First of all, it is vitally important to have good habits, practices and rituals to live a good life.
Or habits + practices + rituals = routines
You can use the above formula to test weather you believe you are living well or surviving well.
Second, living the ‘good life’ does no harm and may help you live a better life if and when you discover a way to improve your day to day life.
Picking good habits that do no harm is a good start.
Your body has discovered over billions of years of evolutionary history to move from star dust to the complex multi-organism it is today.
Each part of the body works together in ways that make it easy to live a good life.
But first we must learn about the habits that the body does each day.
We have the habit of sleep, eating and exercise.
Let’s take sleep as an example.
To sleep well, you must eat and exercise well.
To sleep well, you must fall to sleep for approximately 8 hours a night.
Most of us, take it for granted when we do this each night.
We do all of the following habits from within the body: produce all the necessary hormones, digest all of our food, have a healthy body to allow all of these habits to work.
For example, if we don’t have a strong enough stomach acid, we can not digest our food.
And as a consequence we will not sleep well.
The more we understand our body’s routine, the better we will live our lives.
This is an example of the mind/body formula above that teaches us how to create a better body routine.
