Health & Fitness. Self-Improvement. Travel. Nonfiction. HTML:If you've been looking for something different to level up your health, fitness, and personal growth, this is it.Melissa Urban, Whole30 CEO and New York Times bestselling author
Discover the evolutionary mind and body benefits of living at the edges of your comfort zone and reconnecting with the wild.

In many ways, were more comfortable than ever before. But could our sheltered, temperature-controlled, overfed, underchallenged lives actually be the leading cause of many our most urgent physical and mental health issues? In this gripping investigation, award-winning journalist Michael Easter seeks out off-the-grid visionaries, disruptive genius researchers, and mind-body conditioning trailblazers who are unlocking the life-enhancing secrets of a counterintuitive solution: discomfort.
 
Easters journey to understand our evolutionary need to be challenged takes him to meet the NBAs top exercise scientist, who uses an ancient Japanese practice to build championship athletes; to the mystical country of Bhutan, where an Oxford economist and Buddhist leader are showing the world what death can teach us about happiness; to the outdoor lab of a young neuroscientist whos found that nature tests our physical and mental endurance in ways that expand creativity while taming burnout and anxiety; to the remote Alaskan backcountry on a demanding thirty-three-day hunting expedition to experience the rewilding secrets of one of the last rugged places on Earth; and more.
 
Along the way, Easter uncovers a blueprint for leveraging the power of discomfort that will dramatically improve our health and happiness, and perhaps even help us understand what it means to be human. The Comfort Crisis is a bold call to break out of your comfort zone and explore the wild within yourself.

I really enjoyed the different facets explored throughout this book. My only complaint was that it didn't really cover any sex differences. ( )

So, I'm still pretty early on in the book and thus will probably end up banging out a fuller review that says more later, but so far this book really isn't quite resonating with me. It seems it has some good points to express, but as was said by LT user muumi, Michael Easter is absolutely approaching this from what sounds like an middle-to-upper-middle class perspective, and as someone who's lower class and has been straddling the poverty line most of my life, it feels almost like the book is talking past me to this hypothetical middle/middle-class person assumed to be the reader, if that makes sense? Like, I can't find it again, but I remember reading a line that said something about most people not needing to worry about where their next meal comes from, and like, I'm definitely not the "most people" presented in that hypothetical because that worry is absolutely something I've bumped up against multiple times in my life. Its actually been managing to make the parts of the book I've read thus far feel like a legitimate slog, because it makes so much of what's being said just not apply to me at all, all the while the author sounds very confident that it absolutely will apply to the reader.

EDIT: I actually just ended up sending it back to the library before finishing. Hold queue was large and I didn't see a point in holding it up for a book I'm not even too keen on. ( )

Hoy, más que nunca, vivimos en condiciones de extrema comodidad. Nunca nos quedamos sin comida, no sufrimos temperaturas extremas y nuestro principal reto es alcanzar y mantener una relativa estabilidad. Sin embargo, este estilo de vida podría ser la principal causa de todos nuestros males físicos y mentales. En este libro, el galardonado periodista Michael Easter emprende un viaje en solitario a una de las zonas más salvajes del planeta para descubrirnos el gran secreto de nuestro bienestar: la incomodidad.


A lo largo de su periplo se cruzará con ermitaños, aventureros, monjes y científicos que le desvelarán una de las grandes paradojas que rige nuestras vidas: por qué alejarnos del confort nos sienta tan bien. Desde las prácticas ancestrales japonesas que utilizan los atletas de élite hasta los ritos iniciáticos de las tribus más aisladas del mundo, pasando por los últimos avances de la neurociencia sobre el cansancio y la ansiedad, La trampa del confort demuestra por qué exponernos a condiciones límite puede ayudarnos a reconectar con nuestra naturaleza más primitiva y alcanzar así una vida más saludable y placentera.

Our modern world we enjoy so many comforts. We can control our temperature, order food, and clean our house from our phones all while sitting on our recliner. But what is all this comfortable living has made us soft, physically and mentally?

While regaling us a fascinating story of a month long caribou hunt, Micheal throws ideas and theories of unattended consequences of our modern life. Is the pinnacle of life really sitting in a comfortable chair, watching Netflix, and eating an UberEats delivered meal?

Michael Easter does say a lot of things that resonate with me. Modern life has stunted us, physically and mentally.
