In this episode, we discuss how you can apply the scientific method to your life. As children we are natural scientists and experiment with the world to learn how things work. As we physicians we are trained scientists. We want to cultivate that intellectual curiosity and start to apply what we have learned thus far about our power, our control, our choices, our ability to improve our own lives with purposeful experiments. We then examine the results and move forward better informed.
