Mental Strength: For those of you who have completed the paleo challenge, consider your mental fortitude to have been raised 10 fold. Fighting perpetual cravings the first few weeks, planning meals in advance, food prepping for the week, and taking ridicule from your work associates only begin to scratch the surface of what has sharpened your mind into the Excalibur that it is today. You may not have realized it, but it there have been some drastic changes underneath that thinkin’ cap of yours over the past 3 months. Continue these mental exercises until all these things are considered second nature and anything otherwise would be considered contrary to your preferred way of life.

Continue your Paleo Reserves: Learn, read, and discuss. There are plenty of good books out there to continue your ongoing education of this lifestyle. Become an ambassador of the Paleo life by saturating your skull with knowledge so you can make believers of your own! Immerse yourself in Paleo literature to continue to put this on the forefront of your mind. If you don’t have the time to go cover-to-cover, find a Paleo-friendly blog or download some of Robb Wolf’s podcasts to listen to and from the gym or work.

Mental Health is Directly Related to Diet: It’s obvious that our minds work better if our body is functioning at maximal capacity; therefore staying steadfast in Paleo-like diet will contribute to our mental welfare. It’s commonly unknown that research emphasizes the underlying role of inflammation as a cause for both depression itself and the neurodegenerative symptoms seen in those that claim depression. For a good article, see here. Inflammation on Paleo? I don’t think so…

Some Paleo food for thought, Ktowners.

    Good tips CBo! If the body changes and metcon times aren’t enough to keep you living paleo then maybe all the diseases you can fight off will be…like depression. Who knew? I did, but did you?
