wow :thumbs: now this was exceedingly well narrated. It's very good that you articulate so well and don't speak too fast. That way it is really easy to understand and follow along. I think you put the great advice the author gives in this chapter into practice ;) it is a great chapter and I totally agree with what she says.

I only found a few small things to edit, only one obvious wrong pronunciation, the rest is totally fine. Well done !!!

> at 0:13: this is optional, but didn't you want to include the chapter number before each chapter, as you also wrote in the MW ? So: "One. The freedom of life"; or "Chapter one. The Freedom of life". Whatever you want to do, I would do it consistently throughout the project.

> at 12:57: "combined with our own selfish inheritances" – you say "combined with their own selfish instances". If you want to listen to it: https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/inheritance

> at 14:08: "he is free if he has the opportunity to disobey it" -you say something like "aportionity". :hmm: It is stressed on the third syllable: "op-por-TUNE-ity" https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/opportunity

> at 16:25: "and to give our stomachs no restful opportunity" – same here

> at 16:35: "The right way gives us the opportunity" - and a third time

thanks

another great chapter, for all those who struggle with sleeplessness. Not sure whether it's easy though, to implement what she preaches.

I only found one small repeat to be cut here:

> at 8:02: repetition, one version can get cut: "we hear noises in the street that we"

the rest was excellent :)

I wasn't sure either when I read it first time. But, after reading this particular chapter 3-4 times, I got the understanding somewhat that it's all about adjusting your mind in accordance with the environment and circumstances rather than resisting it mindfully. That way, we can really improve ourselves. I think I do struggle with my routines a lot...it still helps me though.




Also, I want to know if there are any suggestions from you, through which I can narrate better and effectively than I'm doing now.
Please let me know...
