42 | Summer Is Here
This week, I released a video -> This Is YERBA MATE !? Unbelievable PRODUCTIVITY Hack. The title is self-explanatory but I thought it would be interesting to share my perspective on this popular beverage from South America. 🧉
I always find interesting that when I drink mate, I'm actually taking advantage of 3 xanthine alkaloids (stimulants) such as caffeine, theophylline (found in green tea) and theobromine (found in cocoa and chocolate). Even though Yerba Mate is not the only “tea” to have those 3 xanthines, the ratios seem to be optimal for the way I function. 🧪
It's quite amusing that in many parts of Europe this is known as a weight-loss supplement. I'm not sure when and how this happened given the limited research in place but I find it hilarious. 🏃♂️
Summer is here in the UK and Europe. We've recently had some nice few days. As somebody once said, everything good, everything magical, happens between the months of June and August. Summer is always the best of what might be. We all accept that it's time to slow down, enjoy the nice weather, the great location and breathe. ☀️
But I can't stop thinking of content for the channel as there are so many things going on that I want to document and share on the internet. Every month I have a content crisis where I'm not sure if I should do more vlogs, self-growth or travel videos… or none. May was all about Travel videos. June about Self-Growth topics + Vlogs. July is going to be Travel + Vlogs. 🎞️
Before moving to Spain after summer, we plan to spend time in Lithuania. I'll take all my gear, including the drone to film this fascinating country. I don't want to say too much for now, so just stay tuned as I have some cinematic content coming up at some point next month. 🚀
Have a great week!
