It took me 44 years but I finally figured it out…
They say wisdom comes with time and at the ripe young age of 44 I figured out the three essential elements for health and homeostasis. What I have figured out is this, for longevity of life you need a good night’s rest, good stimulation, and good eating habits.
Our bodies need the proper amount of rest in order to rejuvenate and recuperate from all the taxes of the day. While we sleep, our bodies naturally attempt to repair themselves. Sleeping is like plugging your cell phone into its charger, while it’s charging and not being used it’s gaining its power back; our bodies are the same way. I think that is pretty cool.
As for stimulation, it’s all about the blood. Our blood carries our oxygen and everything else that each organ needs to perform and perform well. The blood flow process allows the body to defend against infection as well. There are a number of ways to be stimulated. Think of anything that gets the blood pumping that isn’t stressful and you are on the right track. Good stimulation can be anything from exercise, to massage to laughter to sex.
Good eating habits, well that is pretty self-explanatory. The more fruits, nuts, and vegetables the better, the less fried the better, less additives and preservatives the better. You can’t go wrong with natural sweeteners. You can go very wrong with fast food. White ain’t right and brown can stick around…I’m still talking about food by the way. White as in white flower, sugar and rice are indications of bleaching and not pure. Brown would be the opposite. Water is the best detox out there, drinking plenty of it will help the body to flush the impurities out.
So now that my wisdom has kicked in, I realize in order for me to truly be wise I must put into practice what I know, otherwise it’s just knowledge. What have you finally figured out, perhaps you can add to my wisdom, do share!
