Do you hate eating? Does stopping for lunch in the middle of your work day bog you down? Do you find eating so many different things on your plate to be a waste of space? Well do we have an episode for you. In this episode of The Productivity Lab, Kyle and Mark take a dive into the world of meal replacements like Soylent and Huel. Meal replacements promise a brave new world where we no longer have to stop in the middle of a busy day to prep our food, instead those pesky wasted minutes can be recovered with a few scoops of powder, and splash of water, and a good shake of the blender bottle. Voilà! You have yourself a complete meal in a matter of seconds. Are meal replacements all that they’re hyped up to be? Are they really a good substitute for a nice meal?

It might be February, but it’s never too late to plan out the year. This time we’re testing a year-long experiment: yearly themes. Themes are different from resolutions, where resolutions notoriously fail, themes propose a different approach: they provide a filter to make all your decisions through. A theme allows you to ask yourself questions like “Is this what I should be doing right now?” or “What’s the best way to fulfill my theme today?” Instead of relying on lofty goals. A theme, in this sense, is a way of life. In this episode of The Productivity Lab, Kyle and Mark share their themes for 2020, and why they picked them. What are your themes for 2020? Tweet them to us or message us on Instagram.
