Ex-CNNer Amber Lyon has found a unique way of dealing with the PTSD-laden reporting stresses she experienced in a decade of covering wars, sex trafficking, and bloodshed.
Forget Arianna Huffington‘s “Thrive” techniques for a moment. Amber isn’t subscribing to the Third Metric, Huffington‘s woo-woo answer to working too hard. Instead, Amber’s into magic mushrooms.
And no, this is not The Onion.
This may sound pretty out there, but Lyon, according to Mediaite, has created a new site called Reset.me to help cure stress so intense that she began having sleep and memory problems. She’s calling it “independent psychedelic journalism.”
Watch as she learns about psychedelic tea in Oaxaca, Mexico. The magic mushroom grower, who seems like he’s on another planet, explains that cow shit helps some of his loopy mushrooms grow.
