“Attention to one’s lifestyle, especially in the direction of reducing emotional tensions, a modest but regular program of daily exercise, a diet low in salt and sugar and reasonably free of fatty meats and fried foods, and plenty of good drinking water–all these are useful and indeed essential.” – Norman Cousins
I like it when people stress the small, seemingly minor details of life. Their reminders help to keep us aware of just how important it is to maintain our health in an active way. It does take work to do so, and it is necessary to pay attention to what we eat and how often we eat. The amount of work need not be so high, though, as long as we’re consistent in taking care of our health.
