You Made Me Think!

Lists That Make Your Life Better, Based On Scientific Study Results

Do you hear plausible ideas about health? Every day? I do, too. It gets maddening, doesn’t it? You’d like to agree with your friends, but how do you know it’s true? How can you be confident? And how do you say so? It’s not easy. I think that’s because plausible claims are easy to make, but really difficult to check. That’s partially why science was developed – to figure things out methodically so the work could be checked. And science has been incredibly successful at that, but science is complex and nuanced, so communicating it in a way that people can use everyday is a real challenge.

I need the best advice science has to offer in simple lists, for people like me with ADHD. And there aren’t great sources for this kind of thing, so I started You Made Me to make simple, easy-to-use lists that are based on solid scientific studies. And update the lists when new research comes out, so you can rest with a bit of confidence that your lists will be current.

From now on, my brain is only accepting scientifically compelling input. If you have an opinion, great, please show me the science. That’s what this site is about.

You’ll find beautiful lists of things you can do to make your life better, all based on cited scientific studies. The lists are designed so you can use them however you like: print and stick on your fridge, save to your phone for shopping, share on social media.

We love suggestions. If you have any, please let me know and we’ll consider making a list.
