Living Well, Fit & Healthy

Sunday, 22 July 2018According to the Laws of Nature, everything works systematically: the earth rotates daily on its own axis, the moon goes round the earth monthly, & the earth in turn revolves annually round the sun. If the planetary system were to fail, what kind of catastrophe would occur – your guess would be as good as mine.

By the same token, the train, plane, car engines & all forms of machinery work & function on the same principle of system. In this transformative age, it’s the same with the simple home computer to the super computer. Only one tiny part of the system going wrong is enough to cause chaos.

Physiologically, our human body is no different. I don’t have to be a doctor to understand this simple fact. In the field of sales, I used to instruct my sales force to abide by this golden rule: Simplicity sells, complexity repels. Another golden rule that I stressed: since God gave us two ears & one mouth, we should listen twice as much as we talk. It;s like saying you can win an argument but lose the sale.

In the case of our physical fitness & wellness, whatever the doctor says, I believe in simplicity.
This is the Life’s Formula to go by: ESS.

Let’s expand on this ESS Formula:
E means Eating well & in moderation. You are what you eat. Also Early rising with some form of daily Exercise suited to the age factor. Going further, E would mean living life with Excitement, Enthusiasm & Emotion – the three great Es.

The first letter S means Sleeping well. Just how much sleep is required is often a controversial issue. Personally, I should know my own body better than any doctor. I know when I am well & when I am not without having to consult the doctor. With all the scam about drugs & how doctors & pharmaceuticals work hand in hand in the promotion of drug usage, I stay clear & believe in natural healing. Believe you me, our mind is a powerful weapon in the healing process.

11pm to 3am    Most Blood in the LIVER
Detoxication (4 Hours). SLEEP
3am to 5am    Most Blood in the LUNGS
Breathe in Fresh Air –

5am to 7am    Most Blood in Large
7am to 9am    Most Blood in STOMACH
Breakfast – EAT WELL.

As can be seen from the above daily routine, you should SHIT WELL during the hours of 5 am to 7 am when most blood is in the large intestines. What goes in must come out – expel all the unwanted waste to stay healthy.

Your vehicle will not function if the exhaust pipe is blocked.
We are now the oldest we’ve ever been and yet, the youngest we’ll ever be again. So embrace each moment of your life, make it count, do not let go of what you’ve learned – experience is there for a reason and mistakes are part of it. Remind yourself of the wisdom you’ve gained and, as the years advance, make sure you age with grace.

Please don’t ever neglect your personal grooming. Be well groomed, look smart & clean. Put on a smiling face to attract rather to repel. The worst thing is to reek like garlic or to smell unpleasantly. Stay on your own & be financially independent. Enjoy your family members & have a good close circle of friends. Don’t ever retire . . . be up & doing. In this respect, I like Nike’s advertisement: Just Do It!


There we are, physical fitness & health all in nutshell.
