    "You can drink two bottles of this stuff" #328

    "You can drink two bottles of this stuff" #328

    Today we devote a whole section to that most noble of causes: hacking hangovers and staying energized even when drinking alcohol (responsibly, of course).
    Why the title of the podcast? Listen on to find out.
    I am unfortunately Mr. Sensitive these days when it comes to booze. Maybe it’s an age thing. Or maybe I always was a lightweight. But just like many people, I still do want the occasional drink. You may do as well.
    It turns out there are some unusual, radical hacks you can employ to drink cleaner and feel better the next day. Sure, alcohol can be toxic. But so can oxygen, water and even carrots in the wrong dosage. (Some years ago, an unfortunate death did actually happen due to the overconsumption of carrots.) All this tells us that dosage is everything. When you get your alcohol intake right, a review of the literature shows it can boost your overall happiness, euphoria, and pleasant, carefree feelings (1). Sounds good, right?
    Of course, the best way for us all to avoid that hangover feeling is to not drink in the first place. If you’ve got some meh going on and are also drinking more than a couple of drinks a night or a couple of times a week, you need to cut it down. This is the first lifestyle change you’re going to want to make. Get specialist help if you need. Lecture over.

    CGMs and Meat Fruit (feat. Anttoni Aniebonam) #327

    CGMs and Meat Fruit (feat. Anttoni Aniebonam) #327

    Coming up - meat fruit! Heston Blumenthal and biohacking! CGMs and how they can improve your health!
    One of the most welcome health tech innovations of the last few years has been continuous glucose monitors (CGMs) which can help people with diabetes manage their blood sugar levels. And it turns out that the information from these nifty little monitors can help all of us start to learn the individual foods that affect us. They’re easy to use. You buy one from a company like Freestyle Libre, and attach the monitor to your arm for two weeks. It doesn’t hurt at all. Then you analyze your results with an app like Veri.
    Anttoni Aniebonam is the founder and CEO of Veri, and he joins me on today's podcast.

    Saved from email and whatsapp hell (feat. Cal Newport) #325

    Saved from email and whatsapp hell (feat. Cal Newport) #325

    This podcast will change the way you use your phone, your desktop and your whatsapps!
    Email is making people miserable; it has a mind of its own and it is stopping people getting on with their working lives. Cal Newport is here to save us from that. 

    Cal is a celebrated author and I have three of his books here at home. 
    The average person checks their emails 75 times per day, for heavy users it can be 400+ times per day. The average worker sends 126 emails per day - that is one every 4 minutes - and the constant interruptions are affecting the way our ancient Paleothlithic brains work. 3 working hours per day are being lost to email - valuable hours that could be spent achieving a better work/life balance.
    And here are two of my pet annoyances
    Emails with one words: “Thoughts?” (takes a time to reply, takes no time for the sender to send) Whatsapps that say  “How are you” (again, takes time to reply, takes no time for the sender to send)  We talk about these in the podcast too.

Qi gong

I’ve been an avid follower of Katie and Arron since lockdown began, I do Katie’s Qi gong every day, despite working throughout lockdown as a key worker on 12 hour shifts , but always manage her recordings at some point. I try and do Arron sessions on a Tuesday & Thursday, he’s an amazing teacher and once my shifts allow I plan to do the 12 rivers .. the podcast was excellent, gave any newbie a really good insight into the benefits of Qi gong 😊😊
