Bust the “Three Hour Work Day” Myth

Find yourself working overtime and wondering why you’re still not finished your project? After all, you’ve got a whole eight hours if you’re an average office worker in America.

You may not have accomplished everything you set out to in those eight hours because, according to a 2018 survey, almost nobody is working the full eight.

In fact, it’s much more likely that less than three hours of your day are dedicated to actual, nose-to-the-grindstone, productive work. Two hours and fifty-three minutes, to be exact, is the average amount of time spent on work during the day.

Binge-Eating Linked to Very Specific Gut Bacteria

There’s nothing wrong with eating a second helping…

Unless, of course, you’re already full. And you’re not really sure why you’re eating the second helping. And when you’ve finished, you feel bloated and immobile and sleepy. And you fall asleep shortly after finishing, forcing your body to digest your meal in your sleep, which forces your digestive system to work twice as hard and impedes the quality of sleep you’re getting.

In the ever-evolving field of gut health research, scientists are asking the question: Is overeating less of a personal choice and more of a chemical response in the body?

In other words, can eating for pleasure, instead of eating to stave hunger, actually be traced to bacteria in the gut’s microbiome?

Building Bridges Between Sister Skills

There is no such thing as useless knowledge.

Take a second to internalize that…

Nothing you know how to do, no fact you’re able to remember long past its alleged usefulness, no unmarketable skill or interest, is devoid of value.

Every proficiency you’ve ever earned – from PC Tetris excellence to being able to bake perfect chocolate chip cookies – all form and affect the consciousness you inhabit and think of as “yourself.”
