About how I became a huge fan of cold showers, intermittent fasting and followed many other advice from all sorts of sources. With only one goal in my mind – to improve myself in some ways.
But then something went wrong. Because I was following everybody else’s advice, and missed the most important one. The message from my own body. To stop this nonsense and listen to myself first.
It’s important to educate yourself about things, but it’s also vital to stay critical and mindful with the sources of information.
Even if something is proven by science, it doesn’t give you the guarantee that your body will react well to it.
It’s really important that you listen to yourself, and use your own senses for doing this. The only knowledge you need is the knowledge about your own body.
We were all born with this knowledge, but forgot about it, because we have too many distractions around us. Everything is so noisy these days that we don’t hear ourselves anymore.
There is one tool I’d really recommend, though. Some mindfulness, which can help you to connect with your body. Or anything else that works in a similar way.
