Gut Feeling And Your Brain
How do you use your gut instincts? Do you trust your gut feelings? I hope you took my advice today and listened to your guts and either did something or didn't do something based on what your gut was telling you to do. And got you to thinking a little bit about those you know, the stories that tend to create and recreate in your life and that constantly come up. Those ones? That make you shook your head or maybe you get so frustrated because they keep on coming up.

But let's say you go pick out some potato chips, some sour cream and onion. You take that back to your desk, all the sudden you eat it. You feel, "Oh, that's great. And then about 10 minutes later you feel like you're hungry again.

I'm gonna be giving you 10 amazing facts you probably didn't know about your digestive system. Number one, that the gut is the only organ in the body that can actually function without regulatory oversight from the brain. Even your heart can't do that. Number two, there are over a hundred million brain cells located in your gut. That's actually more that's than found in the spinal cord and the peripheral nervous system.
