Writing and Body Hacks: Benefits of Ritual and Fasting

We're back after a little break! This time, Nora Young talks about this New York Times profile of author, Philip Pullman. In particular, she looks at his very specific rituals around writing. Nora and Cathi talk about journaling and their own rituals for writing. Nora's preferred method: pomodoro! Cathi Bond looks at a study on the benefits of fasting, in particular, 5 days of 'regular' eating a week, and 2 days of extremely limited calorie intake (via New Atlas). Do you have rituals to get in the mood to work? Have you tried fasting, and if so, have you seen any benefits? Let us know!
