Weird thing I noticed today as I was driving... and listening to political talk radio. I would always listen to either sports talk or music (and will still do that) but felt today like I wanted to know a little more about what's going on. I hate politics and think it's all BS, but still I had an ambition to really learn.
I also am starting to get back into paying attention to stock and options trading and just generally am interested in learning all the time instead of watching Family Guy re-runs while I chug a few beers. Anyone else noticing this? It's gotta have to do with switching back to paleo a few weeks ago... every other good change seems to stem from it :-)
Paleo has made me really interested in evolutionary anthropology, so I've been doing a ton of research over the last year or so on the cavemen, ice age, dawn of agriculture, evolution in general... hell, even dinosaurs!
Oh, and nutrition, of course. Give me a good nutrition book, and I'm good to go!
I was already going back to grad school to work towards a Masters but I've recently decided to go back for a PhD instead. Now I'm not saying it's completely related to being Paleo for the last few months...but I'm also not discounting the fact that the two could be related. I do find it easier to organize my thoughts and do some decent writing now that I'm eating clean.
Maybe a bit unrelated, but IF has definitely improved my concentration and focus.
Every time I visit PH I learn something new. Going paleo has really ignited my curiosity about things that I've never considered before.
