I’ve been experimenting with intermittent fasting lately. The first five days were a real struggle, but then things started to get easier. The hunger began to dissipate, and my body found its new normal. Having pushed through that first five-day period, new insights began to emerge. For instance, I realised that hunger was more of a habit and less of a genuine physical need although the mind has a tendency to convince us otherwise. But had to pushed through the initial five-day barrier to arrive at this realisation.
According to recent research, intermittent fasting can actually be good for the body. One of the many benefits is that it increases the human growth hormone (HGH).
Like the body (and the brain) benefits from intermittent fasting, the mind benefits from intermittent information dieting. Try reducing your exposure to information for a few hours. Leave your smartphone at home and spend a few hours outdoors. You’ll notice the difference.
