Enrich Your Mind
Not food again, but knowledge.
You need to keep growing, to keep learning new things and expand your mind. Reading books (especially before bed as it helps you sleep better), listening to spoken books on motivational sportspeople, listening to podcasts on nutrition, watching educational clips on youtube and helping others cook (for example) are all great ways to learn new skills and grow your mind’s capacity.
Please listen to this podcast carefully. Simply click on this Grain Brain to listen. It is an interview with David Perlmutter, MD, a neurosurgeon whose father (also a neurosurgeon) has Alzheimer’s.
Please listen to Primed for your Life being featured on That Paleo Show #121 with Chad Davis and Reujen Lista talking about the Primed Lifestyle.
Challenge Your Mind
Perhaps a little similar to enrich your mind but here it is more along the lines of trying something new, exciting and challenging.
Examples could be traveling to a foreign country for a hiking holiday, doing a trail run for the first time (like the team from Mt. Labo – pictured below – will soon experience) or rock climbing.
The beauty of these activities is that they are usually performed outdoors so sun exposure can help keep your levels of Vitamin D where they need to be for healthy brain function.
Doing crossword puzzles or playing board games that get you thinking are also other ways to challenge your mind. Television is generally a passive activity that does little to enhance your brain function.
Better to do some fun learning activities with family, friends and colleagues.
“I find television very educational. Every time someone switches it on I go into another room and read a good book.” – Groucho Marx (same applies to internet right?)
“The more you use your brain, the more brain you will have to use” – George A. Dorsey

Rest Your Mind
Sleep is not only essential for regenerating your physical body, but it is imperative for reaching new mental insights and being able to see new creative solutions to old problems. Sleep is also known to enhance your memories and help you “practice” and improve your performance of challenging skills. In fact, a single night of sleeping only four to six hours has been proven to impact your ability to think clearly the next day.
What factors help you sleep? Get more sunshine…..have a bed time….. less TV…. This is an ESSENTIAL aspect of the Primed Lifestyle. I start thinking of my sleep that night as soon as I wake up.
Super proud of both my darlings this morning. Lauren and I had so much fun running in the @soleus_running Dance Fest with William Flores. We both ran in a fasted state with a steady pace that was a little faster at the end.
I am also proud of Christian for deciding at 4am that he needed more sleep. Nothing is more important than quality sleep. All the magic happens in your body and brain while you sleep. Sleep is the key to longevity. Everything about the Primed Lifestyle revolves around sleep.

Nourish Your Mind:
Yes, your mind needs the right fuel and needs your body to be hydrated, but your mind needs more than that to flourish. Really nourish your mind and soul by donating your time or money to helping others. Or it can even be as simple as REALLY listening to your loved ones properly, smiling more and seeking ways to help those around you in simple ways.
I personally try and perform Acts of Random Acts of Kindness whenever and wherever possible.
With my mate Bhong who looks better in my running gear than I do!! Read Bhong’s Primed journey here.

Hydrate Your Body for your Brain
Once you are eating and enjoying fresh Primed produce that contain high levels of vitamins and minerals required for a healthy mind then you must drink enough water.
This is essential for a healthy life. Even more so if you live in the tropics and get lots of GREAT sunshine on your skin like I do (and you should).
Water does not mean garbage Sugarade drinks, fruit juice, soda etc. It means the best quality water you can afford.
Buy and drink the best quality water you can afford.
