"In an age of constant movement, nothing is so urgent as sitting still." That is Pico Iyer's conclusion in his new book "The Art of Stillness." The longtime travel writer, who has trekked to countries as far-ranging as North Korea and Ethiopia, is now making the case for mindfulness and rest. In an age of constant connectedness, Iyer writes that staying put (and turning off your phone) is an exciting prospect, and may be more necessary than ever.
