I’ve been a big believer in the power of the mind and its ability to self-modify. I find myself learning new things as I get older and the more I work in the world outside of my own thoughts, feelings, sensations, and actions the more I learn about myself and how I am living. I often find myself learning something new or doing something completely new and I feel that the more I do, the more I am able to learn.
The more I learn about my own body, the more I am able to self-modify. Of course, I don’t mean that I am able to completely change my body by changing my diet. I mean that I am able to change the way my body learns to perform or adapt to any environment. I am also able to physically change my health and well-being by my own efforts. For me, the most important thing to learn is that it is possible to learn how to learn.
One of the most important things I’ve learned in my education in the field of sports nutrition is that there are always going to be exceptions to the rule. Of course, there are always going to be exceptions to the rule of eating the right foods and sleeping enough and exercising at the right time. There are always going to be exceptions to the rule of the amount of sleep you get. But no matter what the exception is, the rule is still the same.
I really want to believe this. I believe that the vast majority of us, no matter what we do, will be able to find something that works for us that we are doing it to improve our health. Of course there are going to be people out there who are doing things to improve their health that are completely wrong, but those people are obviously not going to be a part of the 99.9% that believe that they can get health that works.
Well, we’ve got more evidence that 99.9% of us are not getting the health that we need. It’s been years since we’ve really had decent evidence that we are getting the health that we need.
The problem is, when we look for a health product, we make a choice between “buy a drug and hope”, “buy a product that will help you to feel better, and hope that the product works”, or “buy a product that will help you to feel better, and hope that the product does not work for you”. The two things we want to do are the former and the latter. The former is much more convenient.
The second thing we want to do is keep more of the things that are bad for us. The things that we are genetically programmed to hate, like alcohol and caffeine, and the things that are bad for us, like smoking, eating junk food, and not getting enough sleep.
As you might imagine, our health is pretty much the first thing we want to fix. And the reason is because it is a natural, built-in part of our DNA. We are genetically programmed to hate and fear things, which is the reason we have to fight them to survive. But as a society we have to accept that some things are just bad for us, like cigarettes and junk food.
Sure, it’s easy to hate on things like cigarettes and junk food. You just need to find a way to make it really hard to do so. As a society we still have a culture where many people choose to hide these habits from us, like the fact that most people would never get caught sleeping in their car after getting into a car accident.
This is basically the same as saying we should all eat at home. We should all be eating in our own home. We should all be able to go to the grocery store, the pharmacy, and the doctor’s office. We should all be able to shop online without asking a store employee. We should all be able to get a prescription without going to the pharmacy. We should all be able to walk to our bank without having to go in a bank.
