Fort Worth Personal Trainers: A Neuroscientist Reveal the MOST Important Weight Loss Choice You Can Make
Hope you’re having a great day!
One thing we really focus on in our program is the WHO really matters.
Meaning the WHO you workout with and surround yourself with over, time will have a BIG impact on your results.
It’s actually the 4th Pillar in the Body Firm System providing the Knowledge, Support, and Accountability you need.
I came across some interesting research that not only proves that getting around “like minded” people matters.
It takes the phrase “Like minded” to the next level.
According to Moran Cerf, a neuroscientist at Northwestern University who has been studying decision-making for over a decade.
The surest way to maximize happiness has nothing to do with experiences, material goods, or personal philosophy.
It’s all about who you decide to spend time with. But “it’s not just advice to choose your friends carefully,” Cerf said.
There are two premises that lead Cerf to believe personal company is the most important factor for long-term satisfaction.
The first is that decision-making is tiring.
A great deal of research has found that humans have a limited amount of mental energy to devote to making choices. Picking our clothes, where to eat, what to eat when we get there, what music to listen to, whether it should actually be a podcast, and what to do in our free time all demand our brains to exert that energy on a daily basis.
The second premise is that humans falsely believe they are in full control of their happiness by making those choices.
So long as we make the right choices, the thinking goes, we’ll put ourselves on a path toward life satisfaction.
Cerf rejects that idea. The truth is, decision-making is fraught with biases that cloud our judgment.
People misremember bad experiences as good, and vice versa; they let their emotions turn a rational choice into an irrational one; and they use social cues, even subconsciously, to make choices they’d otherwise avoid.
But as Cerf tells his students, that last factor can be harnessed for good.
His neuroscience research has found that when two people are in each other’s company, their brain waves will begin to look nearly identical.
One study of moviegoers, for instance, found the most engaging trailers all produced similar patterns in people’s brains.
“The more we study engagement, we see time and again that just being next to certain people actually aligns your brain with them,” based on their mannerisms, the smell of the room, the noise level, and many other factors, Cerf said.
“This means the people you hang out with actually have an impact on your engagement with reality beyond what you can explain.
And one of the effects is you become alike.”
Read that again…
You BECOME like those people you are around.
Good or bad.
Healthy or unhealthy.
Friendly or unfriendly.
Lean or overweight.
And as this research shows it happens on a deeper unconscious level that we are not even aware of.
So you need to be cognizant of who you’re around.
That’s why “trying it on my own” has such a staggeringly high failure rate.
If you’re attempting to change your habits and you’re only around people that are overweight, don’t work out, eat from the drive thru and don’t value their quality of life.
You’re going to struggle.
If you want to drop weight you need to get around other people who value eating healthier and exercising regularly.
The WHO you’re around matters most.
P.s. If you’re tired of being tired, want to drop weight, feel better and get your confidence back in a short amount of time we can help.
