I tend to stay up late, and right now I’m actually watching a PBS show right now called Change Your Brain Change Your Body. It features Dr. Amen of Amen Clinics, he’s pretty legit. He’s a multiple New York Times best-selling author, and I just learned he’s the host of 4 public television shows. I knew he was an author, but I checked out his Wikipedia page to learn more about him.
I’m learning a lot of the science behind what I do, some of which I knew, some I didn’t. He’s really going at it right now, he’s talking about some 10-step method, and being very emotional about his grandfather. He’s kind of tearing up. Awesome.
Change Your Brain Change Your Body System
Anyways, I think what he’s doing is really interesting, it takes everything I do and put it into a very conscious system. It’s not just about changing your body (weight loss and exercise) but also boosting your progress and overall health and success with your brain. It’s pretty simple when you look at it… And also really obvious since that’s the title.
He’s using timeless principles and backing it up with a lot of steps, and with science, and can help people tailor their own process for success.
He sort of reminded me that sleep is pretty important, I’ve realized it a lot lately, especially since I got about 10 hours last night and about 15 hours the rest of the week. I’ll try getting at least 7 now, preferably 8.
Here’s a short list of things he’s talking about:
- Sugar, coffee, sweeteners, and other bad things for you
- SPECT tests
- Peoples’ stories
- Reversing/improving brain problems
- How obesity is related to the brain
- A lot of ways to help
- Public television, and how I should buy his programs to help PBS
- Overweight brain types
- Not lying to yourself
- Brain size relative to brain size
And way more… I just don’t remember everything, and I’m kinda lazy.
What I do, which seems to go hand-in-hand with this:
- Get morning exercise
- Managing stress – using meditation and sometimes forms of hypnosis
- Stay away from soda, candy, and desserts
- Eat healthy in general
- Infrequent drugs or alcohol
- Not getting hit too hard in the head
- Feel happier, and be more positive
Those are a few things I do, and so far I’m doing pretty well. I just thought it was interesting, and you should check out some things by Dr. Daniel G. Amen. No affiliate links, I’m not an internet marketer, I’m just sort of a fanboy.
