How Nature Can Make You Kinder, Happier, and More Creative

We live with ubiquitous technology designed to constantly pull for our attention. But many scientists believe our brains were not made for this kind of information bombardment, and that it can lead to mental fatigue, overwhelm, and burnout, requiring “attention restoration” to get back to a normal, healthy state. Nature can restore depleted attention circuits, which can then help us be more open to creativity and problem-solving. #nature #natureheals

Science Shows What You Think Will Make You Happy Probably Won’t

Science says there’s a good chance you don’t know what really makes you happy. When estimating our happiness, we humans tend to engage in something called “impact bias” where we overestimate the actual effect that different outcomes will have on our lives. #happiness

When if they think they’d be happier winning the lottery or becoming paraplegic, most people quite understandably respond that they’d be happier with all that money and no handicap.

Researchers Develop Faster Test For Cannabis Potency and Quality

“There is a growing demand on testing labs from licensed cannabis growers across the US and Canada who are under pressure to perform potency testing on ever-increasing quantities of product,” says Matthew Noestheden, Ph.D. chemistry student under Prof. Wesley Zandberg at UBC’s Okanagan campus. “Traditional tests can take upwards of 20 minutes to perform, where we can do it in under seven. It will save a great deal of time and money for producers with enormous greenhouses full of thousands of samples requiring testing.” Noestheden says that not only can he test the substance in record time, but he can also test for a virtually limitless number of phytocannabinoid variants. #cannabis
