The mind is a wonderful thing. It can also be our own worst enemy.
When we find ourselves in a state we aren’t happy with the mind is quick to justify it.
Maybe you have a weight issue, or feel lethargic all the time.
One bout in the gym has you sore for days, where just five years ago you could have done that all week.
How did this happen? How did I get to be like this?
Simple questions that the mind can craft complex answers to. It can always connect the dots, and often makes up whatever dots it wants to along the way.
You have a built-in lie detector: your body.
If your body is saying one thing, and your mind another, trust the 200,000 years of evolution that have shaped our species.
Listen to your body. Mute everything else.
