#22: Wim Hof, Mastodon, Brain in a Dish, Worm Saliva, Dull Razors, and more!
By Simply Explained Newsletter • Issue #22 • View online
Hi everyone!
After reading about it (and watching a lot of YouTube videos), I finally gave the Wim Hof Method a try. Over the past two weeks, I’ve done 10 breathing sessions and took 12 cold showers. They’re supposed to reduce stress and inflammation while boosting your immune system. I can’t confirm any of these claims, but I can tell you I feel very energized after doing these exercises (while also being calm and focussed).
I can recommend everyone to try it. The cold showers are very rough in the beginning, but after a week, you’ll almost feel comfortable under the cold water. Now, I even look forward to it!
Anyway, this month’s newsletter is packed with cool things! As always, I’m open to feedback. Hit the reply button and let me know your thoughts.
Take care,
Xavier

Many people are fleeing Twitter and switching to Mastodon. It’s an open-source alternative that uses a federation approach. I made this video about it, and it’s currently being watched 400% more than before Elon bought Twitter. Thanks Elon!
