    Reading with Ari: Scarcity Brain by Michael Easter

    Reading with Ari: Scarcity Brain by Michael Easter

    In our latest podcast episode, my guest Ari and I discuss Michael Easter's book "Scarcity Brain." We explore how our survival instincts and scarcity cues can keep us trapped in a cycle of insatiability, and the far-reaching implications of scarcity and numbers in our daily decisions. We also tackle the controversial topic of cancel culture and the alarming rise of overthinking and offer practical guidance to foster contentment through gratitude, meditation, and wise decision-making. Tune in now for a deep understanding of how scarcity influences our lives and how we can combat its effects.

    Reading With Ari, Book Reviews, "The Comfort Crisis" by Michael Easter

    Reading With Ari, Book Reviews, "The Comfort Crisis" by Michael Easter

    What if the very comforts we relish in the modern world were actually hampering our happiness and wellness? That's the riveting question we explore with Michael Easter's, book "The Comfort Crisis," in our latest episode. We engage in an eye-opening discussion about the impact of our smartphones, temperature-controlled environments, and other conveniences on our health, as well as the life-altering power of stepping outside our comfort zones. Michael's personal accounts from his 33-day expedition in Alaska offer invaluable insights into our quest for comfort.

    The episode takes an intriguing turn as we wade into the oft-debated waters of meat consumption. From the ethics of hunting to the distinctive flavor of pasture-raised meat, we dissect the subject from all angles, while emphasizing the need for mindful consumption. We also spotlight the merits of "voting with your money," advocating for consumers to make choices that align with their values and principles. The conversation then veers towards Masogi, a term coined by Dr. Marcus Elliot, signifying pushing the boundaries of human potential โ€“ a must-listen for anyone eager to challenge themselves and expand their horizons.

    Rounding off the episode, we delve into a deeper understanding of solitude and its dichotomous nature โ€“ often perceived as a sign of weakness and a gateway to self-discovery. Our chat highlights the importance of getting comfortable with being alone, fostering self-awareness, and developing authenticity in relationships. We conclude by sharing stories about Brazil and Canada's starkly different camping experiences. This episode is a treasure trove of insights for fitness enthusiasts, adventurers, and anyone keen on challenging societal norms and pushing personal boundaries. Tune in for an enlightening journey that might just motivate you to step outside your comfort zone.
