Our Most Valuable Possession

Water drop from grass

Our bodies are made of about 70% water so drink water. There is no substitute for water. I like to try and drink 1oz per pound of my body weight per day. I might go to the restroom a lot but it keeps me healthy. If you think you are hungry drink water. Many times your body is telling you it is thirsty not hungry.

Our bodies our worth millions of dollars so don’t put things into our most valuable possession, (our body) that will mess it up. I am amazed how many people use all kinds of harmful drugs, alcohol, tobacco, soda pop fast food and way too much sugar.

Avoid prolonged sun exposure. Avoid sunburns at all cost. Whenever you go out, carry your sunblock with you. It has been proven that sunburns are directly connected to skin cancer. Do not underestimate this. I got a sunburn once that was so sever it took 18 months for my burn line to go away. This was very dangerous.

Get proper sleep The average adult needs 7-9 hours of sleep a night. Sleep helps keep your heart healthy, reduces stress, improves your memory, reduce your chance of diabetes and you will live longer if you are not sleep deprived.

Take care of your friendships It has been proven that people having many friends live longer. This is probably because it reduces the amount of stress.

You don’t realize how important your health is until it is gone. Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well being, and not just the absence of disease. Many people spend their health gaining wealth, and then have to spend their wealth to regain their health.
