Took our city dwelling kids out exploring in the mountains the other day.
It was so interesting to watch the 2 year old in this natural environment. His eyes got wide and it was as if a new part of his brain switched on. His DNA was like, I need my clothes off and I need to sit here in this river and bang these rocks together! Instant little caveman 😂😂 He was SO into throwing stones, climbing the big rocks, and exploring the jungle.
Our DNA comes pre-programmed with all kinds of robust survival mechanisms we can tap into with the right behaviors. Eating, fasting, sleeping, sprinting, lifting, meditating, heat/cold exposure, being in nature, and bonding to other human beings are all tools we can still use in our modern world to switch on programs for anabolism, immunity, autophagy, ketogenesis, lipolysis, serotonin production, and so much more. All that wisdom is in there, we just have to find ways to let it out!!
