I’m a numbers guy. I notice a lot of relations between numbers, in addition to finding them in analysis and such. However, I sometimes miss some for years that when I realize it, I am just stunned as to how I could have missed it. The most shocking example still is the one that has to do with my age when running my first marathon, and which I didn’t realize for like a decade. However, this one about my spending and taxes in recent years comes close.
Intermittent fasting is the practice of regularly consuming all your daily food and drink, except for water (drink as needed), within an 8 hour period such that on a 24 hour cycle, you fast for 16 hours. Regularly consuming all of your daily food and drink within less than 8 hours could certainly count, though likely unhealthy if much less time, though I don’t know what qualifies for “much” because I’m not a nutritionist. On the other hand, consuming all of your daily food and drink in a stretch much longer than 8 hours starts becoming questionable if you were intermittently fasting to a sufficient degree to get the health benefits from it. Those would include not eating as much, weight loss, insulin control, better sleep from not eating close to bed time to force the body to digest while sleeping, and so on.
For all the news about support for dealing with COVID-19 and the associated pandemic happening, there’s been remarkably little about mental health support. That’s shocking considering:
- The world is a lot more stressful and uncertain place now than it was just two months ago; and
- There wasn’t nearly enough mental health services a few months ago.
People facing all kinds of new unknowns and uncertainties, with serious harm potentially at stake. People locked away for a few weeks at a time if they might have COVID-19, or just locked away in areas of extreme lock down. You don’t think people are going to need some mental health services in all this???
I hope someone is seriously planning for LOTS of additional mental health support to help people around the world get through all of this!
If you view it and have any questions or feedback, please leave them there so the discussions can be in one place as much as possible.
The combined year results, with much more granular geographic results, will be explained soon, but are already posted here if you want to look ahead of time. Thank you.
See how you stack up, or put in average values from different jurisdictions, like country, state, country bloc, etc. and see how they compare to Canadians!
