Author: by Daniel T. DeBaun
An Invisible Danger on the RiseYou eat organic and non-GMO food. You only drink purified water. You take care of yourself and your family’s health. But could there be a silent, invisible danger causing potential harm to you and your loved ones?There could.
And it’s called electromagnetic frequency (EMF) radiation and it’s one of fastest growing health issues facing our society. EMF radiation produced by modern technology such as 5G, cell phones, tablets, laptops, Wi-Fi, and smart meters is an emerging health threat, and we are all guinea pigs in a giant experiment with many unknown consequences.
But Aren’t These Technologies Regulated and Safe? Surely the government and other regulatory agencies make sure these technologies are completely safe before they are approved for wide-spread use, right?Think again. Ninety-five percent of American adults use cell phones regularly.
Most households have Wi-Fi. And even schools are increasingly becoming dependent on wireless devices. And yet none of these technologies have been proven safe to humans for long-term exposure. In fact, science confirms that the EMF emitted from common electronic devices can cause definite biological changes in the body, and mounting research has already shown it can lead to a long list of health concerns some of which can be pretty serious.

10. Rest: Why You Get More Done When You Work Less
Author: by Alex Soojung-Kim Pang
Sit back and relax and learn about why overworking and under resting can be harmful to yourself and your career.”Rest is such a valuable book. If work is our national religion, Pang is the philosopher reintegrating our bifurcated selves.”-Arianna Huffington, New York Times Book ReviewOverwork is the new normal.
Rest is something to do when the important things are done-but they are never done. Looking at different forms of rest, from sleep to vacation, Silicon Valley futurist and business consultant Alex Soojung-Kim Pang dispels the myth that the harder we work the better the outcome.
He combines rigorous scientific research with a rich array of examples of writers, painters, and thinkers-from Darwin to Stephen King-to challenge our tendency to see work and relaxation as antithetical. “Deliberate rest,” as Pang calls it, is the true key to productivity, and will give us more energy, sharper ideas, and a better life.
Rest offers a roadmap to rediscovering the importance of rest in our lives, and a convincing argument that we need to relax more if we actually want to get more done.

Author: by Gary John Bishop
Thorsons (May 31, 2019)
From the author of the New York Times and international bestseller Unfu*k Yourself Gary John Bishop presents a no-holds-barred guide to breaking through our cycles of self-sabotage to get what we want out of life. In Unfu*k Yourself, Gary John Bishop told us it was time to stop making excuses to recognize and take responsibility for the negative self-talk holding us back.
In Stop Doing That Sh*t, he builds on that message, teaching us how to stop self sabotaging behavior. Bishop explains how our destructive cycles come down to the way that were wired. He then identifies different types of people and the ways we fu*k ourselves over: We cant save money.
We land in the same type of toxic relationship. Were stuck in a rut at work. Analysing why we act the way we do, including what our common grenades are that blow up our lives, Bishop then shows how we can interrupt the cycle and stop self-sabotaging our lives.
Written in the same in your face style as Unfu*k Yourself, Stop Doing that Sh*t will help us get in touch with our psychological machinery so we learn to interrupt negative thoughts and behaviour before they start, allowing us to give our attention to something else, and start to find success in the areas we thought we never could.
