It seems basic enough–eat well, exercise, recharge and you’ll feel good, perform well. So I have to ask myself–why don’t I do more of this?
Taking the example of diet, I think it comes down to this: if I eat well and then I feel well, I probably won’t notice. But if I eat poorly, usually won’t impact me right away–it takes a few hours, and by then I’m much less likely to link how I feel to what I ate. And if my eating habits go downhill, it may take a few weeks for the full impact of that to hit me. Thus the connection between diet and performance can be hard to realize.
With this talk, I present some of the research that I found that shows the benefits of these basics. My hope is that by having this research in mind, I’ll be more likely to do these things, and as a result feel good and perform well.
