Individual 'global' effects
« on: September 13, 2014, 02:31:13 AM »
You know, you make progress in more than one area without really putting in much exercise.

I was wondering what effects the entire body/mind/emotions/etc....



Sleep
nutrition
exercise, the heart, the brain (if it's really possible to exercise mentally one way and have it transfer)
mental state, emotions I suppose....

What else...?


The point is that you improve one of these areas and everything improves. 


What else does or might do that?  Free progress?  Ex., get an extra hour of sleep, make progress on everything without really doing anything extra?

Variation.  That might be another.  If everything's the same all the time, the body atrophies in some areas and does only as much as it has to.  If things are varied, the body wouldn't be able to do that.

 You sorta covered it already, and the jury's still out on this one with the official decision, but it seems as though there's a great deal of evidence indicating that meditation should qualify.

I like to take Anthony Robbin's model of self-perpetuation, a continuous circle between beliefs/attitudes -> potential -> action -> results -> beliefs/attitudes -> etc. That the only way you're going to see results, even if you have all the resources, is if you do away with any inner conflicts and align your actions with pure intent, then the rest is just momentum. It is why the fat get fatter and the bobs get more paranoid.

I've tried meditating.. it's a good way to delve into the eye of the storm, when all hell is breaking lose in your life. It's good for getting yourself into a parasympathetic state. But how are you going to see improvement in any of those areas, if you don't have the correct mindset first and foremost, BOOOOOOOBBBB
