Jake Yanoviak is hunting for houses. On a weekday afternoon in North Philadelphia, the 23-year-old painter cruises along on his bike, its black paint obscured under stickers from breweries and rock bands.

Introverts! Stay the same and don’t strive to become an extrovert. Embrace your uniqueness and be yourself.

The principal difference between the two is that, extroverts are more…

How to live to 100: Secrets of the world’s healthiest village revealed

How to live to 100: Secrets of the world’s healthiest village revealed | Thinking, Learning, and Laughing | Scoop.it
THEY say a little of what you fancy does you good. But it seems the old adage may be wrong when it comes to living a long and healthy life – unless it’s in strict moderation.
Dr. Helen Teague's insight:
After studying the citizens of the Italian village of  Pioppi, Dr Malhotra found it was their lifestyle that gave them many years of extra life, many over 100 years old. Diet was a key factor as was lack of stress, seven hours of sleep a night, and eating sugar just once a week. Dr. Malhotra has concluded that “simple lifestyle changes such as consuming less sugar were more powerful than any medication doctors could prescribe”.

Starting Your Day on the Internet Is Damaging Your Brain by Srinivas Rao

Starting Your Day on the Internet Is Damaging Your Brain by Srinivas Rao | Thinking, Learning, and Laughing | Scoop.it

I’ve said before the first 3 hours of your day can dictate how your life turns out. And this often begins with the very first thing that you decide to put in your brain. You can either start you day with junk food for the brain (the internet, distracting apps, etc) or you can start the day with healthy food for the brain (reading, meditation, journaling, exercising, etc). When you start the day with junk food for the brain, you put yourself at a self imposed handicap that inhibits your ability to get into flow and prevents you from doing deep work. When you start the day with health food for your brain, the exact opposite happens.

"Anytime I start my day with junk food for the brain, the quality of the day goes down. I’m less happy, focused, and productive. I spend a ton of time on the internet and don’t get any real work done. But if I start my day with health food for the brain, I find that my mood is better, I’m happier, more focused and productive."
