Let me guess.
You might be thinking:
"Self-esteem, isn't that something you're born with?"
Yes and no.
You probably know of some people who have it all: they give a mind-blowing presentation on the fly, derive pleasure from the fact that difficult questions come up afterwards, and then ask a co-worker out for dinner in front of the whole group.
I'm exaggerating a bit.
But still: you know people who have very high self-esteem right? And you know some people with low(er) self-esteem as well...
In fact, having very low self-esteem can be devastating for your life.
Think about all the opportunities you've missed because you hesitated, think about all the times you've sabotages yourself because you though you were "not good enough", and think about how often you're plagued about thinking back of these moments.
I'm not preaching gloom and doom though.
My message is positive.
Even though having...
"Don't put too much salt on those eggs honey"
"Grandpa's heart is damaged because he used salt every day. Eating salt will also destroy your kidneys".
O.K., I'll stop mommy...
Sorry for the theatrics.
Fortunately, that conversation never happened.
My point is, however, that the conversation might have happened. Lots of people assume they should not add to their food. You might be too...
You must be thinking:
"Tough choice. I either choose to eat bland food that tastes like crap, or I'm eating mouth-watering salted food that destroys my health."
Not so quick...
Almost everyone is aware that there's a debate around salt. That debate focuses on whether you should add salt to your food and how much.
The salt debate has become more "violent" in the last decade.
So what's my take?
I'll tell you right now:
In this blog post I'll give you...
I know what you're probably thinking: mindfulness meditation?
"Mindfulness is not for me. I cannot silence my mind".
Or you're assuming that mindfulness "is something spiritual people do"
Don't get me wrong.
Both can be the case. You can perhaps silence your mind with mindfulness, and you can see the practice spiritually.
But you don't have to.
Mindfulness is like learning to ride your bike.
You might fail at first - and that's O.K.
And you'll learn eventually, which is the entire point.
Learning to ride your bike is strange and scary at first...
Until you see how biking works, and you're all pumped up.
Everybody can do it...
Mindfulness is the same: weird for people who don't know the practice, but magical once you know where it gets you...
Mindfulness can have great benefits for:
Zinc is another mineral, just like magnesium. I've written an extensive blog post on magnesium before.
"Why should I worry about that complicated stuff, such as a mineral as zinc?"
I'll tell you why:
Fixing that mistake deficiency can have huge benefits for your health (I'll tell you soon.)
Having mineral deficiencies is like having a problem with the software in your computer.
If you don't know how to fix that software problem, you'll spend hours upon hours fixing stuff.
And yet, an expert can simply tell give you a quick fix, even over the phone.
I'm like that for zinc - a "technician" who can give you easy-to-follow steps. Why? Well, treating (possible) mineral problems is the same as a software problem.
You just need to know the right steps.
So I'll tell you ...
You know noise (pollution) right?
If not, you would probably not be reading here...
Screaming neighbors. Fighting cats. Traffic. Overflying airplanes.
Or maybe there's just a sound that's really irritating for you. Maybe you don't like listening to Britney Spears - even at a low volume. Or perhaps you hate listening to Mozart or the Beatles.
In fact, everyone hates certain sounds.
I'll tell all about you my "favorite" noise sources later on in this blog post.
And I know what's happening with most noise pollution problems. The more you focus on the noise, the more irritating it gets.
I completely understand.
So what's the solution?
The first step in understanding any problem is being aware that there's something wrong in the first place.
With noise, most people assume that it's simply an annoying side issue--not a problem. And yet, noise is a societal problem. An enormous...
Some things sound to good to be true.
Red light therapy might be one of them.
Let me explain:
Some things are too good to be true, and yet, they're still real:
I've been told that getting your first child is too good to be true (I'm no expert there)
Finding the love of your life is the same. Graduating? Finding your dream job? Finally retiring with enough money?
All those instances are too good to be true and they still happen.
Then there's the change in people lives when they find out the effects (sun)light have on their health.
So let me tell you about red light therapy:
Just as the sun at sunset you see in the picture above, the following red light therapy LED panels also emit both red and infrared...
You probably know stress...
Maybe you're still thinking about:
We all know stress in one form or another.
You do too.
There's lots of advice on stress out there.
You might have tried to follow some of that advice before:
And so forth...
And you know what?
That's just bad advice.
You cannot just stop being stressed.
If I just tell you to study harder you'll probably keep making the same mistakes over and over again.
Stress is the same. If I tell you to relax, you might succeed for 20...
Do you want to know something amazing?
What if I told you there's a simple mineral that can:
And what if you could gain these benefits for pennies a day? That proposal is a no-brainer right?
The mineral I'm talking about is magnesium.
Even though magnesium is inexpensive, 60% of people are magnesium deficient in modern society. The problem doesn't even stop there: many more people - an estimated 90% - don't have optimal magnesium levels.
That means almost everyone can benefit from consuming more magnesium.
But why did that problem arise in the first place?
There are several reasons why people in modern societies are deficient in magnesium:
Cannabis for health?
"You must be kidding me?"
"Is that like claiming a bottle of wine per day is good for your heart?"
No, not at all.
I'm dead serious...
In fact, cannabis-based products such as cannabidiol (CBD) oil have become really popular for health improvement purposes since a few years.
Cannabinoids are compounds that stem from cannabis plants - such as hemp or marijuana. More than 100 different cannabinoids have currently been identified. Cannabinoids are used to make cannabis-based products, such as CBD oil for consumption, or CBD wax, which can be vaped.
Not all cannabinoids in existence have not been thoroughly studied yet.
The goal of this blog post is to explain to you which effects of cannabinoids have currently been scientifically proven to exist. In other words, the blog post places less emphasis on personal experiences that people have.
You might be asking: "how do...
Many people are striving towards accumulating ever more possessions - hoping that material wealth will make them happy. These people also think that success brings happiness.
Health plays a major role in realizing that happiness. Improving your health will thus make you both happier and more successful.
This blog post claims that a signalling substance in your brain - called "dopamine" - plays an essential causal role in health, success, social relationships, and happiness.
Dopamine allows you to "have it all".
If you have high dopamine levels in your body, you'll experience improved critical thinking, more well-being, better health, an improved ability to generate income, and superior social functioning.
