A quick and dirty weekend reading list from around the web, guaranteed to make you a better human being.*
A Healthier Person: Eat delicious treats, but make them yourself with whole food ingredients.
A Smarter Person: Peruse these maps to get a better understanding of the history of immigration in the United States.
A More Empathetic Person: Consider the effect of the anti-vaccine movement on people with autism.
A Happier Person: Know that there is an elderly man in Australia knitting sweaters for penguins.
A More Productive Person: Take your lunch breaks!
A Kinder Person: Don't forget to show your friends you love them.
*I have no science to back up this claim. In truth, I suspect that becoming a better human being requires significant personal work away from your computer screen. Also, it's worth contemplating whether you're wonderful just the way you are.
p.s. Do you need this reminder to slow things down as much as I do?
