Sleep Like a Superstar! Part 2

Why are so many people having difficulties sleeping soundly? It’s because there’s not enough contrast between their “day” and “night.”

In pursuit of better sleep for myself, I have increased the amount of light during the day and made it darker for the night. This has helped me to sleep better; it can work for you too.

Buy a Better Brain?

Have you ever wanted to upgrade your brain? Are you at a place where you really need to perform at work or at home? I have found what works for me and it will likely work for you.

Several months ago, I really needed to focus on a couple of projects at work. Around that time, I read Does A “God Pill” Exist? and decided to give Qualia a try. Immediately my ability to focus, my creativity, and my production went up. I was happier. I don’t pretend to understand all the science behind it, I just know it works. I’ve been taking supplements for over 30 years and this has more impact than any other.

To try it, use Qualia10 for 10% discount code at the Neurohacker Collective website.

Sleep Like a Superstar! Part 1

Have you ever wondered if you’d get a good night’s sleep again? Have you tried “can’t fail” strategies and supplements with no success? If so, you are not alone!

I did, and I saw no progress until I started keeping score. I’m 56 years old, and these days, I get better sleep than I did when I was in my 30s. It’s not easy, but I’m going to share with you a proven method that TRULY works.

3 Funny Word Feature Names

 

Sometimes the way people refer to features in Microsoft Word just makes me laugh. Here are three of my favorites. Enjoy!

  1. Referring to the Quick Access Toolbar: “You mean the QAT bar” (rhymes with squat).
  2. Talking about the Format Painter: “Love that sweeper”.
  3. Discussing the Hanging Indent and Left Indent markers on the Ruler: “Oh, I call those Monopoly Houses”.

1 Game you might NOT become obsessed with

I don’t know about you but I’ve been there: putting more time and energy into a game than I want to. Hats off to game developers, there are some brilliant games out there. For now, I just don’t want to give that much of myself to them.

Why do I get obsessed? There are many reasons but I’ll mention two. One, I just have to beat “the next level”. And then to make matters worse they come out with a new “planet”. Two, I don’t want to let my friends down. If you play a game that has social pressure, that is a double whammy.

What game works for me? Chess. Some of you are cheering and some of you are rolling your eyes. What I’ve found is that I can play it as much as a want or not at all and enjoy it when I come back to it. My favorite way to play is an iOS app called Chess Pro.

What do I like about Chess Pro? The way the tutor works and the great design. The tutor presents you with four suggestions for each move and by following along you just naturally get better. Oh course, you can toggle the tutor on or off at any point. The design is simple and beautiful. The app is a great value at $9.99.
