Animal Welfare & Alternative Proteins in the United Arab Emirates

“ Since 1980, the country’s animal product consumption has been on a downward trend”

Is there a source for this? (I might have missed out on it from the post. )

EA is more than longtermism

I think EA Grants is different from EA Funds. EA Grants was discontinued a while back - https://www.effectivealtruism.org/grants

My experience with imposter syndrome — and how to (partly) overcome it

I note down certain lines my therapist tells after a session. I look over them from time to time. One that's stuck with me is  "You don't need everything to fall in place for you to be okay. You don't need everything to fall in place for you to love yourself." These act as good reminders for me when things aren't going so well in my life. 

But other than that, I've found reading things like what Luisa has put out to be very useful. For example, someone sent me this essay by a law professor that was super valuable to read.  

I've also found self-hypnosis and meditation helpful but I think these can have varying degrees of usefulness for people.

Thanks for writing this! Especially this part:

I strongly recommend you aim to decouple your self-worth from your productivity and impact — to internalise that you have intrinsic worth no matter how productive you are or how much impact you have.

I was lucky to have a therapist who was able to help me internalise this, and I think it has been incredibly valuable in helping me break some of my negative thought patterns and self-deprecating tendencies.

Fair, this is good for me to know!
