Control, goals and habits – let’s get this done.
Hello my friends, I wanted to share with you my 3 simplest daily habits that will allow you to take control of you life and reach all your goals.
So if you are the type of person who subscribes to taking action everyday, getting shit done with simple yet effective techniques – here’s 3 of the best. And at the end, I’m going to tally up the ALL the benefits that these daily habits have on the body, so you can see what they will add to your life.
Now the key to know, in all 3 of these habits is to induce a process in the body known as the ‘hormetic effect’ or hormesis.
Look, I said this would be simple, so to describe inducing hormesis is to describe a process whereby you voluntarily expose the body to a mild stressor. In doing so you will illicit a beneficial biological response.
And I will describe the specific biological benefits of each one starting with daily habit number one.
1. Cold Showers
Taking a cold shower first thing in the morning is a bulletproof habit that is guaranteed to kickstart your day.
Shocking your nervous system in this way is a form of hormesis, which boosts your primordial survival mechanism.
The biological effects of taking a cold shower daily include:
- Massively reducing inflammation, which is associated with disease, infection and a poor immune system.
- Increased energy effect, which is predicated on the levels of mitochondria cells (energy cells) that go up in number during cold exposure.
And with those biologically know effects, I’m going to add my own anecdotal evidence, which is decreased depression, stress and overall a mood enhancing response.
After 2 years of intermittent fasting I am more than convinced now that we’ve all been eating wrong.
If I take you back into your past for just a moment, you’re only alive because of your ancestors’ ability to go for long periods of time without eating. When you fast past a certain period of time, you induce another form of this hormetic effect which boosts physical function.
More specifically the process of autophagy. Now again, I’m going to make this simple. Think of autophagy as your body’s internal recycling system. With no nutrients going in, the body begins to root around inside to those broken and damaged cells to transform them into new sources of energy.
So how does fasting help reach all your goals? Well, again If I take you back to the fasted state of mind of our hunter gather ancestors, it creates this heightened awareness, muscle sparing and higher cognitive state.
We know this not only scientifically correct but logically sound, as this reaction effect helped them focus on their goal of getting their next meal.
In order to survive, you tap into this primal dormant energy on a fast which boosts both mind and body into a state to get shit done.
Although not specifically a hormetic effect, this is a millionaire and billionaire daily habit which is the essence of focus and control. The skills regular meditation imparts on you alone are enough to reach your goals in ALL areas of life.
And it is in this simple sentiment.
We live and we’re born into the age of distraction. If distraction is a skill, you my friend are the master of it. But it’s not entirely your fault. That thing in your pocket, or your hand at this very moment is built to capture your attention, pulling it left and right with notification here, there and everywhere.
Even search around on the screen you’re viewing this on, I promise you there is an advert desperately trying to capture your attention!
Did you know that focus is a skill? It’s actually something you can develop, like a muscle you can train it. However this is not widely known, and because it is not widely known, it is not widely cultivated.
Let me ask you a question. When you were are school, did they teach you how to concentrate?
The interesting thing about formal education is they teach you WHAT to learn before they teach you HOW to learn. And focus is a fundamental skill in the how to learn indeed.
Meditate everyday. Exercise you focus and you will achieve all goals you deem worthy of pursuit.
List of Skills
My friends these are my daily habit to create control in your life and to achieve all goals that you wish to reach.
By taking a daily cold shower, fasting and meditating you WILL experience the following:
- Increased Energy
