Article: Nine Things To Keep You Healthy All The Time
Copyright (c) 1994-1999 Wayne Pickering

What are these nine things that are going to keep me healthy?

I've been in 23 countries and studied a lot of people who have reached 100 years of age and, of all the people who have been ranked as the healthiest in the world, they all had certain things they did that kept them healthy.

I call them the nine biological imperatives and they form an acronym:

A... stands for ATTITUDE
The people I studied all had a reverence for their health. I've noticed when kids don't want to learn, they don't learn too much. But when they have a genuine enthusiasm for learning something ... well, they learn a heap.

I feel this is true with our health. All through my life I didn't care about my health until I lost it. Then it became my main focus. I understand now that things just don't happen, they happen justly. So, I guess there was some divine reason for my being sick for so long. I've learned that it's much easier being healthy as it's a real challenge being sick!

N... stands for NUTRITION
Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner.

There's nothing mystical about nutrition. Nutrition is a series of 4 processes that the body employs to make food for our bodies to use. Food doesn't cure or heal - our body does that. And food doesn't act, it's acted upon by the body. But it is through nutrition that we came into existence ... and it's through nutrition that we have whatever vigor we possess.

Our health corresponds precisely to the quality of our nutrition. This is true with all plant and animal life. Living organisms whenever /wherever found, with all their wonderful capacities and enjoyments, are merely the results of good nutrition and drainage.

E... stands for EXERCISE
and the main focus about exercise is to have fun and just do it!
W... stands for WATER
The people I studied stressed drinking good clean water.
S... stands for SUNSHINE
Of course, we can overdo anything. But the sunshine in small doses is excellent for good health. I try to encourage my clients to stay out of the sun between the hours of 10 A.M and 2 P.M.
T... stands for TENACITY
"You can give in and you can give out
A... stands for AIR
I've been in places where I didn't have that luxury of fresh air for periods of time. And if you talk to Captain Gerald Coffee, I'm sure he'll acknowledge the grandeur of fresh air when he was a prisoner of war in Viet Nam. As an athlete, I've learned that the person who wins in any activity is the one with the best oxygen.

Smell a rose ... blow out a candle ... Ahh, and it's still free.

R... stands for REST
All these healthy people indulged in a daily nap and good rest at night. I've learned its the fastest way to feel better. Whenever I feel a little low for whatever the reason, I try to get 1/2 hour to an hour nap during the day ... time permitting
T... (the second T) stands for TEMPERANCE (or MODERATION)
We can’t have everything in life - where in the world would we put it?
Here is another little poem:
No matter how much we acquire
Or fulfill our every desire
What good is all that wealth
When we've lost our health
And have to suffer until we expire

From Daytona Beach, Florida, this is Wayne Pickering with a motto that we're all sinners, just learn how to sin to where we don't suffer so much.... STAY WONDERFUL
