Excellent. I’ll have to try and remember this as I always tend to forget about these things.
Feynman Lectures on Physics Vol II has been released. Few months ago I posted here about Vol I and Vol III, and now with Vol II, all the work is done. Enjoy of the best undergraduate physics book of all time for free:

7/11 breathing. A skill to use for anxiety. It’s recommended to do it for 10-15 minutes. Like any other skill it does require a lot of practice. I advice that you practice it when you are feeling calm so you are ready in a time of need. If you lose count, which is easily done, simply start again until you do 15 minutes. It will also help with distraction even if you don’t get it right the first hundred times.
Breathing out longer than you breathe in actually activates your parasympathetic nervous system!
Anxiety is your sympathetic nervous system (“fight or flight”) setting off all the alarms, while breathing like this will set the parasympathetic system (“rest and digest”) into action shutting off the alarms and settling your nerves.
Other things that help: laughing, checking out what’s going on around you (moving head and eyes to orient to your surroundings), getting curious about something.
Take care, be safe.

Here’s my ginger cake recipe, frankensteined together from about three different sources. It’s tasty as hell and keeps really well - it won’t go stale immediately (so you can go through one by yourself) and even improves with freezing. The simple vanilla water icing is delicious and adds a little texture.
1.4 dl dark or cane syrup
2.4 dl sugar (whatever you have, I use a mix of granulated and brown)
2.4 dl milk
2 tsp cinnamon
1.5 tsp ground ginger
1 tsp each of cardamom, cloves, and/or allspice
2 tsp baking powder
4.6 dl plain flour (I mix in some spelt, too)
5 tbsp icing sugar
vanilla, whatever kind you have (extract, paste, beans, etc.)
So I was wondering if anyone else was aware of this but if you hold ”Z” + “C” this comes up so you can literally post something while you’re in the middle of your dash and you won’t have to open a new tab or go back to the top.
