowing down in the increasingly fast world, his search for balance and why technology makes us rush.

Last week I spoke at the Future Health Summit in Dublin about flourishing in an age of digital distraction, the impact of tech on our minds and behavior, and what it means for the health industry. What should health tech industry keep in mind to make sure it is really making a change to people's lives? I hope you enjoy this recording kindly taken by Lawrence Ampofo from Digital Mindfulness.
We are working on a new video course on digital marketing in an age of digital distraction and wanted to share with you the first episode. This course is about how to do email marketing in an age of digital distraction, when your customers are overwhelmed by hundreds of messages coming their way. What might have worked 5 years ago doesn’t work today, but a lot of email marketers still do marketing in the old way, and repeat the old mistakes (or even what used not to be a mistake).
It is not simply a promo for the course, but also has some useful exercises, that you can start using today to improve your email marketing.
