The subconscious mind directs over 90% of our behavior. We learn how to walk and eat and talk with our conscious mind. Once behaviors are automatic, they come under the power of subconscious mind, unless you choose to control them consciously. Because the process of learning is linked with safety and survival, your subconscious rewards it with a dose of pleasurable chemicals so you repeat the behavior. Indulging in life's pleasures, especially when related to survival, such as eating, are also rewarded biochemically. This is often a double-edged sword when trying to change undesirable programming, which your SCM keeps rewarding you for repeating. Connecting the 3 brains of our mind, heart and gut brings wellness back into balance. I've posted this google slide I use to teach about my wellness journey. You can watch it here.
