Solving for Ego

Your brain’s "default mode network" can be seen as your "ego," interpreting (mediating) your inner and outer worlds.
Too much ego can lead to rumination, depression, OCD, and addiction.

One way to quiet ego: get a physical hobby that recognizes mastery. Move out of your head into reality.

The newest shortcut: shrooms.
