Okay, today is Day #4 how are you holding up?
Partaking in new activities stimulates not just your mind but your entire nervous system. Stagnation = death. Complacency and lack of movement are the precursors of sickness and disease.
Think of a stream that becomes stagnant. Think of a tree that’s close to dying. It’s stiff, brittle, and doesn’t move.
We as humans get into ruts. We get lulled into a life free of emotion that’s full of comfort. We become slaves to these ruts because we don’t have to think or grow. Eventually, the ruts become so deep that we can no longer see over the edges, we can only see forward or backward.
Ruts are what eventually lead us to death.
This is why your nervous system needs constant stimulation. Our nervous system is like a dog, it likes to have projects, it likes to work
This is why it’s important to carry out tasks each day that actually make the brain work. This could be anything from taking a different route home from work, or eating with your opposite hand, or trying a new type of food.
Make it a daily task to try new things. Talk to new people and force your brain to work. Your nervous system strives for the correct type of daily stimulation.
Instructions: Find something easy you can do today that will make your brain work. Change up your routine, brush your teeth with the opposite hand. Try SOMETHING new. Use the hashtag #ExtremeHealthChallenge to show us how you’re doing it!
