Alive and kicking

I just watched a really good show on HBO about heart disease.
Amazingly, in spite of all our good luck here in the USA with an overabundance of good food, good health care, access to clean water, and digital devices, obesity is killing people and that really is the heart of the matter.

Sadly, the people who are most prone to being obese are those who are economically challenged, namely the poor. Nevertheless, there are many folks who look like, heart attacks waiting to happen, among the upper crust as well.

We see this all around us and it is epidemic. The most horrible fact is that the problem is getting worse.

The question is, with all this cardiopulmonary disease sitting like a time-bomb ready to explode in these many obese bodies, is there anything to stem the tide?

Obviously, eating less and moving more to lose excess weight off the belly is a start.

Too bad it takes a tragedy for people to wake up to reality about obesity and heart disease.

You may come from an abundant country with lots of food tempting you every which way, but don’t let that be your excuse. If you want to live without regrets, then the time to act is now before it’s too late.

Follow the following three rules in addition to weight loss:

  1. Avoid alcohol
  2. Don’t smoke
  3. Don’t sit for longer than 50 minutes at a time.

Much of the heart disease today is preventable in America.

If you want to be successful and live a long life you have to take personal responsibility. You might be a lone voice in the wilderness of obesity, but after they’re gone you’ll still be here alive and kicking!

Inspiration found through Information

A little walk, a little sit, a little sip, can inspire a great idea!

Walking often yields my inspiration, but so does surfing online.

If you’re looking to be creative, walking certainly makes a difference. You don’t even have to walk very far, just four or five blocks will suffice. It’s an opportunity which affords the brain to formulate an idea.

Right now I’m enjoying my Teavana Earl Grey creme, and reflecting on recent thoughts.

I think we live in a society where we are often drained of our inspiration by people, politics, and events.

I look back on some of my blog posts and the things I’ve published. Sometimes I scratch my head and wonder what I was nattering on about. I must admit some of my earlier posts were pretty rough. Some of them even seemed nonsensical and scattered.

Nevertheless, some of of my WordPress posts were truly inspired. Especially those based on real-life experience. There are lessons to be learned every day.

From personal experience we can glean not only punishment but precious rewards.

Learning from personal experience is one of the the harshest ways to learn, but maybe that’s why the lesson sticks.

However, I do find inspiration and consolation in some of my previous blog posts, and the blog posts of others.
