Reagan’s Roundup (11/13)

Start listening

Welcome to this week’s edition of Reagan’s Roundup!

Well, I’ve finished moving across the country and am now in the Great Lakes State! Thank you for your prayers. Just getting settled in now, and trying to get back to our regularly scheduled Redeeming Productivity programming. So, to that end…

Here are some links to fuel your journey toward being a more productive Christian.

Here’s how to (properly) put down your phone

I really liked this trick for making you use your phone less. Basically, just challenge yourself to see how many days you can go without charging it. This makes you want to use it less to save battery.

macOS Big Sur is here

If you’re a mac user, you’ll be happy to know a new OS upgrade is here. Nothing super exciting, but it paves the way for the M1 macs coming next year. I do like the new control center, though.

Be forewarned, there are many reports of non-native mac apps not working on Big Sur yet. I, for one, will be waiting a couple of weeks before upgrading.

The Hidden Discipline of John Stott

“Stott’s preaching was methodical and rational, watertight in logic, masterful in explaining biblical truth. This reflected how well-ordered his private world was: in his prayer life; in his dedication to lifelong study; and in his meticulous, relentless quest for clarity—for his own sake quite apart from that of his hearers and readers.”

Vitamin D Supplementation Improves Cognitive Function

There are a ton of benefits to Vitamin D—it improves your mood, fights disease, and can even help with weight loss. Well, a new study has shown that we can add improved cognitive function to the list of Vitamin D benefits.

So if you want to be a clearer thinker, consider getting more sunshine, eating more Vitamin D-rich foods, or taking a supplement. It’s really amazing how the Lord has designed our bodies, isn’t it?

Google Photos Will End Free Unlimited Storage for Most Users

Bad news if you rely on Google photos to backup your memories. Starting June 1, 2021, any photos you upload to Google Photos will count towards your overall Google storage limits. That’s the just 15 GBs which is shared across Google Drive, Gmail, and Photos in the free tier. You can pay for more storage, if you want to keep them on google. But if you want to move your photos to a different service, here’s a handy guide on migrating your photos off of Google.
