“Going Paleo” is more than just a diet. It is a lifestyle, which is why this week’s tip of the week is geared more toward lifestyle and not just a food or drink to bring you success with “going paleo”. Part of the Paleo lifestyle is being intentional with your time and energy so that it is spent wisely on the activities and people that are most important to you. Pursue your interests and passions whenever possible. Pursuing adventures that you are excited about, whether personal or business related can help bring about excitement that helps stimulate neuronal growth in your brain. This helps to make you sharper and have more energy for the task as hand. This time of year it is especially appropriate to mention giving back to your community with your time, energy, and resources as this altruistic behavior stimulates increased neuronal energy production. This means you will feel revitalized by helping others and will generally be in a better mood; no one likes a Grinch at Christmas! Also, get out there and try a new activity that interests you. The novelty of a different activity also stimulates neuronal growth so your brain doesn’t simply stagnate with where you are in life right now.
Neuronal growth and energy are important to living a healthy lifestyle as it enables your brain to process more effectively and gets you out of that “daze” of just doing the same boring routine over and over again. Happy December, everyone!
