HAVE YOU FELT TIRED AF LATELY?!
I'm going to be willing to be you've answered yes...and also...because you and I are cut from the same high-achiever cloth, I've gotta ask...
👉🏻Have you been fighting the tiredness?!
👉🏻Have you been telling yourself: "WTH?! I have no excuse for this! If anything...I've had LESS going on!!"?
Well, there's a REALLY legitimate reason why you're tired that my girl @elenajoyexperience shared with me this weekend! And it involves getting a little science-y...
Firstly, we've all heard of the "fight-or-flight" response. That's triggered by our sympathetic nervous system and it's triggered in response to danger and stress.
But, there's a 3rd part of that. It's actually the fight-flight-freeze response. An alternative response to situations like this is to "freeze" or "play dead". It's kind of like a deer caught in the headlights.
For many of us, what has this pandemic and the response to it triggered in us? FEAR, right?! What is that if not a stress response?
But we can't physically fight this.
We can't physically flee this.
All we can do is freeze.
Every single one of us is basically in some weird holding pattern, trying our damndest to live when so much has been upended.
So be kind to yourself - body, mind, and spirit. If you need to rest, rest. If you need to relax, relax. We're all processing a lot, even if we seem to be handling things quite well.
It's a physiological and psychological coping mechanism. And we just need to give it the energy it requires!
How are you going to let yourself rest today?!

💧 Distilled Water 💧
Distilled water is water that has been boiled into vapor and condensed back into liquid in a separate container. Impurities in the original water that do not boil below or near the boiling point of water remain in the original container.
I was pretty stoked that I had everything I needed to try this. The steam from the boiling water collects on the underside of the metal lid. The ice causes it to cool rapidly and drip into the glass bowl. Super easy EXCEPT I made a critical error. The lid did not fit tightly, so most of the steam escaped rather than being captured in the bowl. Since this is due to the height of the bowl and can't be helped, I'll just have to put aluminum foil around the gap next time.
#HistorichemPill : Noce Moscata e Aglio. Corsi e ricorsi storici
Vi starete chiedendo cosa accomuna noce moscata e aglio. Apparentemente nulla, se non il fatto che vengono entrambi usati in cucina da molti secoli. In realtà c’è di più e la storia ci viene in aiuto.
La noce moscata è una spezia ottenuta macinando il nocciolo del frutto dell’albero sempreverde Myristica Fragrans. La molecola di isoeugenolo è responsabile dell’aroma caratteristico della noce moscata, ma anche della fama che accompagnò questo prodotto per molti secoli. La noce moscata è stata considerata per secoli protezione contro la peste, la Morte Nera, che flagellò l’Europa fra il Trecento e il Settecento. Si tratta di una superstizione medioevale? Sicuramente l’alto costo della noce moscata lo rendeva un prodotto accessibile a chi viveva in condizioni più agiate e salubri, con conseguente minore probabilità di contrarre la peste. È, però, estremamente possibile che l’isoeugenolo contenuto nella noce moscata- insieme ad altre molecole come la miristicina e la elemicina- agisse come insetticida tenendo così lontani pulci e ratti.
L’aglio è una pianta bulbosa, il cui odore caratteristico è imputabile ai numerosi composti organici solforati in esso contenuti, come l'alliina, l'allicina ed il disolfuro di diallile. Nell’immaginario popolare l’aglio è un ottimo rimedio per allontanare i vampiri e oggi per prevenire l’infezione da Covid-19. Purtroppo, però, si tratta di una bufala. È sicuramente vero che l’aglio presenta proprietà antimicrobiche, tuttavia non esistono evidenze scientifiche che abbia la capacità di un’azione preventiva nei confronti del virus.

We are The Active EMF Protection of the Future...! There is no escaping EMF, we can do what we can in our own homes to get protected, yet it's difficult to stop EMF runoffs from other networks close to you and when you're out and about in a city.⠀
Live work and play in a #Bluzone ~ here are some of our products: ⠀
💠 Blushield Tesla Gold Portable ~ stay protected when out and about with a 3-metre radius⠀
💠 Blushield Tesla Gold Auto ~ stay safe while driving with a 15-metre radius. Using a mobile phone in a car can amplify the EMF by up to 3 times more than being in free space. ⠀
💠Blushield Tesla Gold Plug-In ~ The plug-in model is for your home or office and has a 15m radius. This is for homes with low EMF exposure⠀
💠Blushield Tesla Gold Cube ~ this has a whopping 90-metre radius in all directions and is recommended for those who have high exposure to EMF especially smart metres, high rise apartments and more!⠀
💠Blushield Tesla Gold Ultra ~ this has a whopping 90-metre radius in all directions and is twice the strength of the cube. These are recommended for those who are in ultra-high EMF zones and is perfect for factories, hospitals & large companies⠀

As an everyday American with a twitter account that doesn’t have a blue check next to their handle, and someone happens to be a molecular biologist who understands the contagion and life/death issues, all I can say is this: I will remember in November & I will vote accordingly!https://twitter.com/joycewhitevance/status/1244348661624188931 …

I’m sitting here watching @apollo11movie (super great doc, go watch it) and I’m watching all these awesome people send men to the moon and I have to say...go ahead and smack yourself in the face for me if you think we didn’t go to the moon. #sciencerules pic.twitter.com/onyS50RIqm
Biggest differences between the first Europeans and the Neanderthals. 👏 Link in bio to listen. 🙌⠀
In today's interesting episode me and the great storyteller, professor emeritus Brian Fagan, do a deep dive into our history. We talked about the first modern Europeans, the Cro-Magnon. Who they were, how they lived, how they differed from the Neanderthals and us, their culture, what they ate and much more. A great conversation to better understand our European ancestors and thereby ourselves. If you want to learn more, check out his book on the topic named “Cro-Magnon How the Ice Age Gave Birth to the First Modern Humans.⠀
Brian Fagan is a professor emeritus of Anthropology who have written several archaeology books. He attendeted Pembroke College, Cambridge, where he studied archaeology and anthropology (BA 1959, MA 1962, PhD 1965).⠀
Hope you enjoy it.

Did someone say it’s #Caturday? 🐈 Meet the sand cat (Felis margarita)! It can be found in the Sahara desert, parts of the Middle East, and central Asia. This wild cat is built for life in the desert: thick soles insulate its feet, allowing it to walk on hot sand during the day and cold sand at night! What’s more? The feline is able to move without sinking into the sand and leaves little trace of footprints. The small-but-mighty-critter is known for being a “fearless snake hunter” and will go after venomous vipers for a meal.
