Bad sleep has also been linked to a higher risk of type 2 diabetes. In a study, University of Chicago researchers suppressed deep sleep in a group of healthy young adults. After just 3 nights of deep-sleep suppression, the subjects became less sensitive to insulin by an amount comparable to that caused by gaining 20 to 30 pounds. As with stress, if there were anything you could do to get a better night's sleep, you would probably be doing it. Nevertheless, at times when you can't get adequate sleep, such as when you're working long hours or traveling, you should take special care to maintain your sensitivity to insulin by exercising, avoiding high-glycemic load foods, and using your sugar-blocking skills. You must be able to recognize that you are also working hard to scrub. You must remember the way in which you move your hand forward and back, but also remember that you would have to consciously grip what you are holding onto as well. Keep in mind that you would have to also be able to change the way in which you move your arm, tensing different muscles. It would be horribly inefficient to have to consciously activate each and every one of these muscle groups and because of that, you also have your unconscious mind there to make the situation simpler for you. It controls those habits to protect you. M any other processes occur similarly. Your values, for example, are driven by deeply held beliefs that you may develop over time. These beliefs are designed to allow yourself to better understand what matters to you. You have them to help make snap judgments about the world around you. Without those automatic thoughts about your beliefs, you run into other problems as well; Epistemology is the study of the nature and scope of knowledge. It is also the type of philosophy you probably think about when you hear the word philosophy. The next three categories may be a surprise. Aesthetics is the study of the nature of beauty, art, and taste, and the creation of personal kinds of truth. Ethics is the study of the right, the good, and the valuable.

Finally, metaphysics is study of the state of being and the nature of reality. Discovering Your Human Algorithm situates between aesthetics and ethics. The target audience for the article is focused on people who are creative and spiritual, but my goals are to be inclusive. Having been an outsider to countless groups and been the recipient of their exclusion, I offer suggestions, not prescriptions. I hope to include as many people as possible. Your Body Clock and Your Blood Sugar When it comes to your health, the regularity of your sleep is as important as--and possibly more important than--the total amount you get. Many of the body's systems fluctuate rhythmically in 24-hour-long cycles including adrenaline levels, hormones, body temperature, the blood's tendency to clot, and, particularly, your body's sensitivity to insulin. Like the conductor of an orchestra, a center in your brain--the suprachiasmatic nucleus, or SCN--synchronizes all of those systems. Scientists call the coordinated cycling of various physiological systems the circadian rhythm, or body clock. Your body clock synchronizes itself to darkness and light. When you wake in the morning, light hitting your eyes activates your SCN, and your internal timer starts ticking. It makes you alert and energetic during waking hours and sleepy when it's time to rest. Of course, prehistoric humans had no lanterns or lightbulbs. Their body clocks were synchronized according to the rising and setting of the sun--they moved about during the day and slept at night. For example, imagine that you have a belief that all good dogs that you pass walking down the street deserve a good pat on the head and a treat. When you walk down the street, then, every time that you see a dog, you feel compelled to treat them in this manner. You can see this with other processes as well; Without thinking about it, you will naturally do so. This is the power of the unconscious mind.

It makes habits out of those beliefs that matter to you the most. It makes sure that, at the end of the day, you are satisfied with what you are doing. It makes sure that you can cut down on the conscious thought that you need to follow through with. You must be able to recognize that at the end of the day, your unconscious thoughts matter and if you cannot admit that, then you will run into other issues. The unconscious thoughts are those that make up your mental maps and you must be able to see that. Teammates know that everyone counts. To count Discovering Your Human Algorithm as a philosophy, I use Scott H. Young's (Ultralearning, 2019) four criteria for life philosophies. The four criteria are: survival, happiness, meaning, and independence of circumstance. Life philosophies require having sufficient basic needs such as food, shelter, and clothes. As more of these needs are met, our definition of survival can change, too. For example, having high-speed and consistent Wi-Fi is becoming a requisite for education and employment. As I write, the coronavirus is keeping much of the human population indoors yet social media is reflecting stories of humans exercising indoors, finding ways to create indoor adventures, learning online, creating humorous TikTok and YouTube videos, showing countless acts of altruism (thank you nurses, doctors, and medical care professionals), all the while learning how to improve life one moment at a time. In this article, I intentionally use the words fulfillment, meaningful, accomplishment, and purpose. Just as success is a process more than a point, happiness is goal to strive towards especially during the depths of our suffering. Now, thanks to artificial light, we don't have to abide by the cycles of the sun as most other creatures do. We can stay up at night and sleep during the day. Whenever you change your sleep schedule--say, if you're accustomed to working days, and then you start working nights--it takes several days for your body clock to adjust. Meanwhile, you're awake when your body clock thinks you should be sleeping, and when you have to sleep, it thinks you should be awake. Scientists have discovered that being out of sync with your body clock reduces your body's sensitivity to insulin.

For example, among night-shift workers, meals consumed in the middle of the night raise blood sugar more than those eaten at the usual times. Indeed, insulin resistance, obesity, and diabetes are more common in night-shift workers than in those working only day shifts. Air travel causes a similar problem: jet lag. Like workers on the night shift, travelers who cross time zones often find themselves awake when their bodies think they should be asleep, and vice versa. The main manifestations of jet lag are fits of sleepiness during the day and insomnia at night. I ncluded within the unconscious mind are actions such as your beliefs and emotions, your habitual behaviors, the values you live by, and intuition. You also must recognize that this part of your mind is also responsible for ensuring that you are kept alive. It includes your visceral, protective responses to the world around you. Imagine, for example, the ways in which you respond when you feel threatened. Imagine the ways in which you feel when you are told that you are failing or that you are betrayed. Think of those visceral gut reactions that come along when you need to protect yourself. Those, too, are the creations of your unconscious mind. Programming Yourself Programming yourself does not need to be difficult. It does not need to be something that you are worried about doing; This refrain comes from Victor Frankl's article, Man's Search for Meaning from 1984. People who are undergoing kidney dialysis treatment offer some of the best examples for the process of happiness while enduring daily suffering. Dallas, who had a kidney transplant, liked to compete in United States and World Transplant Games. his kidneys failed again. Undeterred he kept riding his bike putting in over 3,000 miles

After he flipped over his handlebars during one ride, he thought he should go a little bit easier on the bike riding in case he got the call to receive a new kidney. He put his attention toward art and a year later he began exhibiting his works. While we can experience states of happiness, they are fleeting. But what remains consistent is the dedication to the process of happiness. Life philosophies should also provide happiness. And evidence suggests that jet lag, like shift work, lowers insulin resistance. Probably the most common circadian-rhythm disturbance is a pattern of sleeping and waking that regular daytime workers often get into. During the workweek, 9-to-5'ers frequently get behind in their sleep and then sleep late on the weekend. Delaying your wake-up time by sleeping in an hour or two on weekends is enough to reset your body clock forward. Then, when it's time to go back to work on Monday, you have trouble falling asleep at night and waking up in the morning. Sleep specialists call this the delayed sleep-phase syndrome, and like jet lag, it's linked to reduced insulin sensitivity and increased after-meal blood sugar levels. The Caffeine Conundrum HERE'S A PUZZLER FOR YOU: Caffeine is known to boost adrenalin levels, which raise blood sugar. However, more than one research study has found that heavy coffee drinkers are less likely to develop diabetes. to make of this apparent contradiction? this article, we are going to look at how you can take control of that power for yourself. You are looking at the methods that you can use to ensure that you do, in fact, get the power that you are looking to obtain. All you have to do is make sure that, all things considered, you are better able to recognize the patters that you need to follow. W ithin this article, we are going to address the ways in which you can work to program yourself. Oftentimes, NLP is learned and developed with the sole intention being to take control.
