Could it really be THIS easy to Improve your Health? (3 Applications of the 80/20 Rule)
Often, 80% of consequences come from 20% of causes. In other words, if you fix the most important stuff, you’ve done most of the work. Here is how you can use this rule to improve your health.
Mental Health (3 Top Tools)
Just three tools have helped me stabilize and optimize my mental health: Journaling, meditation, and Stoicism. Journaling helps you reflect on your failures and successes and observe your thoughts. Meditation helps you regain control over your thinking mind. Lastly, Stoicism helps you reduce anxiety and fix your filter on life.
People overcomplicate physical health. Everyone knows you need to sleep enough, exercise, and eat good foods. I won’t give you advice on those things (I’m not a doctor and all the information is available for free on the internet), but just know you’re probably better off fixing those essentials than optimizing with athletic greens.
Reading great books is like downloading a software update for your brain. It’s essential to read but people turn reading into a competition. Instead, you should aim to “Read the best 100 books 100 times.” (Naval) If you are interested in a book that will improve every aspect of your life, I recommend you read “Discourses and Selected Writings from Epictetus” (Penguin version)
That’s all! Thanks for reading:)
