What is the number one way of learning? Repetition. And it applies to everything, even the most seemingly mundane aspects of life.
I’m sitting at the airport, and this woman I’ve been talking to sees me finish eating and wrap up the other half of my sandwich. With surprise in her eyes, she asks, “What are you doing?”
“Well, I’ll eat the rest later,” I reply.
I know that if I just stuff it all in there, it’ll just weigh me down.
What’s the number one use of yoru body’s energy? This alone will change your life, if you apply it daily.
The answer is digesting food.
Seventy percent of your energy goes to your digestive system. So, I knew that if I ate the rest of that sandwich, I’d have less energy.
Now, these are simple concepts, the kind of stuff you’d think to yourself, “I know that.”
How about this – how long does it take for your stomach to tell your brain that you’re full? Thirty minutes. In the meantime, we just keep stuffing our faces because we haven’t given the stomach time to tell the brain that it’s full.
When I wrapped the other half of that sandwich up, I wasn’t all that hungry, but I certainly could have eaten it. But by giving my body a little time, my brain got the chance to let me know, “You’re full. You’re happy.” That wouldn’t have happened if I did’t give my brain a chance to catch up.
These are just such practical things, but they’ll change your health, which will change your energy, which will push you to change your concepts, and that makes you feel better about yourself.
