Psychiatrist Dr. Daniel Amen lays out the Brain Smart Path to help you stay in focus on your journey towards a healthier lifestyle. When you apply these five keys, the results will surprise you. Increase your mental capacity, optimize your vitality and longevity, have a younger appearance, create more income, and improve your relationships.
- KNOW WHAT YOUR MOTIVATION IS
Why do you want to succeed in healthy living? Is it your family?
Your wife? Most people don't want to be a burden on their children. Other
reasons might be to have great energy, look great, make great decisions,
be a great role model, and avoid the dinosaur syndrome (big body, little
brain). Write down 5 things that motivate you and look at them each day.
- PROTECT YOUR DECISION MAKING ABILITY
make better decisions when they know their motivation, their blood sugar
is stable, they get 7-8 hours of sleep each night, have healthy vitamin D
and omega 3 levels, drink little to no alcohol, and eliminate the lies
that drive failure.
- LITTLE LIES DRIVE FAILURE
think dramatically affects how you feel and every decision you make. The
lies you tell yourself are one of the biggest factors that drive illness. Some
lies that drive failure include:
"I don't want to
"I can't eat healthy because
"My while family is
overweight, it's in my genes."
"I can't afford to get
"It's Family Day, Easter,
my birthday, Christmas, Saturday, Sunday, Monday, Tuesday..."
There is always an excuse to hurt yourself. When
you stop believing every thought you have, the quality of your decisions and
your health will increase dramatically.
- FAILURE IS NEVER FATAL
never fatal unless you stop trying. Turn bad days into good information.
Learn from your failures and keep working at it until you get it right.
- UNTREATED BRAIN DISORDERS
Untreated brain disorders like ADD, anxiety,
depression, addiction and grief can be improved when you choose to eat the right foods.
