“The only way to keep your health is to eat what you don’t want, drink what you don’t like, and do what you’d rather not.” (Mark Twain)
The way we treat our bodies impacts every aspect of our lives. The right diet, exercise regimen and sleeping habits not only make the difference between running marathons at 70 vs. dying of a coronary at 40, but also between feeling like a useless bucket of phlegm vs. an energetic, “Yes I can!”- go getter today.
Ideally all of us eat, sleep and exercise right all the time, but in reality this is rarely the case. In our jobs jam-packed calendars often mean lunch is whatever we get our hands at whatever time it happens to be feasible, exercise is often forced into obscure times, and sleeping patterns vary wildly even without the bonus of jetlag. Thus it makes sense to search for simple, easily implementable solutions that don’t fight the realities of modern life, but rather adapt to them. In this section of the Handbook we will examine some of the ideas we have come across and found to be valuable.
