Welcome to Changing Perceptions, Course 1 of Timeless You. You will learn how changing three things—the way you view yourself, the way you view time, and the way you view your body—can make you feel energized, healthier, and younger.
Let's get started!
To begin, first recognize an important building block to this program: you have been living inside a prison with no walls. This prison, which I call the prison of conditioning, comes from your mind. It consists of all the things you have been taught to believe about aging and the aging process, but aren't necessarily so.
Watch this video:
As you just heard, if a rope is tied around a baby elephant’s leg and attached to a stake in the ground, the animal learns it can move only within very narrow limits. Years later, the adult elephant remains within those limits when its leg is staked, even though it has the strength to uproot an entire tree.
Like the elephant, most people think and act within the limitations of what they have learned during childhood. For generations, we have been conditioned to believe that aging means progressive decline. But scientific studies suggest that aging and decline don't have to go together. A recent study from Oregon State University, for example, found that nutrition and exercise could slow or prevent cognitive decline. The National Institute on Aging supports similar findings. However, before we talk about the alternative to decline, let's first talk more about the prison of conditioning.
