What if 2020 gets worse?

I think many folks are pining for 2018. They’d love to wind back the clock a bit to when everything was ‘normal’. (Read: familiar.) If that’s you, I don’t blame you. I just hope you weren’t the typical Twitter user of the time, blurting…

Willpower ain’t the triumph of reason it pretends to be

Let’s say there’s something you want to do, even though you know you shouldn’t. A classic example: reaching for chocolate. If you’ve ever struggled with temptation and lost, then you know what it’s like: You tell yourself you shouldn’t. Then you tell yourself all…

The “I can’t meditate!” meditation technique

The cognitohazard inside this common hypnosis question

Let me begin by saying that cognitohazards are real. Some of you are already thinking, “LOL, you’ve read too much SCP Foundation”. To which I would say there’s no such thing – that site is awesome. But most of you are wondering what cognitohazards…
