DID YOU KNOW that a study by The Happiness Researcher Institute just may have found a way to boos happiness quickly? Researchers there found that keeping off Facebook for one week can significantly improve one's overall life satisfaction. 94% of study subjects admitted to using Facebook at least once per day and 78% used it for at least 30 minutes a day. One group was banned from logging onto Facebook for a week, while a control group was told to continue using the site as they normally would. People who continued to use Facebook were 55% more likely to be stressed. Those who stopped their social media habits experienced less concentration difficulties, felt more satisfied in their (real life) social lives, and were 18% more likely to feel present in the moment. More people who didn't use Facebook also reported feeling happier, enthusiastic, and decisive than those in the control group. Meanwhile, more people who stuck with Facebook reported feeling lonely, sad, depressed, angry, and worried than those who stopped using the site. The researchers also concluded that people who use Facebook regularly are 39% more likely to feel less happy. Instead of focusing on what we actually need, we have an unfortunate tendency to focus on what other people have. And yes, there really is a Happiness Researcher Institute in Denmark! YUMMI BEARS OUT, PURE NUTRIENTS GUMMY IN! Over the last few years, we have been frustrated with the quality control and availability of Hero Yummi Bears. We have had a difficult time finding a replacement we could endorse, until now. Pure Encaps just introduced PureNutrients Gummy. Not only do we love the ingredients, but it tastes great and is gluten- and- corn-free! VIRUS PREVENTION Continue with extra immune support until at least summer of 2021. SARS-CoV-2 knows no boundaries and does not discriminate. Besides, SARS-CoV-2 is not the only virus we fight. There is influenza (flu), norovirus (stomach flu), adenovirus (common cold), and four other coronaviruses (common cold), among others. Prevent and Fight Coronavirus 2.0 is our must-read protocol. For detailed advice about conventional, as well as integrative treatments, read Steve Minsky's COVID-19 Condition Monograph.
Have a happy, healthy day! Steve and Bonnie
PLANT BASED PROTEIN MYTHS
Steve and Bonnie: Plant based foods...vegetables, fruits, nuts, seeds, and grain-like foods (especially quinoa and buckwheat) are fabulous for our health. The one important macro-nutrient that we can't get enough of from these foods, however, is viable protein.
