It's so helpful to come here and know that you get it. Munger asserts that this kind of advertising situation puts four different cognitive biases into play. The first bias is Reciprocity. This cognitive bias says that when someone performs a favor for you or extends a kindness to you, you will have the urge reciprocate, or return the favor. The second bias is Liking bias. This bias states that we like doing business with people we like, and therefore, we will conduct business interactions more often with people who are more like us. The Social Proof bias is one we've already discussed. This bias operates in part with the bandwagon bias. To recap, the social proof bias means that if we're unsure about what to do, we will look around and do whatever the rest of the group is doing. When we're not confident about our actions, we follow suit with the rest of the crowd. The commitment and consistency bias states that even if we know we're wrong, we want so badly to appear consistent to others that we will resist changing our view. your ultimate decision, you will surely benefit from eating within an hour of waking up--ideally, within half an hour. If you aren't hungry first thing in the morning, consider a breakfast smoothie containing high-quality protein and some healthy fat in the form of flaxseed or chia seeds. It's also important that each time you eat, you include some protein. Having just a piece of fruit, some carrots, or a plain salad will challenge your insulin and trigger your stress hormones. We're all under so much stress these days that I see more people than ever with blood sugar dysregulation. We all need protein! Adding protein to your snacks helps balance your blood sugar and your insulin, feed your brain, and keep you feeling calm. Including some healthy fats each time you eat will also help with insulin balance and hormone building. Like many people, Chantelle found it challenging at first to alter her mealtime rhythm.

She was used to eating only three times a day, and she considered it good for weight loss to skip a meal if she could. In those biweekly meetings, the student artists in residence bonded over experiences like what they called the Wait, you live here? Erin told of one encounter on the elevator when one of her neighbors observed that Erin was there an awful lot and that she must be very close to whomever it was she was visiting. No, Erin told the neighbor, I live here. The woman took a moment to take in the information and then, in a hushed, sympathetic tone, asked, Is there something wrong with you? Oh, no, Erin explained with a smile. I am here for you! offer arts workshops for the community. had been drawn to the SAIR program to share with elders what he had learned about the physical and emotional benefits of performance training. A severe back injury had haunted him for years until he found meditation and yoga. In his first month living in and learning about his new community at Luther Manor, Thorin shifted gears. Here's how it works in relation to the Tupperware Party. First, you get a call from your good friend Tom, who you're connected to in small but sure ways. Your kids went to elementary school together but are no longer friends. You work in the same building as his neighbor. You see each other every once in a while in the grocery store and engage in small talk for a few minutes in the dairy aisle. So, Tom calls and invites you to a Tupperware party at his house the following Saturday. The next Saturday comes and finds you in Tom's living room, sitting on Tom's couch, munching on Tom's Tupperware party snacks. The reciprocity bias starts to gnaw at you. Here is your friend, Tom, welcoming you into his home and extending this hospitality to you.

Wouldn't it be rude if you came, accepted his hospitality, and left without buying any of his products? Our bodies evolved so they could stretch resources when food was scarce, which is why much of our physiology is designed to conserve body fat. Missing or even delaying a meal cues your body to slow down your metabolism, especially if you do so frequently. You also stress your system, which raises your levels of cortisol; and cortisol, in turn, cues your body to retain fat. If, like Chantelle, you find it difficult to create a new eating rhythm for yourself, I urge you to follow my 28-day diet plan, even for a single week. Give yourself a few days to follow a regime of small, frequent meals and allow your body to get used to this new approach to food. You are likely to discover both that you feel more energized and that you're losing weight. You might have heard a lot about how genes determine many aspects of your health, your hormones, and even your personality. However, new research indicates that although we can't yet change our genes, we can affect how they express themselves. Diet, herbs, supplements, exercise, sleep, and even psychological support can all have an enormous influence on which of our genes step onto center stage and which remain quietly in the background. He noticed that many of his neighbors already had established workout routines in their fitness room, but that they talked about wanting to write. So he created a weekly writing group. His following grew slowly over time. Several weeks in, the regulars were sharing poems and short stories of their lives. Thorin, well over six foot and with long, golden brown hair pulled back into a bun, thought it might be time for him to share his own writing. So I started reading from an autobiographical piece I wrote a couple months ago. halfway through, I realized that this story was pretty R-rated, and I blushed pretty badly. He blushed again, as he told us the story at our biweekly gathering of student artists in residence. Later that spring, Thorin's theater troupe lost its venue for a performance of Richard III.

His Luther Manor friends reserved a space at the Terrace and welcomed the troupe with a full crowd. The reciprocity bias says you have to take home at least one thing from Tom's collection to pay him back for being so kind to you. But which piece of Tupperware should you buy? After your friend's presentation, you find yourself at a loss. You know you have to take home something, but nothing really jumps out at you as something you need. You're totally unsure of your decision, but you see three or four people eyeing a Tupperware set over in the corner. The social proof bias is upon you, and it says, You don't know what to buy, but those people do. That Tupperware set must have value. I'll get that one! Before you know it, you're headed home, a bag of Tupperware you probably didn't need in hand. As you pull into the driveway, a sinking feeling settles into your gut. This is amazing news! It means that even if you have a genetic predisposition to certain conditions--for example, diabetes--the right diet and lifestyle can often cue your problematic genes to remain silent so you can successfully avoid your genetic risk. Regardless of your genetic inheritance, you can have enormous power over your own health. Believe me, I know how good sugar can taste! But it is such a problematic and addictive food choice that I'd like to steer you away from it as much as possible. A little sugar probably won't hurt you now and then, but it's almost impossible to hold your sugar intake to a little sugar. For most people, eating an occasional sweet snowballs into eating the whole container. Contrary to popular belief, this is not a question of willpower. Your brain responds to sugar much the way as it does to cocaine and heroin, so it makes sense that your body feels like it can't get enough.

And, like cocaine and heroin, sugar doesn't do your body any favors! Visitors listened intently on headphones to the stories his friends had honed over their weeks together. Midway through the afternoon program, the student artists in residence gathered to share their parting words with the elders, staff, and family from the SAIR sites. Usually a powerful stage presence, Thorin struggled to get through his prepared thank-you speech without choking up. Molly was a student artist in residence for two years. In the beginning of her first year she struggled to figure out how to engage with elders. At one of our SAIR meetings, she put it this way: I'm funny, she explained, with her usual deadpan delivery. I'm a funny person. This is how my friends know me. It's how I know the world. But I don't know what's funny to an eighty-seven-year-old woman with Alzheimer's. You picture the Tupperware cabinet in your kitchen, overflowing with discolored plastic bins and stacks of mismatching red and blue lids. You don't need any more Tupperware, and yet you went to a Tupperware party and brought some more home anyway. Now whoever is on the other side of that door when you walk into the house is going to eye your new Tupperware and make fun of you for caving into the Tupperware party's schemes. As you climb out of the car, grabbing your new Tupperware friends, you start to defend yourself in your head. You're in full commitment and consistency bias mode. Maybe you can get rid of some of the old Tupperware and replace it with the new stuff. You needed new Tupperware anyway. These are high-quality containers. They'll last forever!
