You may not know this about me but I love to read and learn about all kinds of topics (I mention this a bit in my 10 Things You Don’t Know About Me post). In particular I’ve been very interested in science lately. However, in the past few weeks I’ve felt like my days have been getting shorter and my free time has disappeared so it has been hard to keep up with learning.
Not being able to constantly nourish my mind has been pretty tough for me to get used to. So when I started a food Tumblr documenting my daily nibbles (and my personal Tumblr sharing nerdy things) I started trying to follow blogs that would teach me new things or inspire me to know more about the world. Hence the link below! Check out my favorite intellectual tumblr’s as well as my favorite food blog. Whenever I have a spare moment I check my dashboard to learn new things without having to search high and low through different websites.
Science based blogs:
- ASAP Science: They have new videos each week explaining different phenomenons. I once featured here their video on the science of productivity.
- Science Junkie: A mishmash of different science facts, discoveries, and humor throughout the day.
- Stellar-Indulgence: Beautiful photos of the stars and of nature.
- Explore: “A discovery engine for meaningful knowledge, fueled by cross-disciplinary curiosity.”
My favorite food blog is Garden of Vegan. It’s a gorgeous Tumblr full of original photographs from the blogger of ILoveVegan.com. Although I’m not a vegan I do draw a lot of food inspiration from her pictures. It isn’t science based but I thought it warranted a mention.
What little things do you do to incorporate more learning into your day? How do you keep your brain fresh?
