You can’t force the simple life

Do you dream of packing it all in and moving to the country? Maybe somewhere warm, close to the beach? Somewhere without the internet, maybe even mobile reception? And somewhere without germ-laden crowds? I get it. Your enthusiasm for traffic, noise, drab offices, poor…

The ingredients label for placebos

A few days ago, I brought up placebos and how well they can work. Which is frustrating for medical research but awesome for you. A simple sugar pill could be what you need. I mentioned they have similar effectiveness to antidepressants – although there…

What wonder is made of

What makes wine more interesting than lemonade? What makes a forest nicer to look at than a brick wall? I could write essays about this. About the cultural associations wine has to celebrations, good times, relaxing in front of the fire… and the pleasant…
