So as we get older, our metabolism slows, right? That’s what they tell us. I don’t see it quite that way.
What is your metabolism? It’s essentially how fast your body breaks down the food you eat. We know that fitter people have faster metabolisms. And younger people. So what in God’s green earth does that mean?
It means that the people with lower mental strain have faster metabolisms. The less you blink, the faster your body churns. And the faster your body churns, the slower you age. The slower you age, the less likely you are to get basically any disease. Or die young.
Your metabolism is another symptom of your perception of time. As your metabolism slows, your aging process accelerates. The beauty of all of it is that you control it. The decisions you make day in and day out determine this.
Proven ways to slow down your metabolism and age faster: drink, smoke, get fat. The others we have proven over several different posts: caffeine, SSRI’s, and glasses. If this sounds like crazy talk to you, you need to go back and do some reading.
But if you’re like everyone else, you’re not looking for the fastest way six feet under. You’re looking for a fountain of youth. You’re probably looking for a time machine, but you’d settle for a fountain of youth. You’d settle just to stay where you are. So would I.
What if I told you that I thought that was possible? We’ve proven that there is only one brain disease, and it’s curable. We’ve proven that aging starts in the brain. We’ve shown that athletes age much slower. They hit menopause later. They blink less. [this matters]. They don’t get cancer. They don’t lose their minds.
Fuel your body the way it was designed to be fueled. And go out and change the world.
Aging happens when you throw in the towel. Find something you’re passionate about. Find something to fight for. And pursue it with wreckless abandon. That’s your only hope.
