Easily Allowing and Forbidding Distractions on OS X macOS

Facebook and Instagram are better than television and like any good thing it is nice to have a break. Real televisions have an on/off switch but computers don’t really. Technical folks: here is one way to make it easy to give your OS X macOS box an on/off switch for your social sites:

#!/usr/bin/env bash
# -*- mode: sh; -*-

if [ $# -eq 0 ]; then
    sudo cp /etc/hosts.distractions /etc/hosts
    printf "...forbidding distractions.\n"
    sudo cp /etc/hosts.org /etc/hosts
    printf "...allowing distractions.\n"

The Anatomy of Trust by Brene Brown


  • Brene Brown on Super Soul Sunday
  • Reliability
    • be aware of your limitations, don’t over promise.
  • Accountability
  • Vault
    • holding the confidences of others
  • Integrity
    • choosing courage over comfort, choosing what’s right over what’s fast fun or easy, practicing your values, not just professing them.
  • Non-judgment
    • when we assign value positively to when we or others need help
  • Generosity
    • take whatever words I say in the most positive kind accepting manner. Learn to make generous positive assumptions about what others say or believe.
  • Common Enemy to Intimacy
    • sharing negative gossip about others.
  • Self-trust
    • Can you count on yourself?
  • “Follow your curiosity
    • This is much easier than following your passion.
  • Curiosity is always gentle and available.“ – Elizabeth Gilbert

Yoga Pants That Men Will Actually Wear

Men like wearing blue jeans or dress slacks. I do. Do they have them for Hatha Yoga? Probably not. I couldn’t find any. I found the next best thing: Thai Fisherman Pants.

Do Thai fisherman really wear these or not. It doesn’t matter because they work. They work fine for me. I can do Hatha in them. My test subjects: these and these. Not the worlds thickest material but it is still cotton and you can’t see through any of the areas that count. Good for you and everyone else in class.

Are they the same as the $100USD version? Probably not but I don’t care. I’ll worry about that later. You probably can too.

They cost less than $20USD. You don’t have to make any stressful commitments because you spent tons of money on your Yoga clothes. Why wait?

A Yoga International Membership is Awesome

It is worth sharing.

The normal membership is free and it gives you limited access to tons of stuff. Great way to figure out whether you want to see more or not.

There is something for everyone from teachers to parents to you name it.

For example the classes on brain health and yoga for TBI recovery are awesome and you might want to watch them more than once :).
