Reader Beware. Question Everything.
Are journalists getting "assignments" to recommend exactly what is NOT good for our health?
Here is my response to a recent compliation of articles:
Two articles related to health recommendations that were referenced here are the exact OPPOSITE of what I consider good advice to stay healthy.
(Yes, I realize you're bringing attention to them, not necessarily endorsing them, but letting people decide. Thank you.)
My take away: life experience and listening to the sage advice of kindhearted, healthy elderly persons goes much further than the referenced articles.
I'm starting to believe these articles were "assignments" to tell people to do what's NOT good for them. How many more of these exist?
[I really am late to the game, aren’t I?]
Here's my advice:
- Everything in moderation.
- Variety is the spice of life.
- A little dirt never hurt.
- An apple a day, keeps the doctor away (... and wow isn't chicken soup just amazing!?!)
- Move it or lose it.
- The greatest things in life are free.
- Do something every day that makes you feel like you're a kid or teenager again.
- Pick your battles carefully.
- Don't make anything more complicated than it needs to be.
- Truth is the most efficient path to the exact same place.
- The more time you spend looking at yourself in the mirror or admiring others on your phone is time you take away from taking care of the most important part of self ... the inside. Physically, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually.
- Always have a back-up plan.
- Avoid "do as I say, not as I do" people.
- Never settle with "whatever" or "as long as you say so".
- Listen to your gut, but don't automatically trust it.
