According to psychologist Daniel Kahneman, we have two brain systems: System 1 is our automatic, reactive brain. System 2 is our metacognitive brain that we use to reason, analyze and manage our decision. The trick is to move the bedtime decision from System 1 to System 2.

  • Consider how you might be sabotaging your sleep.
  • Then, set a realistic and sensible bedtime.
  • Half an hour prior, tell yourself that you are choosing to go to bed at this time. It may be a way to quiet your inner squalling child.

Burnout as an occupational phenomenon

To suffer from burnout is to be used up, like a spent battery that can't be recharged. Defining symptoms are exhaustion, cynicism, and loss of productivity.

The World Health Organization recognized burnout as an occupational phenomenon in 2019 but it is not listed as a medical condition. Multiple studies suggest burnout symptoms are identical to depression.

Our Experience Of Time During Dreams

Dreams occur in the Rapid Eye Movement (REM) stage of sleep. We tend to remember the dreams that are seen just prior to waking up, but often the experience of time during our dream and awake stages is skewed.
Swedish and German scientists studied Lucid Dreamers(People who are aware while dreaming and are able to control the dream) and found out that there is a negligible time difference in non-physical tasks done in the dream stage vs in reality.

Physical tasks, like running, took longer in dreams than in reality.

Building A Protein

If we equate DNA as the master blueprint, we could then say that a protein is the house. There are many involved in this process such as the messenger RNA which is the working copy of the DNA, the cytoplasm, amino acids, ribosomes, and the transfer RNA molecules.

Basically speaking, proteins are made inside cells. The instructions of how to make proteins are held inside the DNA molecules and the two major stages in making a protein are called transcription and translation.

Cooking is soothing and empowering as you can be present in the moment. There is routine and a quietness about reading a recipe, and putting together a dish while you use your senses, smelling the aromas coming together.

With baking, you can do something that makes you have more control. You can read something, and in 30 minutes, you'll end up with a product that feels wonderfully satisfying.

Why cooking and baking fill a void
