OKAY!! More to talk about misinformation & poor media literacy but before that, I'd always Thanks To Readup Team, especially @bill & @jeff for providing this platform. I'd better say SIFT followed by Readup's Reader. I get more investigated articles as content with opinions, stories, claims & suggestions as well.
I've been learning this quality to be implemented in me for being a better internet user. Misinformation rides the greased algorithmic rails of powerful social media platforms and travels at velocities and in volumes that make it nearly impossible to stop. When we scroll down on any social media & unnoticeably spend hours of no use above statement has expressed it in the best way.
The best way to learn about a source of information is to leave it and look elsewhere, a concept called lateral reading I'd not favor this, simple to understand is ''if not now then sometime later definitely'' it doesn't mean look elsewhere.
Wow, kind of article, Icy story of the Iceman will make you freezzy!! How one moment changed his life, he discovered the methods, taught & trained people. Let's understand your body's response to the cold water :0
You are your own doctor. You’ve got your own power.
When practicing this method, we can control his own body temperature, nervous system, and immune response.
“If you trust the messages of nature, nature will trust you as a messenger”
The kind of negative cycles that turn the singular capacity of human beings for introspection into a curse rather than a blessing, with potentially grave consequences both for our mental and physical health
Be careful with the drive to improve for the sake of improvement, the desire for more for no other reason than it’s more. Be careful adopting new dreams and goals that could harm the success and happiness you’ve already built for yourself today.
I 100% Loved reading this article. An author embellished the four stages of life & their purposes. Reading this article would help to realize which stage you're in whether stacked or not. It'll help you to refresh memories of that transition moment from which you changed life's stage, where you felt you're enough mature, where you thought you've gained the process to analyze things, people & situations.
Trauma causes us to step back and re-evaluate our deepest motivations and decisions. It allows us to reflect on whether our strategies to pursue happiness are actually working well or not.
Stage One-You will never be enough for everybody all the time, and therefore you must make decisions for yourself. The constant search for approval and validation. The absence of independent thought and personal values.
Stage Two-You will never be capable of accomplishing everything you can dream and desire. Process of self-discovery. Learning what makes us different from the people and culture around us.
Stage Three-You must realize that time and energy are limited. Building your legacy & maximizing your own potential in this life. Leaving the world a little bit different than the way you found it.
Stage Four-You must realize that change is inevitable. Making sure that legacy lasts beyond one’s death.
People at Stage One will judge others by their ability to achieve social approval. People at Stage Two will judge others by their ability to push their own boundaries and try new things. People at Stage Three will judge others based on their commitments and what they’re able to achieve. People at Stage Four judge others based on what they stand for and what they’ve chosen to live for.
Here's an article that says more about the news than the news itself says ;)
Anyone heard the term global drama previously? it's given to news headlines also freshly my personal favourite the extra dose of negativity very well suites for news. I don't consume news & its consequences are I may know less about surroundings but whereas human nature is what happens in surrounding so if it could be my negative dose I'm happy to be unaware.
People who consume the most news generally have the most skewed perceptions.
From our attitudes to immigrants to the content of our dreams, it can sneak into our subconscious and meddle with our lives in surprising ways.
The news is accidentally warping our perception of reality and not necessarily for the better.
The very first point here is-work is not the centerpiece of your life, is it?
I really don't know!! As I'm exploring many thoughts this caught my attention. Different people various opinions.
Living the hustler life can reinforce myths of meritocracy & encourages people to work for a longer time. Believing their work will eventually be rewarded.
Understanding the essential and nonessential work is very important, investing time for better must be our first principle.
Not necessarily work functions the same for society because it doesn't serve well to workers.
Shane O'Mara advice about walking & how it helps the brain to regain its activity is worth reading if you're fond of WALKING
One of the greatly overlooked superpowers we have is that, when we get up and walk, our senses are sharpened.
You’re walking rhythmically together, and there are all sorts of rhythms happening in the brain as a result of engaging in that kind of activity, and they’re absent when you’re sitting.
Rhythms that would previously be quiet suddenly come to life, and the way our brain interacts with our body changes.”
If you’re feeding your place cells by coming from a single direction, what they know about the environment is that single direction and you want them to have input from all directions, so look around occasionally and your place cells will reset from the whole sensorium around you.
Great life lessons this lady learned from the poker game. I Agreed with her thoughts. Little things affect our life & the way she'd overcome uncertainties just awesome.
Our thinking about luck has real consequences in terms of our emotional well being, our decisions, and the way we implicitly view the world and our role in it.
How we frame something affects not just our thinking but our emotional state. It may seem a small deal, but the words we select – the ones we filter out and the ones we eventually choose to put forward – are a mirror to our thinking.
Poker is a way to conceptualize the mess, clean its parameters just enough to allow you to grapple with uncertainty with some semblance of control. You never know someone else’s mind, just like you can never know any poker hand but your own–but you can do your best with what you have.
Contradiction in the story!!
Usually shows in movies but in this article, it all happened with a boy (spy) who didn't have any identity.
In the end could Johanna also have been a spy? confused me completely, whether this possibility is a must to be noticed?
Overall, a good life story people are being more patriotic these days!!
I agree with whatever is written in the article. The most noticeable fact is prioritizing what's important & what's not can help to reduce the stress to a greater extent.
Case studies also mentioned the same, how much stress you feel is directly correlated to the importance of the activity. What we can do is prioritize the most important thing at the moment. Also quickly assessing situations, classifying them into important and non-important, and responding accordingly result in the same.
