Beat the Blues – Week #20 Round-up

What I am reading currently – Why We Sleep by Mathew Walker 

One of Bill Gates’ recommendations from 2019, I finally picked up the book! 

Two chapters in, and I’m already spellbound at the marvel of our brain functions and how sleep plays such a vital role in running them smoothly

This is an A to Z on every question you’ve had on sleep – erratic pattern, vivid dreams, the effect of caffeine, and more.

Prodcast has been a Monday ritual to get power-packed product insights in recent months – and seeing the latest episode’s title set me aback. 

The hosts rightly take a detour from the usual theme to focus on something that’s arguably more important – addressing cyber-bullying.

Thanks to everyone who tuned in to the episode, we’ve donated funds for 55 kids’ meal. 

P.S: We also released Episode #5 with Mukil Ganesan – a masterclass on growth.
