Only Healthy Living



Yesterday my son-in-law's younger brother died. At age 26! APPARENTLY healthy until 14 days ago, he collapsed suddenly after three months of super-strict dieting. His death was compounded by swine flu, and the main cause of death was simply full systemic collapse.
I see so clearly that the best chance we have of sticking around in this world for a reasonable amount of time is simply HEALTHY living. Not dieting per se, but consistently exercising, eating correctly, and sleeping normally (I still am behind here, but am working on it....).
NO shortcuts. Just living healthy each and every day.
8 hours sleep.
Eating sensibly.
Not being a "computer 'potato'"
Walking and walking.
Laughing and smiling.

Loving our family as long as we are around....

Oy. Baruch dayan haemes. May Hashem comfort your family, and may you (and all of us) be able to stick to this sensible, important goal.
