What I’m reading —

Books, documentaries, or podcast episodes I’m enjoying —
On Tyranny: Twenty Lessons from the Twentieth Century by Timothy Snyder
This short, practical book examines the rise of fascism and communism in the 20th century and what we can learn from them. With the increasingly ridiculed press to election hacking to fear mongering about the “others”, there is no more important time for regular citizens like ourselves to get involved and preserve our democratic rights. If it can happen in the United States, it can happen anywhere else in the world.
A quote that’s inspiring me —
What the caterpillar calls the end, the rest of the world calls a butterfly.
— Lao Tzu
Product I’m loving —
Activated charcoal has been used for thousands of years in ayuverdic medicine. It works by attracting positively charged toxins to help with detoxification of your gut. I take one or two Upgraded Coconut Charcoal from Bulletproof in situations where I know I may be eating some suspect food or when I’m going to be drinking some alcohol. It’s not meant to be taken on a regular basis but when you know you’ll be eating some lower quality food than you’re used to.
As always, please make sure to consult your doctor before you add supplements that you haven’t tried before!
