LIV­ING LIFE IN THE FAST LANE – THE SIDE EF­FECTS

Friday - - Your Life -

Not sleep­ing enough. Fa­tigue has led to se­ri­ous dis­as­ters in the work­place as well as in homes.

Neg­a­tive im­pact on fam­ily life. Spend­ing more time deal­ing with email, for ex­am­ple, as op­posed to play­ing with chil­dren.

In our haste, we feed our­selves badly, and suf­fer the con­se­quences. Obe­sity rates are rock­et­ing, in part be­cause we eat fast, pro­cessed food packed with sugar and fat. Eat­ing at a gen­tle pace is also good for the waist­line, be­cause it gives the stom­ach time to tell the brain that it is full. It takes about 15 min­utes for the brain to reg­is­ter that you have eaten too much, and if you eat too quickly, that sig­nal comes too late. You have al­ready eaten more by then.
