Who's The Boss?
In the last several posts, we have covered the eight laws of health. Although I did not follow the order of the NEWSTART program (i.e. nutrition, exercise, water, sunshine, temperance, fresh air, rest and trust in God), we did cover all eight of them.
Although many of you may already be acquainted with this information, in part; how many of them are you truly implementing?
In summary to the “Big Eight”, it is extremely important to allow the frontal lobe of your brain, which constitutes about one-third of the brain, to govern your choices. In this part of the brain is housed your reasoning, intellect, judgment and will.
In the back lobe is housed your feelings; too many people allow the back part of their brain to control their actions. However, feelings are not to be trusted; they will trick you repeatedly.
Therefore, allow the ‘will’ in your frontal lobe to be the boss, over the feelings in your back lobe. If you do, you will suppress all of the negative reasons designed to keep you from fulfilling the Big Eight and thus will enjoy a far healthier lifestyle.
I know that the struggle can be fierce sometime; I struggle with regular exercise, however, like today, if I just make up my mind to do it; trust in God to give me the strength and desire to get started, usually I will feel so much better afterwards, until I questioned why I hesitated.
We might talk about the frontal lobe more, at a later date. Please keep on looking and reading. Until next time – Bye!
