PMR Episode 220 Feature Image


One of the idiosyncrasies of the human brain is that it's hardwired to put things into boxes. Not literal boxes necessarily, but figurative boxes. Just think, if you see a person walking past you on the street, you immediately, reflexively, and instinctively categorize them based on qualities like age, gender, skin color, clothing, and attractiveness. From these generalizations, we then extrapolate even further, projecting our own prejudices onto the other person in the form of our expectations about their intelligence, socioeconomic status, and character. In responding to this feature of our primate brains, we can either deny that we do this, or we can actively override our instincts. Doing this takes energy, but it is in this act that we exemplify our humanity.

One person who constantly works to break down boxes, whether it is in the business world or in the gym, is Liz Nierzwicki. Liz is the owner of Solace Yoga Studios. She is an online fitness entrepreneur and the author of the new book, "Happy Healthy Fit: Transform Your Life In 90-Days With The figureFIT! Lifestyle Program".
