The Downside of Yes. Eat When You Rise (another reason).

In today’s GLP Update, we’re talking about the rarely-explored downside of being a “yes” person, and another study on why eating bigger breakfasts might help save your life.

Good Life Riff: We hear it all the time, and in fact we’ve invited people to explore the idea of saying yes to all sorts of things that, on the one hand scare them, but might also add unforeseen beauty to their lives. But, there’s a disconcerting pattern that can emerge from becoming a “yes person,” A hidden dark-side that can lead not to growth and purpose and joy, but to overwhelm and paralysis. We’re talking about this on today’s riff.

Good Life Science: And, in our Good Life Science segment, we’re diving into some fascinating new research on breakfast. In a recent Good Life Update, we shared a study on how front-loading your daily calories and accelerate weight loss, but this new study offer yet another powerful reason to embrace a true, full breakfast. Turns out, it just might save your life! And, as always, for those want to go to the source, here’s a link to the full study.
