HOW THE ICE CUBE PRINCIPLE CAN KEEP YOUR HEALTH IMPROVEMENT ON TRACK
There’s a lot of excitement when we start a new approach to improving our health. Perhaps we go on a new diet, start a new supplement, start meditating, exercising, cold showers . . .
But unfortunately as most of us have learned, without a plan, it’s hard to know what’s going to be helpful. How do we know if this new exercise program is even the right thing for you to be doing?
What adds to this confusion is that often even the right activities, the ones that are going to push the needle the most in positive direction, can have delayed effects.
The current state of our body’s is the sum total of all the things we’ve physically and mentally experienced up to this point. So even with a sound strategy, there can be a time lag between when the new habit is started and when it bears fruit.

Because latent potential can take time to be unlocked “overnight” it’s important to have key sign posts along the way to let us know we’re on the right track.
