Habit has been called the invisible architecture of our lives. Often, though, the design’s more busy than minimalist.

It’s against (and possibly with) this chaos that Leo Babauta founded Zen Habits, his full-time blog “about finding simplicity in the daily chaos of our lives.” Founded in 2007, the monochrome, Georgia-set blog is a safe haven for a million readers.

In a new post, Babauta outlines how to fight daily stresses and anxieties with calm. We’ve got a few examples of how to:

The unprecedented work could provide a useful tool for studying new therapies for neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s.

Ever wanted to see a thought?

The insides of computer systems are often portrayed in science fiction movies as vast arcologies of virtual structures, with whizzing electrical impulses flashing through them. As it turns out, our brains might not look very different from our dreams of artificial computing entities.

For the first time, Japanese scientists captured video of a thought being formed, and it looks pretty much like miniature lightning tracing its way through a meshed structure of neurons:
