I have compiled here a list of popular habits that many people use and have no idea how much it inhibits their effectiveness and damages their health. Some kind of reminder.
▫️ Sleep deprivation. Yes, it's also a habit. When you go to bed and your body already wants to go to sleep and you haven't yet, then this struggle with sleep starts, where you watch some obscure videos, articles, and so on. Sleep deprivation creates a deficit of important hormones and affects brain function. So someone who can't go to bed without additional "rituals" is severely suppressing their potential.
▫️ Sugar. Abusing sugar greatly affects how your body will respond to food and how it will feel afterwards. If after eating you want to sleep, lie down, no energy, it's a very bad sign. Also, sugar is often the cause of acne.
▫️ A passive lifestyle. It is my deep conviction that a man should move. It's not even so much about sports as it is about going somewhere, trying something, watching something. I talk to men on both coasts and those who constantly create adventures for themselves are wealthier and more interesting individuals.
▫️ Overeating. It happens especially when stressed or when there's nothing to do. Often it is something like trying to drown out some thoughts or worries. But then there are those who just don't know how to control their portions. This is one of my habits. I have to put a lot of effort into it, but it's necessary to feel good and this "restriction" always pays for itself.
▫️ Melancholy. It's hard to live when you're constantly dissatisfied with everything. Understandably, everyone has crises and bad moods are common. But when it's your habitual state, what motivation can we talk about when even such basic things are under pressure? The role of the victim is a weak position and needs to be dealt with.
I'm sure many will have more than one match. Effectiveness starts with working on such seemingly basic things. Fix the situation here and you'll already feel the change. Save it, reread it, and teach a friend.
