Have you ever noticed that all your good intentions about eating only healthy and natural foods tend to walk out the door just as you walk into your parent’s or other family member’s home? Or how insanely hard it is to not eat the junk food your sweetheart puts on the table in front of you? We are used to thinking of this as a lack of willpower, but the good (and bad) news is that it might be more to it than that. It actually might be one of our primal instincts taking over the show, and causing us to self-sabotage at that crucial moment.
Have you ever wondered why there always seem to be something bad happening whenever things start looking good in your life? I know I have, on more than one occasion. You get a big amount of money, and you are starting to plan the vacation of your dreams – and BOOM, you get into a freak accident with the car, and are left with a bill almost as big as your pay check. There goes the vacation! Or you have met the man of your dreams, you connect deeper than you ever thought possible… and then you all of a sudden end up fighting over something absurdly silly.
