We all know that we need to drink a lot of water. But have you ever wondered why? This episode begins with exactly how drinking lots of water helps and how drinking too little hurts. https://www.eatingwell.com/article/17435/why-drink-water-how-water-and-health-are-connected/ What determines the content of your dreams? Is it true that people come up with great solutions or ideas in their dreams? What does science tell us about the importance of dreams and is there is a way to actually put them to work for you? Listen as I speak with Deirdre Barrett, a dream researcher at Harvard Medical School, past president of the International Association for the Study of Dreams and frequent media guest on the topic of dreaming. She is author of the book The Committee of Sleep: How Artists, Scientists, and Athletes Use Their Dreams for Creative Problem Solving-And How You Can Too (https://amzn.to/3Tzr0bv) What you put in your stomach affects your brain. Think about it – when you have a headache, you take a pill (that goes to your stomach) and it makes your head feel better. The same thing appears to be true with the food you eat. What you eat can affect how you think, how you feel and even your level anxiety. That’s the message from Dr. Uma Naidoo, board-certified Harvard nutritional psychiatrist, professional chef, and nutritional biologist. She serves on the faculty at Harvard Medical School, the Harvard Department of Nutrition, and is author of the book Calm Your Mind with Food (https://amzn.to/3vcQx0V) From the time humans first invented and used tools, humans have wanted and needed stuff. Tools were our first “stuff” – and owning the best tools gave you status and prestige. Now we have so much stuff and we simply can’t live without it. Our stuff is part of our identity. How we got here is a fascinating story which you are about to hear from Chip Colwell. Chip is an archaeologist, former museum curator, and author and editor of twelve books. His latest book is So Much Stuff: How Humans Discovered Tools, Invented Meaning, and Made More of Everything (https://amzn.to/43euNyr) Watching movies can be good for you. Whether in a theater or at home, comedies, thrillers, romance or family films can all have a positive effect. Listen as I reveal just how good a movie can be. https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2004/07/040722085905.htm PLEASE SUPPORT OUR SPONSORS!
