Nature Provides the Ultimate Happiness Hack

Please enjoy a guest post from Mallory from Nootropedia!

Western medicine has advanced by leaps and bounds over the past few decades. At the start of the 20th century, the life expectancy was less than half of what it is today. Much of this is due to great strides in western medicine. There is a downside to western medicine as well. When so many aspects of our health have been enhanced, it’s easy to think every “problem” needs a medicinal solution. Given the strength of synthetic drugs and the pharmaceutical industry, this can lead to some sticky situations.

This namely leads to a high rate of prescription drug usage across the western world and in America particularly. Even though millions of people are taking drugs to decrease the symptoms of depression and anxiety, this may not be the best route or methodology. Nature provides a wide variety of compounds that can more reliably and more sustainably increase mood. Not only does this yield to a greater satisfaction and quality of life, but with increased mood comes better cognitive function and mental performance.

Happy National Take a Hike Day!

Happy National Hiking Day! If you’ve been hanging around Hungry & Fit long enough, you know that we love the outdoors and we love to hike. Of course, I miss living near Runyon Canyon where Noke and I could walk 15 minutes to the closest trail and be on our way. Lately, we’ve been frequenting another trail on the weekend. On Sundays, we like to go to Will Rogers State Park.
