Hi all! It’s Friday. Hence, here is your weekly dose of hmx-weekly, a list of what I’m enjoying, pondering, or working on. Enjoy.
THE DEADLIEST SIN
“In the bottle before you is a pill, a marvel of modern medicine that will regulate gene transcription throughout your body, helping prevent heart disease, stroke, diabetes, obesity, and 12 kinds of cancer — plus gallstones and diverticulitis. Expect the pill to improve your strength and balance as well as your blood lipid profile. Your bones will become stronger. You’ll grow new capillaries in your heart, your skeletal muscles, and your brain, improving blood flow and the delivery of oxygen and nutrients. Your attention span will increase. If you have arthritis, your symptoms will improve. The pill will help you regulate your appetite and you’ll probably find you prefer healthier foods. You’ll feel better, younger even, and you will test younger according to a variety of physiologic measures. Your blood volume will increase, and you’ll burn fats better. Even your immune system will be stimulated. There is just one catch.
There’s no such pill. The prescription is exercise.”
The Deadliest Sin by Jonathan Shaw.
“Surprisingly often, people mistakenly assume that others recognize and appreciate their experience.” Look who’s talking… having dealt with a lot of patients myself, I’ve known how frustrating it can be if people don’t stick to recommendations. This might help. And surely so in other contexts.
ARTICLES I ENJOYED
- Broccoli, blood sugar, and diabetes
- Microdosing LSD to enhance work performance and wellbeing?
- Keep your goals to yourself
Minimalism (netflix link) is a documentation exploring a group of people questioning materialism. Core tenet is to only buy, and have, and do what contributes to your happiness. In this sense I looked around our appartment and got an urge to declutter. Loved the simplicity of the living spaces showed. Also the documentation features Sam Harris, Dan Harris, and Leo Babauta from Zenhabits.com. Jackpot.
