So, What’s a “Wisdom Pill”?

It’s a daily medication we highly recommend. Each post we offer is just that: a pill of wisdom, easily digestible, completely free of charge and possessing only long-term, enlightening side effects. There’s a ton of intelligent information out there, but what good is it without the wisdom to properly apply it? This is where we come in.

Browsing our site you will find everything from light-hearted listicles and quotes, to the latest in green and ethical tech, to advice from some of the finest and most fascinating minds, both ancient and modern. Whether we’re writing about Indigenous American philosophy or riffing on jokes from comedians like Betty White or Ellen Degeneres, the common core is one of insight — insight that is applicable to humans everywhere, no matter their beliefs (or lack thereof), background or position in society. We’re all in this thing together.

We’ve also devoted ourselves to collecting many of the most widely-circulated anecdotes and urban legends from the history of the internet — and prior to it — and sourcing them properly here, as well as dusting off a number of the wisest cross-cultural myths and giving them a voice once again. And yes, you can take part! We accept unsolicited submissions.

Why Us?

Because we’re legit.

Our content is all original, written or curated by hard-working writers who know what they’re talking about. Mis-information and bad science are not part of what we do. When it comes to the realm of the physical — specifically, the health of our bodies — we don’t dabble in the gray areas that most other media does, but deal instead with the latest meta-analyses and rigorous, well-controlled clinical trials.

Even when it comes to the subjective side of the human experience and we find ourselves venturing into territory that can often, rightly, be named ‘mystical’, we do so with our journalistic integrity intact, bringing you only the finest gems for your consideration. 

We’re relaxed.

You won’t find any dogma or indoctrination here, folks. Quite the opposite, actually. Our content is compassionate, uplifting and invigorating. We are a solution-focused, positive, pro-earth, pro-human organization, and we understand that the best way to help is, of course, to help one another; to open our minds (along with learning the proper time to close them), take risks, relax, laugh, and appreciate life and all of its ‘drama’ a little more; to put healthy things in our bodies; to replace negative thoughts with effective ones; to fare better in our relationships, and to simply enjoy being human more! 

What we strive to do, daily, is land a post in your inbox that you look forward to opening. A post that just may have the power to change the entire tone of your day, and — very possibly — over a longer period of time, your life. It’s as simple, and as awesome, as that.

We’re easy.

While we do get pretty in-depth from time to time (some topics simply demand it) our main mission is to simplify. This is what all the wise men and women from history have done, without fail. Real wisdom — the kind that has the power to create lasting, meaningful change in our lives, along with the lives of others — can often be quite complex. What we do is retain the pearls at the center while returning the hard shell to the sea. This is why we love the ‘new journalism’ so many others have been complaining about: there is no more perfect vehicle for what we’ve set out to do. Simple wisdom is the future.

Ultimately, it’s all about waking up. And that’s what we’re doing here: offering you a choice.

Which will it be?
