TAKE CHARGE OF YOUR BRAIN

TAKE CHARGE OF YOUR BRAIN

  • Brain-clipart-4-illustration-by-seamartini-graphics-image-0

The thing on the top of everybody is the Noggin, the location of the greatest computer in the world, called the BRAIN. The brain responds to the five senses, Sound, Sight, Smell, Taste, and Touch. This big fat mussel we call the brain will take in all the data of what, how, and why we do what we do. It will read the emotions of fear, jealousy, greed, anger, and all other negative thoughts. It will also take in   love, forgiveness and all other positive thoughts. From all that input we respond and do it very fast.

Once you memorize and do stuff like ABC’s, foreign language, driving a car, I mean everything it then becomes a habit.

The brain is a lazy dude. Once something becomes a habit the brain does not want you to change. It hates anything new, any change. If you are hooked on a habit you are addicted. If it is a good habit that is a good thing, if a bad habit that is a bad thing.

I am addicted to walking, that is a good thing.

I was addicted to drinking too many sugar drinks, that is a bad thing.

The lazy brain will fight changing either one. What do I do? Sugar drinks are called a drug by doctors.

Ninety-nine % of me being smart is knowing what I am dumb at. I know nothing about how a drug addict can get off drugs and stays off. I got advice from a professional athlete who quit cigarettes and stayed off. He weaned himself off little by little. So here is what I did. Drink a little more water and a little less sugar drink. Drink a little more water and a whole lot less sugar drink. Drink a little more water and no sugar drink. It took about four months and I have not had a sugar drink in the last four years.

Ask Questions and listen to those who “Walk the Talk”.  At a 5K event several years ago I overheard an Ironman talking to a newbie.  He said that if you are serious about the rigorous training you must learn to breathe deep, really deep.

When I get stressed out I may talk before I think, and have been known to lose my temper. I know better, but that dumb brain lets me do it anyway.

I have learned from a Yoga instructor how to breathe deeply most all the time. If you breathe deeply it is almost impossible to lose your temper. Another thing has happened by breathing deeply. My time for 5K events is faster now than in the past 11 years. Sorry dumb brain, that is another bad habit I got rid of and replaced it with the habit of deep breathing.

Have a Healthy Happy Day and breathe deeply

BEANS and PEAS

BEEFITBOB AND THE HEALTHY HAPPY SHOPPING TIP OF THE DAY

The experts say beans and peas are great sources of protein and fiber and a bunch of other stuff. How did people know what to eat before we invented all the fancy word to tell us more than we really want to know. Fresh and fresh frozen are a good way to get them.Many canned beans have lots of sodium   You can take them out of the can and and wash away about a third of that sodium.

Look for cans that say "No-Salt-Addes_added. or (with no other ingredients added).

Add beans and peas to salads, soups and side dishes or make them the main dish.  If you got the time,use dry beans or peas, soak them overnight and make some great meals.  Look up old recipes that Mom and Gran had.

Eating six or more fresh or fresh frozen fruits and veggies and nuts is a way to healthy happy living.

Not all ground turkey and chicken is a better choice than ground beef. Some ground turkey includes skin, which adds a bunch of saturated fat. Look for lean lighter poultry rather than fatty dark meat.

Choose cuts of red meat and pork labeled loan or round.Shop for extra lean( at least 90%) ground beef. Get good at grilling, broiling baking and roasting.
