‘Micro-dosing’ LSD is not just a Silicon Valley trend – it is spreading to other workplaces

A reliance on cognitive-enhancing technologies to cope with demanding working conditions may ultimately reduce the health and well-being of individuals. So we must take care to ensure that enhancement is not seen as a substitute for a healthy working environment.

In an increasingly competitive world it is tempting to find a quick fix to help us achieve more, better and faster … Yet, is this right? As a society we should consider the reasons as to why healthy people choose to use drugs in the first place … It is therefore important that more research is done on the safety and efficacy of microdosing. In the meantime, physical exercise, education, social interaction, mindfulness and good quality sleep have all been shown to improve cognitive performance and overall well-being.
