Bliss – Cheez doodles, Menthos, and Chocolate bars?

Even if you don’t understand a word of Norwegian (which I don’t), I think you will figure out and the essence of this fabulous clip.

Here’s the context: Its Day 86 of Norwegian explorer Aleksander Gamme ‘s solo trek to the South Pole and back. He’s lost 25 kg of body weight.   He has left stashes of equipment and so forth along the way. This video shows him coming across one he left almost three months prior. He has no idea what’s in his stash.  Initially it looks like junk…even so he rifles through full of hope….then unexpectedly he comes across some Cheez Doodles.. and more.

Bliss….is bliss the difference between the previous state and present state?

Enjoy the message, and I think it reminds us that treats really can be treats.  This is the extreme end of treats of course.  But there is a point here!

I am Grant Schofield, Professor of Public Health at Auckland University of Technology and director of the university's Human Potential Centre (HPC) located at the Millennium Campus in Auckland, New Zealand. My research and teaching interests are in wellbeing and chronic disease prevention especially reducing the risk and eventual mortality and morbidity from obesity, cardiovascular disease, and diabetes. I live by the motto "be the best you can be" and have a strong commitment to peak performance in which I also do consulting work. I’ve been interested in human health and performance for my whole career. I started in psychology, went into sport and exercise psychology, then into public health, especially physical activity, then obesity. There have been some twists and turns along the way, which are the reasons for why I do what I do – you can read about those in my first blog entry. I want to know how we can be the best we can be. This crosses disciplines such as biology, medicine, pubic health, and productivity management. The cornerstones are nutrition, exercise, sleep, neuroscience, psychology and wellbeing. In my blog, I cover these topics under the broad heading of the Science of Human Potential.
