ON HEALTH AND OTHER MATTERS

health

I began to interview in earnest those I considered as healthy persons (and lift interesting statements from references too), especially from those who have reached an advanced age—the so called survivors.  Their insights may give me something to think and tinker about; and it might be a nice piece of advice worth sharing.  Here are my notes and quotes.

 

  1. “Eat not to get full but merely to bite a piece to ease hunger.”
  2. “Greet the day by looking straight (with eyes closed of course) on the early morning sun rise.  After taking several deep breath and a few stretches, the power of the sun would settle into our system already.  And that signals a good start.”
  3. “An early morning cleansing of the intestine must be a regular ritual if one is to kick toxins off from the body for the day.”
  4. “A good laugh in a day is equal to a week of balanced diet.”
  5. “Mellow or classical music sets the tone for the day and inspires appetite.”
  6. “Feeling hungry is better than feeling full.”
  7. “A good night sleep is more exciting than a night of merriment.”
  8. “Evade talks pertaining negative matters, it merely attracts sickness.”
  9. “Don’t get angry at anyone, just pity them.”
  10. “Feeling low or in pain?  Sing a song.”
  11. “Acquire the habit of Thinking and everything will follow.”
  12. “A ripened papaya smoothen skin once it is applied accordingly.”
  13. “Walk, don’t run. Breath slowly, don’t huff.”
  14. “Eat fruits.  Our teeth and innards are designed by nature to munch and digest it properly.”
  15. “Our stomach appreciates fruits.  But when we eat meat, our stomach cannot distinguish it from cardboard!”
  16. “The greatest wealth is Health.”
  17. “To insure good health: eat lightly, breathe deeply, live moderately, cultivate cheerfulness, and maintain an interest in life.”
  18. “A good laugh and a long sleep are the best cures in the doctor’s book.”
  19. “Keep the pineal gland operating
    and you won’t grow old—you will
    always be young.”  (Note:  The pineal gland is situated in the inner side of the brain and protected from all sides from any jarring or injuries .It is like an hourglass of our body.)
  20. “Wine is the most healthful and most hygienic of beverages.”
    ― Louis Pasteur
  21. “When health is absent, wisdom cannot reveal itself, art cannot manifest, strength cannot fight, wealth becomes useless, and intelligence cannot be applied.”
  22. “Health is the greatest possession. Contentment is the greatest treasure. Confidence is the greatest friend.”
    ― Lao Tzu
  23. A little chocolate a day keeps the doctor at bay”
  24. “When our emotional health is in a bad state, so is our level of self-esteem. We have to slow down and deal with what is troubling us (EITHER BY READING, WRITING OR SINGING), so that we can enjoy the simple joy of being happy and at peace with ourselves.”
  25. The true Losers in Life, are not those who Try and Fail, but those who Fail to Try.”
  26. Your brain is the command and control center of your body. If you want a better
    body, the first place to ALWAYS start is by having a better brain.”

 

THIS IS WHY I WANTED TO SHARE THIS PIECE SO THAT IF WE HAVE A BETTER BRAIN, WE CAN TRAIN IT FURTHER TO BE AT ITS BEST FOR OUR HEALTH.
