It’s time to stop listening to your brain and start trusting a body part that’s much lower on your body. Your gut.
A new study out of England found that we’re better off just trusting our first instinct, act first, ask questions later.
The researchers say, over-analyzing situations fogs the mind and stops people from thinking clearly.
What are ‘Gut Feelings’?
Gut feelings are mysterious signals from our gastrointestinal tract that impact our emotions and decisions. The GI tract is more than 100 times larger than the surface of the skin, and it sends more signals to the brain than any other organ system in the body.
The researchers say it’s because second-guessing leads to overanalyzing, and that just confuses our brain and stops us from thinking clearly.
