We have car care, house care, job care. They are all schedules and reminders to attend to certain tasks for the needs of the car, house, job etc…etc. Yet, most of us do not have a program of personal care; a dedicated schedule -program that is in place for attending the maintenance care of our own person.
Let me explain; – as modern science has discovered-; humans were made to be active, restless, -on -the-go creatures. Such make-up, was suitable back there from the wilderness where we came from – for running in search of food, or away from animals, or chasing animals to kill and eat. Well, we still have the same make-up! We also were made to eat a lot of greens, tubers, and occasionally, a cooked animal. Our body was made up that way. It still is. And yet, the circumstances, and the life at the present time, does not require us to be on the run, or for us to be active. Furthermore, as there is available plenty of food, we tend to eat it…and then eat some more…- as I forgot to mention – along with other characteristics, our body wants to eat more and even gorge when food was available since at that time, food was very scarce. No longer. We have food aplenty. So, our body make-up, personal needs for health and sense of well being, are grossly mismatched with current realities; we wind up sitting around for hours and then we get up and eat. A little later, we again get up and eat some more. The fast food industry knows how to make it delicious with fine smell and ..fatty. We get cob-webby, overweight, with high blood pressure and cholesterol, heart attacks and diabetes II. That is when the need of a program for personal care comes in- a program that has to be a routine and be kept, day in and day out, so we can be healthy and happy of being alive. Each one of us should set up an exercise program for a half an hour, day in and day out no matter what. The same goes for our eating habits. That is very simple: eat three times a day, eat sitting down, eat very slowly, eat only what you put in front of you and always plenty of greens- boiled greens, raw greens- and fruits. Eating slowly is the most difficult part. Most of us, gulp food like a wolf at the end of a long chase over a caught deer! One more thing; try to have additional activities like a hobby on the side.
That’s all. It is so simple. Humans have plenty of intelligence. All of us; we should use it! You’ll save yourself from grief, and cob-gabbiness. And Happy New Year!
