    Stress has become an epidemic and it influences the health, happiness, and well-being of millions of people every day. This is especially true for people living in the western world. However, indigenous cultures were seemingly much better at coping with the adversities they were exposed to and stress levels were low. Why is it that we, with our modern lifestyle,  are becoming more and more unable to cope with stress? And how can we change this negative spiral and increase stress tolerance? This week,  I am talking to Phillip Ghezelbash, an expert in stoicism and the author of ”The Stoic Body”. We will uncover some of the reasons why most people have difficulty coping with stress and how stoicism can help you increase stress tolerance. In this podcast, you’ll learn.

On one hand, our sensitivity is a gift. We can sense intuitively what is best for us and what is best for the whole. We get amazing insights because we are energy sensitive. We have healing talents. We have intuitive psychic gifts. It helps us make decisions in our everyday life. In a world that seems run by science and logic, every person on the planet uses intuition added to their logic as a way of understanding what they experience. Yet the world doesn't recognize intuition as a valid path of knowing, but it is. The sensitivity that we have is a gift as we are privy to a whole spectrum of understanding that many have not cultivated yet. On the other hand, the gift of sensitivity is a challenge, in that we deeply feel the suffering and emotions of others and the world. We take on and transmute the emotions of others. We feel people and sometimes we don't know that we are feeling other people's feelings and thinking other people's thoughts, and taking on other people's stuff. We clear energy by being sensitive. We transmute negativity.

By aggregating the heating and air conditioning supply for multiple buildings, district energy systems optimize thermal energy efficiency. Moreover, they can use surplus heat from power plants, industrial processes and local renewable sources to cut emissions, reduce energy consumption and strengthen local economies. Combined heat and power (CHP) refers to facilities that simultaneously generate electricity and useful heat, thereby achieving very high efficiencies—more than 80 percent in many cases. Microgrids are robust electricity networks that can be operated in parallel with, or independently of, the utility grid. These three technologies complement each other and can be implemented together, optimizing the whole energy system and creating much greater resilience, which is especially important when extreme weather events occur.
