  • Hey there! Welcome to another episode of Dear Blocko!


  • This is the show where I answer your questions about your world and my world. Let's get started!


  • First question up, Nolando asks, "Dear Blocko, why do people keep telling me to touch grass?"

    始めよう!最初の質問、ノランドはこう尋ねている。ええと...そうだな、"touch grass "は外に出て自然を楽しむという意味のことわざだ。

  • Uhwell, "touch grass" is a saying that means to go outside and enjoy nature.

  • You may be hearing it from friends or enemies who think you could benefit from taking a break from technology and the online world by getting some fresh air.


  • Basically, uh, stop what you're doing and go outside, please.


  • And they're not wrong.


  • Researchers found that spending time in nature can improve your mental and physical health by reducing stress and anxiety.

  • In Japan, this practice is known as forest bathing.


  • But some people take their nature walks a step further by going barefoot.


  • This is called grounding or earthing, and advocates say that being in direct contact with the earth allows its electrical charges to have a positive effect on your body.


  • While there's been little research to measure its effects, small, mostly subjective studies claim that it can improve inflammation, pain, and mood.


  • But whether or not you literally touch grass, spending time in nature can be really good for you.


  • The next question about your world is from Skipwreck, "Dear Blocko, why do people like touching each other?"

  • Oh, boy. Okay, uh, well, I will try to answer this without getting demonetized or receiving several angry letters from parents.


  • Okay, physical touch by someone you care about does a lot more to your body than invoke a warm, fuzzy feeling.


  • No, get your minds out of the gutter, people.


  • Okay, I mean touches like hugging or holding hands.


  • Triangle Bob, stop giggling. You're not helping.


  • Researchers have found that these types of touches increase your production of oxytocin, which is often referred to as the love hormone, for its promotion of positive feelings and reduction of stress levels.


  • Yes, I do know about the Billie Eilish song, Triangle Bob.


  • But it could be innocent as well.


  • One study found that holding hands and hugging your partner before a stressful situation can reduce your heart rate and blood pressure by half, which is good for your cardiovascular health.

  • Other studies have found that more hugs lead to a greater resistance to respiratory infections, and holding hands during a scary or painful experience can make you feel calmer and even lessen your pain.


  • And now it's time for a question about my world.

  • Bordorella asks, "Dear Blocko, how do you spend your weekends when you're not making videos?"


  • Well, thank you for asking about my weekend. I wake up and scrub my face of unwanted data.


  • Gotta keep up this pristine appearance.


  • I'll head to the Blocktropolis Farmer's Market with Sir Clea to buy fruits, vegetables, and enough sourdough bread to fill a football stadium.


  • Also, I've been getting really into restoring broken electronics, but Cubot keeps falling in love with them and then they disappear.


  • I'm not asking questions on that one.


  • This piece appeared in my backyard recently, though.


  • It looks like something from your world, so anyone know what this does?


  • Anyway, at night I'll visit my favorite restaurant, Binary Bites, and enjoy a delectable digital donut for dessert.

  • And then I'll spend the rest of the evening reading with Sir Clea.


  • It's so relaxing.


  • Although, I'm just realizing she's read a lot of true crime books.


  • So, do you have any questions about me or my world?


  • Let me know in the comments and use the hashtag #DearBlocko so I can find it. Wanna watch even more Dear Blocko?

    ハッシュタグ「Dear Blocko」をつけてコメントください。もっとDear Blockoを見たい?

  • Well, then you should probably click one of these to watch another episode.


  • Make sure you check out Lifespan, the team that powers Life Noggin, down in the description.

    Life Nogginを動かすチーム、Lifespanのこともぜひチェックしてほしい。

  • And as always, my name is Blocko, this has been Life Noggin, don't forget to keep on thinking.


Hey there! Welcome to another episode of Dear Blocko!
