The curse of Modern Life

Join Dr. Stillman for Q&A on Substack

The Impact of Modern Technology

The shift towards technology and machines replacing human labor is leading to a more confined and indoor lifestyle. Jim L personally chooses to avoid this lifestyle by living in a place less influenced by modern technology. This lifestyle includes spending 90% of the day outdoors, getting fresh air and sunshine, and doing podcasts on the balcony. Jim emphasizes the importance of living a more simple life in touch with nature.

Combatting the Negative Effects

Engaging in outdoor activities like biking, getting morning and evening light, and spending time in nature is essential. Jim encourages physical activities like gardening, mowing your own grass, and doing manual labor to combat sedentary habits. He also advises ensuring access to fresh air and sunlight at home by opening windows and being mindful of indoor air quality. He highlights the essential benefits of sunlight for overall health and well-being.

Impact of Modern Medicine

While modern medicine has helped to address acute health issues effectively, it may not contribute significantly to living a long, active life, unlike the lifestyles of past generations. Jim explains the potential limitations of modern medicine in promoting longevity and emphasizes the importance of holistic well-being.


It's clear that the curse of modern life brings various health consequences, but by consciously engaging in physical activities, spending time outdoors, and being mindful of our lifestyle choices, we can combat these negative effects. Join Jim L in the next wellness session to learn more about living a more balanced and fulfilling life.
