2/8/16 – Caveman Coffee Co. – WLC Week 4: Perform a Mental Challenge, Puzzle, or Task


Practice Dates: Saturday, February 6 – Friday, February 12

Simple Instructions:

  • Complete 10 minutes of whatever type of mental challenge or brain exercise you like. It can be different each day.
  • Some suggestions are crossword puzzles, sudoku, memorization challenges, logic puzzles, or a really challenging game with some decent science behind it like Dual N-Back.
  • You do not need to be able to complete the puzzle you choose in 10 minutes in order to get credit for doing the practice.

This weeks lifestyle challenge is brought to you by our friends at Caveman Coffee Company.  They’re not only a Single Origin/Single Estate Coffee, they are a Single Family Coffee. Their beans are grown, washed, dried, and roasted by one family. That’s right, a father and son team run the growing and drying in Colombia and the other two sons handle the small batch roasting.

Caveman Coffee doesn’t just do coffee, either.  Their Pirate Lifestyle is deep rooted in a performance based lifestyle which questions traditional stigmas of nutrition and exercise.

Pirate Your Life Back

We are often asked what the meaning is, behind the whole “Pirate Life thing.” Here it is.

We believe in personal responsibility. Not living the average, helpless life, with average health and a slow decline into accepted sickness. The foundation of health can be broken down into focused nutrition and fitness and  what the general medical industry considers “healthy” is beyond sub-par.

We encourage you to “Pirate Your Life Back,” by going far beyond average, into the healthiest, most vibrant person you can be. This requires education and awareness as well as a ton of self motivation and effort. You will also have to go against what other people are comfortable with and surly beyond some of the things you are comfortable with. This is living the Pirate Life. A life uncommon and, a lot ,against the grain. The payoff is real confidence, real physical and mental health and the most vibrant life you can live. So are you a Pirate?
