The Wild Newsletter – Comfort Is Killer
I’ve been thinking about a lot of things lately. I’ve even had a few epiphanies as of late. I might as well share them with you.
1. Most things in life are distractions.
2. The essential things, the things of value, the things I enjoy, can be counted on one hand.
3. I am now focused on getting rid of as much from number one as I can so I can more focus on number two.
4. Most people need to focus more on how they spend their time rather than focusing on how they spend—or make—their money.
5. Money doesn’t buy happiness, but it does remove a lot of stress, and it is the most critical tool the average person can acquire to protect their family against the unknown. *Although it can also add a lot of stress if misused.
6. The new American Dream should be to own next to nothing so one can have the flexibility to travel and live anywhere
7. The future of our economy will be taken over by those that are 1) good with people and 2) can become good at multiple things.
8. I’m getting rid of my phone number. If I need to talk on the phone, I’ll schedule it and use one of the many free calling apps.
9. I’m reducing the time in my inbox (and so is Wild Foods). Unfortunately, the majority of emails we get are trying to sell us something or are quickly answered on our website.
10. We are all animals rummaging around on a giant floating rock that is spinning at 1000 MPH while moving at 67,000 MPH as it orbits the massive ball of fire we call the Sun. Oh yeah, and that giant ball of fire that gives us life will eventually explode and take us with it (if we don’t blow ourselves up before then).
*Perspective is helpful for us to realize that 99.99% of our problems are either easily solvable or not worth stressing about. I hope you have a great week. Remember, life is short. How you spend your days is how you spend your life, so spend wisely. Yours in Health,

The Ancestral Mind Podcast #9
What is Sex 3.0? Well, it’s a book by JJ Roberts that explains why we are the way we are about monogamy but are constantly attracted to the opposite sex.
It shows that we’re mismatched to the current “normal” of one partner for life and why the natural way is entirely different. There was too much to cover in one episode, so we decided to call it quits for the moment!

This Day In History: March 10, 1876 — “Mr. Watson – come here – I want to see you.”This was the first ever conversation via telephone!
Mr. Alexander Graham Bell built and tested the first working phone 143 years ago. That first call was to his assistant, Thomas Watson.
The smartphones we now carry around have certainly come a long way since then. Ironically, even the inventor realized that uninterrupted time to focus does matter. Mr. Bell refused to have the telephone in his study, considering the invention a distraction from his work as a scientist.
Health Tip Of The Week: Lid down before you flush!
While we probably all have mastered basic potty training skills, it is vital to close that toilet lid before a flush. Why does this matter so much? It’s called a “toilet plume.” That’s a dispersal of microscopic particles due to flushing a toilet.
“So what?” you say….”They’re microscopic.”They may be tiny droplets, but they’re a big deal. That bacteria can spray several feet into the air (and still be there an hour and a half later). This means countertops, toothbrushes, door handles, etc., can be coated in this disgusting aerosol effect. It’s pretty simple – just put the lid down.
“The truth is unless you let go unless you forgive yourself, unless you forgive the situation unless you realize that the situation is over, you cannot move forward.”― Steve Maraboli
