My golden "rules" to good health

My heart breaks each time I read or hear that some of our older crew have passed away. Recently, quite a number has gone and most were in their late fifties or sixties. It is scary just to think that someday our turn will arrived. It is inevitable that we have to die but the manner in which we die is important. Most of those who had gone suffered a lot. Some had cancer while others had strokes which made them bedridden and worst still became a huge burden to their loved ones.
The last thing anyone need is advice but I think I am somewhat qualified to advise our younger colleagues that taking good care of their health is of prime importance. You younger people may one day be old like me and so "invest" wisely in your health.
I am now in my early seventies and in good health. However, I can still "go" at anytime but as long as I am fine, I will abide by certain "rules" pertaining to good health. Perhaps the following may help:
  • Don't worry unnecessarily especially on trivial matters.
  • Interact with others. In other words be sociable.
  • Be positive.
  • Keep busy, have a hobby or two. (Blogging is therapeutic)
  • Don't over exercise like trying to do a marathon etc..don't be a John Chua, he is exceptional!
  • Walk briskly for about 15 to 30 minutes a day, 5x a week.
  • Do not eat or drink after 6pm and the next meal should be at least 16 hours later (it is known as intermittent fasting).
  • First thing when you wake up, drink 2 glasses of warm water (avoid ice cold water and drinks).
  • Drink alcohol in moderation (I am a teetotaller).
  • Drink coffee (I drink 1 to 2 cups a day).
  • Do not smoke.
  • Eat more food which contains lots of fibre.
  • Avoid process food, fast food and instant noodles which sadly is a favourite among our crew.
  • Do not sleep too much (6 to 8 hours a day is good enough).
  • Most of all believe that God loves and cares for you (His name is Jesus Christ).
Please don't take offence when I state that my God is Jesus Christ. It is a personal thing. Also, I do not force anyone to believe all the above rules that lead to good health. You may have your own rules.
