Which inner dog are you feeding?
Feed your way to happiness and fat loss.
Without judgement, observe the next 3 strangers you come in contact with. Remember that many of us are fighting private battles no-one knows about.
What movie is that person playing in their head? A dark sad movie? Or an inspiring epic adventure? Observing other people allows us to step out of our cognitive biases about ourselves.
