No matter what your age, insomnia may be impacting your productivity and mood.
I've probably linked before to this brief article about the value of not thinking. Also, the way she cuts apples is wasteful. You get more apple if you cut it into quarters first and then cut the cores out, like in this video.
Personally I cut the stem skin off with the cores, after quartering. You just tape a HEPA furnace filter to a box fan.
Finally, a inspiring and informative reddit post about guerrilla edible landscaping. Two links about technology. And yet, it's hard to say exactly why. Maybe it's that we're hungry for healthy socializing, and social media is like junk food, offering sugary but unnourishing connections.
It could also be what someone says in the Hacker News thread: Currently, humans risk becoming similar to domesticated animals. We have bred docile cows that produce enormous amounts of milk but are otherwise far inferior to their wild ancestors.
They are less agile, less curious, and less resourceful. We are now creating tame humans who produce enormous amounts of data and function as efficient chips in a huge data-processing mechanism, but they hardly maximize their human potential.
The author focuses on ownership of data, but I'm thinking more about how tech shapes our moment-to-moment lives. Wild animals are practicing deep skills to engage with a living world. A squirrel keeps a watchful eye for hawks while building its nut stash.
Meanwhile, a human spots a red light camera and makes a hard stop before turning right, or wonders if an operating system upgrade will disable file sharing. I've said this before, but the author who best saw this century was not Orwell or Huxley -- it was Kafka, and our nightmarish rules and punishments are coming from our own tools.
Back to psychology, I've been struggling for a few years now with anxiety and free-floating psychic pain.
With physical pain, if the doctor asks where it hurts, you usually know exactly where. The best I can describe this feeling is, it's like I'm surrounded by an aura of thousands of needles pointing inward, and every time I think about doing something out in the world, it's like pushing my soul out onto the needles.
Lately, my experimental strategy has been to isolate that feeling, not think about the things out in the world that cause anxiety, but just amp up the inner pain as high and long as I can.
Of course it feels terrible, but the idea is, eventually I'll get used to it, and that will be the new baseline. This TEDx talk, Depression and spiritual awakeningseems to describe something similar that happens in the brain. She doesn't explain it well and I disagree with her about the point of having kids but the idea is that depression can be processed in a way that thickens the brain like a growing tree.
You aren't at the mercy of your emotions -- your brain creates them. This one is really good at explaining the science.
Emotions are not hard-wired in the brain; the brain does not have "emotion circuits". What really happens is, the body starts with a very simple feeling, something that could be interpreted all kinds of ways, and then the brain extrapolates, or embellishes, that body-feeling into a complex emotion, into predictions, and into actions.
All of these brain behaviors are learned from our culture and our family, and usually become so habitual that it doesn't occur to us that we can behave any differently. Depressed people are often told to "just cheer up", which implies two ideas: It's probably a harder thing than most people have ever done, but the video hints at how it could be broken into tiny steps.
Barrett gives this example: Your heart is pounding before a test, and you could interpret that heart-pounding as crippling panic. Or you could interpret it as your body gearing up to go into battle! So this is what I've been practicing when I feel an unpleasant emotion: I haven't found a better mental direction yet, but I've already been able to channel it into an urge for physical exercise.
