We have a standard rationalization for not honouring our commitments, not spending quality time with our family, or for not meditating or working out. We claim to be too busy.
Though it feels true that we are busy, it is all just smoke and mirrors and is reversible. We need to develop a habit of not being busy, even while having the same amount of workload.
We need to find a way where we are:
Our brains are not reliable food sensors, and our taste buds are affected not just by the food that we put in our mouths, but a variety of electrical signals from our brain, body and all the other sense organs.
When we watch a horror movie or are on a roller coaster, we feel certain tingling sensations in our bodies, which is telling us to be cautious, warning and signalling any danger that may be around us.
Our bodies have a primary directive: To protect our life, and a person who is taking any kind of risk, like a trapeze artist, for example, has to actively listen to the various signals given by the body.
