Dieting? Mental Activity is as Important as Physical

Activity means both mental and physical activity.

Mental activity is similar to physical activity. And I am not talking about worry. That is not constructive mental activity. Wouldn't it be nice if it was? Well, it isn't. When I talk about mental activity, I am talking about creativity, using the mind creatively. It does not have to be "art," either. Creativity comes in many shapes and forms.

Doing all the upgrading and re-hardwiring of your brain to help you be slim and sexy is mental activity.

You can be a lawyer and be solving cases, figuring out creative ways to win the case. You can be an architect and use your mind to create projects. You can read books and use your mind to create pictures and connections and the "movie in your head." You can do problem solving activities, like crossword puzzles or some card and board games, anything where you are creating new thoughts, new patterns of thinking, and different ways of looking at things. This is mental activity.

Art is also a really good way to have mental activity. The process of creating abstract things also encourages new ways of thinking and patterns of thought. These new ways of thinking and being are stimulating your brain and nerves to grow and regenerate. Like the muscles in the body, if you don't use them, you lose them. So creatively using the mind helps us to grow and flourish from within.

What is the best form of mental activity? Whatever it is you will actually do. And it can be different every day. Just as with physical activity, whatever you do is perfect. It can be the same thing every day, or you can do something different every day. It is really up to you and your inner knowing.

The key is doing mental activity, creating with your mind new things, thoughts, and ways of thinking, whether it is art or how to win a legal case.
