A New Kind of Snack: Gratitude

As the leaves turn and Thanksgiving nears, it's the perfect season to start a conversation about gratitude.

 There’s no doubt that gratitude has become a very #trendy concept based on the sheer volume of inspirational quotes we see on Instagram…

But is there more to it than just “feel good fluff?” The research says yes.

More Than Just A Feeling  

Gratitude isn't merely a fleeting trend. It's a powerful, science-backed practice that can dramatically transform our mindset, boost our health, and sprinkle our lives with joy.

Regularly practicing gratitude does more than leave you feeling good; it's about actively rewiring our brains to focus on the positive, leading to increased happiness, reduced stress, and a heart more open to joy and generosity.

It even has tangible benefits for our physical health, like boosting our immune system, reducing blood pressure, and improving sleep quality. 

Happiness Life Hack: The Art of 'Gratitude Snacking'  

Often, we save our deepest gratitude for life's big milestones, challenging times, or holidays like Thanksgiving. And while this isn't inherently bad great, you might be missing out. Imagine turning everyday experiences into a treasure trove of joy.

That's the magic of 'gratitude snacking'—savoring those tiny, delightful moments that are easy to overlook yet are brimming with joy.

Practicing gratitude everyday can have transformative results. And it doesn't have to take a ton of energy or effort. After all, life’s a string of once-in-a-lifetime moments, and learning to appreciate the day-to-day can help you find joy in your life. Mini gratitude moments, or “gratitude snacks,” are subtle yet powerful. They're the smaller, everyday instances that bring us joy, peace, or a sense of connection.

Unlike the grand gestures of thankfulness we often focus on, these moments are simple, easy to find, and deeply personal.

How to Snack on Gratitude   

Forget the Big Stuff (For Now): Start by setting aside the “big” things you believe you should be grateful for. Instead, focus on the smaller details of your day, your senses, and your relationships.

 Embrace the Tiny Wonders:
Pay attention to the little things that make you smile or bring a sense of comfort. When you notice them or feel that spark, give yourself an extra moment to lean into that feeling and fully experience the gratitude.

Bite Sized Examples  

  • The first sip of a hot coffee on a cold day

  • Being greeted by a pet when you come home.

  • The feeling of having a clean house.

  • The leaves changing to fall colors.

  • Your favorite song coming on the radio. Laughing with an old friend.

  • The smell of your favorite body wash.

     You get the idea…

Misunderstood Mushrooms 

A mushroom is a mushroom is a mushroom, right? Unfortunately, not always...
 
Let us explain... 

What many don't know, is the fungal organisms that create "mushrooms" are actually made of 3 distinct parts, each with different functions and uses.
 
Mushrooms, commonly misunderstood as simple organisms, are complex and play vital roles in both our ecosystem and as nutritional supplements.

Let's dive into their structure, the significance of each part, and their versatile uses. 

Know Your Fungi Anatomy

 The Fruiting Body: Everyone is familiar with the mushroom's fruiting body – the edible part that comes in various shapes and sizes. It houses the spores, which are crucial for mushroom reproduction.

The Mycelium:
The mycelium acts like a plant's root system, consisting of a network of hyphae. It extends into the growing medium (wood, soil, grains) to absorb nutrients and water, facilitating the mushroom's growth.  

The right conditions prompt mycelium to produce mushrooms, though some mycelium existing for millennia without fruiting.

Nutritional Value & Uses

Mushrooms are an excellent source of nutrients, including proteins, fiber, vitamins, minerals, and special compounds that give them functional healing power, like beta-glucans known for boosting immunity. The fruiting body of the mushroom, containing these nutrients in abundance, is ideal for creating supplements. 

Mycelium: Beyond the Mushroom 

Mycelium: Beyond the Mushroom

Mycelium is not only crucial for the mushroom's life cycle but also offers several environmental benefits and innovative uses –– Just not for supplements.

Mycoremediation: A Tool for Decontamination 

Mycelium is effectively used in mycoremediation to decompose pollutants and absorb oils, helping to clean contaminated water and soil to protect the environment

Sustainable Material Production 

Mycelium can be transformed into various eco-friendly materials, such as biodegradable leather and fabrics. These materials reduce the environmental impact compared to conventional materials by consuming less energy and producing fewer emissions. 

Mycelium as a Packaging Alternative 

Innovative companies are using mycelium-based foams as a sustainable alternative to traditional packaging materials, offering benefits like biodegradability and flame resistance. 

Plant-Based Meat Alternatives

With a growing interest in sustainable diets, mycelium serves as a nutritious, eco-friendly meat substitute. It replicates the texture of animal meat while requiring substantially fewer resources for production.

Choosing the Right Mushroom Products 

For supplements, the mushroom fruiting body remains the preferred source over mycelium due to its higher concentration of active compounds, especially beta-glucans.

The Misleading Nature of Some Supplements

 Mycelium is cheap and easy to grow on a substrate like oats or rice, which is why it is utilized by most commercial mushroom producers and supplement manufacturers, but cannot be separated from the grain in the final product.

In fact, most mycelium-based supplements test to be 40-70% STARCH, and contain little to no actual mushrooms.

The mushroom (fruiting body) is optimal for supplements due to its high concentration of those powerful compounds, containing up to 10 times more beta-glucans than mycelium grown on grain.

By understanding the different parts of mushrooms and their uses, we can appreciate their full potential in ecological restoration, material innovation, nutrition, and health supplementation.

In the tranquil embrace of twilight, a young man finds solace in the comforting hum of the city that lies beyond his window. Seated on a wooden chair, he pours his whirlwind of thoughts and emotions onto the pages of a weathered journal, an oasis of self-reflection amidst the chaos. Earlier that day, a piercing remark from a friend had rekindled the flames of doubt and uncertainty that often haunted his mind.

"Your ADHD isn't a shield, you still need to fulfill your responsibilities. Try harder."

A sting of judgment, a burden he'd carried countless times before, always fueling the lingering self-doubt that threatened to engulf him.

He pondered, 'Why should I conform to the world's expectations instead of carving my own path with the vibrant chaos that resides within me?' The question echoed endlessly, a reverberating sound that found no answer, leaving him in a state of silent contemplation.

As darkness settled, he whispered a newfound truth to himself, "My uniqueness is my strength." A soft murmur, yet it held a profound truth, a revelation waiting to be embraced by the world.

Yet, as he savored the sentiment, a lingering question inked itself in the corners of his consciousness: How does one navigate societal misconceptions while staying true to one's unique identity?   

A Dance Between Chaos and Creativity


If you've ever felt the sting of being labeled as "lazy" or "undisciplined" because of your ADHD, this is your sanctuary, a place where your vibrant, imaginative mind is celebrated, not criticized.


Imagine your mind as a dance of chaos and creativity, a place where ideas whirl and spin in a beautiful, unending ballet. We are not less but more - more spontaneous, more creative, and teeming with potential if we learn to work with our unique minds, not against them.

Different Doesn’t Mean Damaged


That's not to say ADHD isn’t incredibly challenging - there's no denying that individuals with ADHD encounter a series of hurdles in a world that often seems to be organized against them.

But by recognizing these deficits and differences, we can work to uncover the flip side of the ADHD coin, unearthing a treasure trove of “superpowers,” which, if nurtured and practiced, can lead to incredible success and fulfillment:

Creative “Out-of-the-Box” Thinking

People with ADHD often spot connections and patterns that others might overlook. While all this “noise” can feel overwhelming, this unique lens creates an unparalleled reservoir of creativity. By harnessing this power, individuals with ADHD can develop new solutions, narratives, and ideas that are truly groundbreaking. Whether in a corporate boardroom or a basement art studio, the innovative flair of an individual with ADHD can be a game-changer.

Persistence and Resilience

Living with ADHD in a non-ADHD world often fosters resilience. Regularly facing and overcoming challenges, they develop a skin tough enough to weather many storms. This resilience can be a formidable ally, helping them to bounce back from setbacks with renewed vigor and determination, and handle chaotic, stressful situations with more ease and grace.

Ability to Hyperfocus

Contrary to the common misconception that individuals with ADHD cannot focus, many have the ability to hyperfocus on tasks that genuinely interest them. This level of deep concentration can allow for remarkable productivity and precision, turning them into powerhouses in their chosen fields.

Charisma and Heightened Emotional Intelligence 

You'll often find that individuals with ADHD possess an emotional depth that is beyond what you typically find in non-ADHDers. Their heightened emotional processing allows them to connect with others on a profound level. Through mastering the art of channeling their emotions constructively, they can forge connections that are both deep and meaningful, turning them into empathic leaders and compassionate friends. 

There are many more. The symptoms - and superpowers - of ADHD are unique to each individual, but by getting to know yourself and learning to navigate these complex waters, it is possible to break free from the stigma and flourish.
