Dr Mark Plotkin studies how remote tribes across the Amazon use plants for medicinal purposes. He suggests there is much we can learn from the lifestyles of those isolated communities.
“What we find is that people don’t suffer from stress, heart disease, insomnia, and that they spend time with their families. We may not be ready to give up our iPhones and iPads and never eat Thai food again, but the life lessons are clear: slow down, don’t spend time worrying about things you can’t do anything about.”
I can live with that.
