Another Sleep Hack
Simply put, when you get more sunlight exposure during the day, and less light exposure at night, you’re on your way to a magic sleep formula that really works. - Sleep Smarter Shawn Stevenson
A very simple hack to dramatically improve the quality of our sleep: get more light during the day and less light at night. That’s it!
Ants
In a colony of ants, there’re no fixed managers. Everyone is working towards a common goal. Watch the short BBC video below to learn what ants can teach us about management.

Silence
The quote below changed my relationship with nature. It’s from the fantastic book the Overstory by Richard Powers.
…where she and her father liked to sit on summer nights and listen to what other people called silence. - The Overstory Richard Powers
After having read half of the book, I started seeing trees and nature with different eyes.
Quote I Love
The desire for more positive experience is itself a negative experience. And, paradoxically, the acceptance of one’s negative experience is itself a positive experience. - The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck Mark Manson
“The desire for more positive experience is a negative experience.” Wow! This quote is deep. It’s now on the list of my most profound quotes.
Have a great day, all
Adam
