Non- Fiction Book of The Month
In his book Death by Comfort: How Modern Life is Killing Us and What We Can Do About It, Paul Taylor argues that our modern lifestyles are making us overweight, sick, and unhappy. He explains that our bodies and brains are evolved to live in a very different environment than the one we live in today, and that this mismatch is leading to a number of health problems.
Taylor points out that we are more sedentary than ever before, and that we eat a diet that is high in processed foods and sugar. He also argues that our digital world is isolating us and making us less stressed. All of these factors contribute to a number of health problems, including obesity, heart disease, diabetes, and depression.
Taylor believes that the key to living a healthier and happier life is to embrace discomfort. He recommends that we get more exercise, eat a healthier diet, and reduce our screen time. He also suggests that we spend more time in nature and connect with other people.
Death by Comfort is a well-written and informative book that provides a compelling argument for why we need to make changes to our modern lifestyles. Taylor is a passionate advocate for health and well-being, and his book is full of practical advice that readers can follow to improve their health and happiness.
