Hi friends, here is your weekly dose of “Simply Good Life", a newsletter that tries to make your day a little bit better and help you to grow personally and professionally. Enjoy!

Corona Thought Experiment
I simply love these small though experiments. This one is from Yancey Strickler:
Imagine two years from now you’re leaving your house and you’re remembering the quarantine. What 3 things are you glad that you did during that time?
For me, the three things I’m glad that I did during the quarantine are: buying an infrared sauna, meditating a lot more than before corona, and the introduction of my early morning runs.
What is it for you?
52 Things
In the list below, the most surprising thing for me was the one about male trees:
Most cities plant only male trees because it’s expensive to clear up the fruit that falls from female trees. Male trees release pollen, and that’s one of the reasons your hay fever is getting worse. [Jessica Price]
What are your favorites there?
OURA Ring - My Favorite Gadget
Sorry, last week I sent you the wrong link to the device I’m using: the Oura Ring which for me is the most accurate sleep and activity tracker I’ve tested. It measures a ton of physiological signals of your body, and it also guides you to make your own optimal daily choices. See below some of my values measured by Oura.
Dresden Destroyed
The Dresden Destroyed article begins with an excerpt from Kurt Vonnegut’s Slaughterhouse-Five. Every now and then I need to see and read things like these to value my life more.
Rosewater was twice as smart as Billy, but he and Billy were dealing with similar crises in similar ways. They had both found life meaningless, partly because of what they had seen in war. Rosewater, for instance, had shot a fourteen-year-old fireman, mistaking for a German soldier. So it goes. And Billy had seen the greatest massacre in European history, which was the fire-bombing of Dresden. So it goes.
— Kurt Vonnegut Jr., Slaughterhouse-Five
Quote I Love
Often a very old man has no other proof of his long life than his age.’ — Seneca

I set big goals for every decade of my life. This decade of my life is about introspection. I uncover more and more about my past, about my default behaviors, about my values with every single day.
