The Butterfly Effect?


HealthPlus Banner-Sm

The Butterfly Effect or the Butterfinger Effect?

Sometimes the smallest thing can make the biggest difference. Have you heard of the Butterfly Effect? It’s the theory that a tiny butterfly, flapping its wings in a farmer’s field in Iowa, can have drastic and far-reaching ripple effects on tidal waves and tsunamis in the Indian and Pacific Oceans. In fact, some believe, the flapping of a butterfy’s wings can actually cause the tsunami.

Modern fiction has taken the Butterfly Effect further and used it to explain how your life, and everything that happens in your life, is a result of hundreds of seemingly meaningless decisions and coincidences, and have total and irreversible consequences and control over your life. The flapping of a butterfly’s wing may seem to carry little weight, but it actually might contribute to major events.

Imagine that you could control the effects of the butterfly’s flapping wing? What if you could thoughtfully and purposely inject subtle, gentle butterfly effect type behavior into your own life? Imagine if you could introduce little things into your routine that could cause a tsunami?

You can!

Imagine the power in knowing that little things matter in a big way? Let’s start today and add “butterfly wings” to your own life that will have a dramatic and seismic impact on your health, fitness, attitude, energy, and weight. Trust me, though these things may seem small, do them, and get ready for a tidal wave.

1. Park your car in the furthest parking spot you can find. Fitness people suggest most of us take between 2,000 and 5,000 steps per day, but we should be taking 10,000 steps per day. 2,000 steps is the equivalent of 1-mile (approximately). An average person’s stride is 2 ½ feet. So your first butterfly-effect activity is simply to park far away from your office building, from the mall entrance, or the grocery store today.

2. Throw out unnecessary food. Do it. Walk into your kitchen, open a cupboard or your refrigerator, grab something you KNOW isn’t good for you, and throw it away. Actually, destroy it. Burn it, put it in your bird feeder, or fire up the garbage disposal and completely get rid of all evidence it ever existed in your house to begin with. Throw away one thing every day. As I always say, “will power is overrated.” Sure you can try and look at that tasty, fatty snack and say, “no, I WON’T eat it,” but if that were so easy, none of us would be overweight. The fool proof way of NOT eating junk food is to totally eradicate it from existence in your house. If you feel bad destroying food …donate it, but it needs to be gone. Again, this simple elimination of a temptation might seem small, but day after day, one box of cookies at a time, we’re talking about an avalanche.
