As we see the light at the end of the tunnel with the COVID-19 pandemic, there’s one thing we can all feel good about: it seems we no longer have to feel guilty about taking care of ourselves while we work. Both employees and employers now expect it. Earlier this year, Deloitte declared the end of “work-life balance.”[1] Salesforce declared the end of the 9-to-5 workday.[2] Microsoft Japan embraced a 4-day work week boasting a 40% productivity increase.[3] According to Deloitte’s Human Capital Trends report, “Well-being was …

Back to the Basics: Why We Should Eat Like Our Ancestors

About 2.5 million years ago, humans were evolving anatomically and physiologically, adapting to climate change, learning to use stone tools, and cooking meat using fire. Our ancestors literally ate to live—they didn’t live to eat. Their diets consisted of fundamental foods they could find nearby—vegetables, fruits, meat (wild game), seafood, and water. For centuries, humans thrived on this type of diet, hunting and gathering the plants, fruits, and small game available. But with the advent of the industrial revolution, diets began to morph into something unrecognizable to our Paleolithic ancestors. We started to eat ultra-processed, low-cost, readily available foods—think cakes, …

5 Ways to Supplement Sunlight Exposure

Sunlight Benefits for Body and Mind Scientific research is shedding new light on the many benefits we derive from being exposed to the sun’s rays; something our primitive ancestors naturally took advantage of. But as the human race has evolved, many of us have gotten further and further away from the sun, quite literally. We live and work inside climate-controlled environments and wear clothing and sunscreen that covers or protects most of the body from the sun’s harshest rays. While that protection is important, so is sun exposure and the many positive benefits it confers on the body and the …
