A short monthly newsletter packed with awesome new discoveries and personal recommendations! #Books #Podcasts #Tech #Humour #Psychology #BestOfTheWeb

Happy August and welcome to the 11th issue of ‘How Curious!’ ✌️
I’ve been on a short break from London city living. Most time has been spent back in Dublin, at music festivals in Barcelona and on a family trip to Westport. ☘️🎶
It’s been nice reactivating some healthy habits and routines. This issue covers some apps and books I’ve used to help keep me on track! 🏃📚

Quotes I'm pondering
If it came from a plant, eat it. If it was made in a plant, don’t. - Michael Pollan
We don’t see things as they are, we see them as we are. - Anaïs Nin
If one only wished to be happy, this could be easily accomplished; but we wish to be happier than other people, and this is always difficult, for we believe others to be happier than they are. - Montesquieu

Two Book Recommendations
Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants. We’ve all grown up surrounded with simple tips for healthy eating, but common sense isn’t common practice. Sometimes we need multiple nudges for these tips to sink in! Michael Pollen’s ‘Food Rules: An Eater’s Manual’ is a concise handbook outlining 64 digestible principles for healthy eating. A fantastic short read filled with practical wisdom to improve your diet. (8/10)
Better to pay the grocer than the doctor!
Better to pay the grocer than the doctor!
When questioned about global trends―what percentage of the world’s population live in poverty; why the world’s population is increasing; how many girls finish school―we systematically guess incorrectly. Despite the message often pedalled by the mainstream media, the world in 2018 is healthier, wealthier and safer than ever before. This book highlights the monumental improvements in recent decades and why we are so oblivious to the progress.
“One of the most important books I’ve ever read―an indispensable guide to thinking clearly about the world.” – Bill Gates
