As compiled, deciphered, edited and sometimes read by Brock Armstrong, the Podcast Sidekick.
How To Read At Night Without Disrupting Sleep
Tony says: He is looking for the best way to read in bed without disturbing deep sleep. He has 3 scenarios (all of which include blue blocking glasses): 1. Reading on his phone using a low light app on top of an iris app. 2. Using his paperlight Kindle with a bit of light. 3. Reading a hardcover book with a scientific light in the room (like a sleepy baby).
How To Keep Your Appetite Satiated During A Fast
Rob says: What are some tricks or mental hacks you use to keep yourself from breaking a 18-24 hour fast and giving in and some munching on something?
How To Increase Oxytocin
Stephanie says: She is interested in using Oxytocin as a therapeutic remedy. How can she purchase some or how can she increase it naturally?
How To Naturally Clean Swimming Pools
Jodi says: What do you think of the Clear Choice Natural Swimming Pool Treatment? It uses enzymes instead of chemicals. Is it a legitimate product and is it a better choice than chlorine?
