To improve energy, longevity, and life in general.

All these three from Andrew Huberman have a definite impact on me and I try to do them as often as possible (=daily).

NSDR for me means = 20-minute “nap” where I don’t have to sleep — just relax mind and body — usually in the afternoon.

In addition to these I really get benefits from:

  1. Avoid sugar and processed foods as much as possible
  2. Limit alcohol as much as possible
  3. No screentime 1 hour before bed (improve sleep)
  4. High-intensity physical training
  5. Quality social interaction

Thanks for reading.

The principal enemy of mindfulness — or of any meditative practice — is our deeply conditioned habit of being distracted by thoughts. The problem is not thoughts themselves but the state of thinking without knowing that we are thinking. In fact, thoughts of all kinds can be perfectly good objects of mindfulness. In the early stages of one’s practice, however, the arising of thought will be more or less synonymous with distraction — that is, with a failure to meditate. Most people who believe they are meditating are merely thinking with their eyes closed. By practicing mindfulness, however, one can awaken from the dream of discursive thought and begin to see each arising image, idea, or bit of language vanish without a trace. What remains is consciousness itself, with its attendant sights, sounds, sensations, and thoughts appearing and changing in every moment.

René Magritte’s The Human Condition
  1. A fun visual analogy of consciousness. You are the painting, representing the outer world but inside.
  2. Consciousness is the contents of your mind — whatever you are focusing on at that moment. The contents can change and consciousness will simply reflect those changes.
