Availability: Ready to download

Part pop-science, part self-help, Your Day. Your Way. is a friendly, funny, fact-based guide to changing how you make decisions in order to live a better -- maybe even your best -- life. We make, and worry about, a thousand big and little decisions during our waking hours. And for most of us, these decisions are made (after a lot of hemming and hawing), based on concerns o Part pop-science, part self-help, Your Day. Your Way. is a friendly, funny, fact-based guide to changing how you make decisions in order to live a better -- maybe even your best -- life. We make, and worry about, a thousand big and little decisions during our waking hours. And for most of us, these decisions are made (after a lot of hemming and hawing), based on concerns or beliefs about our world that . . . well . . . simply aren't true. These misperceptions impact day-to-day decisions and stress us out unnecessarily -- and we all have enough stress as it is. Tim Caulfield seeks to provide the antidote to this analysis paralysis, teaching readers -- through sound science and silly stories -- that reevaluating their decision-making processes can lead to lives that are both more fulfilling and more exciting. Your Day. Your Way. unfolds like a typical day -- from the first buzz of the alarm clock all the way to bedtime. As the clock moves forward, Caulfield tackles topics associated with that particular time of day and addresses them through science-informed responses about health, offering readers a way to cut through the noise and have healthier and happier lives in the age of anxiety. Caulfield highlights what science says we should be worried about and how we can de-stress and live a healthy lifestyle. Rather than burying you in the facts, or listing out a bunch of specific things you should or should not be doing, Caulfield uses wit, humor, and a wide variety of examples to encourage readers to reevaluate how they make all of those decisions -- so that they can live in a way that truly works for them.

    Light read. Small touches of humor, informative at times, the author has really one thing to say: think about every step of your daily routine. Is it science based? Not to be anti science, but I think he finds out that science can only tell you so much. Yes to studies about nutrition, yes to studies about health issues, but other more social subjects are a little outside of the scientific method. Does eating as a family help bonding the family? What do you want science to say? How do you perform Light read. Small touches of humor, informative at times, the author has really one thing to say: think about every step of your daily routine.

Yes to studies about nutrition, yes to studies about health issues, but other more social subjects are a little outside of the scientific method. Does eating as a family help bonding the family? What do you want science to say? How do you perform an A/B test on that question? I agree with the message about reflecting every step you make. I disagree with the obsession with science. I dislike people arguing on nonscientific issues 'but where are the studies?'. Are there peer-reviewed studies about the benefits of meditation? Who knows. I would argue that the mere asking the question is the wrong approach. Sometimes you do you because it feels ok.

    I will try not to be too critical (as I was marking the pages when I read), but this book was very underwhelming. The idea of a walk through of "daily decisions", with time stamps and little chapter headings caught my attention, but fell short in its attempt to display much knowledge on the subjects at all. Most of the sections ended with an 'unsure maybe' that was clear from the beginning and dull. I just couldn't get over the obvious nature of some of the statements and the randomness that pre I will try not to be too critical (as I was marking the pages when I read), but this book was very underwhelming.

Most of the sections ended with an 'unsure maybe' that was clear from the beginning and dull. I just couldn't get over the obvious nature of some of the statements and the randomness that preluded the conclusions. There was an entire section on "wine" that covered how the price/taste of wine is a fluke happening - something that was so irrelevant and minor. Overall, there were some bright spots, but mostly a stretch of pages that restated society's uncertain view on just about everything. Not to be harsh, just being thorough. Bleh.

    Un libro que se lee rápido y fácil. Fue escrito para que no sea denso y la estructura alrededor de un día de la vida me gustó. Tienen algunas estadísticas muy interesantes y otros temas que uno ya conocía. Pero lo recomiendo como una lectura casual. Sin embargo, lo triste de estos libros es que los que deberían leerlo no lo leerán nunca o simplemente descartaran toda la información porque algún Gurú de youtube les dijo lo contrario. Pero bueno, así es la vida.

    Well organized and evidence based. Doesn’t fall into a lot of the mistakes of other self-help books like conditioning on the dependent variable.
