Easy Secret to Live Longer and More Meaningful

www.thechangeblog.com
Lots and lots of people ask me one vital tip to a longer, more meaningful life. Many others obviously need the tip but are hopelessly entangled in the complications of life--and yet not know it.

After examining things and having tried a lot of lifestyles in my hectic but meaningless life before, I learned one thing--keep things simple. There's so much wisdom in that. Yet, so few get it. They think busyness is the way to go--because it looks smart and productive.

Yet.in fact, the whole point of life  is to keep things in their simplest possible form. That's the secret to a full and meaningful healthy life that has power for a long life.

Well, it's not a guarantee that you'd live to a full ripe age of say 90 or a hundred. But even if you die young, you'd feel having lived a long, full and satisfactory life if you had kept things simple.

How do I know that? Have I experienced dying young?

Nope, but Jesus have. He died at 33 but lived a full, meaningful and healthy life--in fact a "long" life, as it were, because He is the LIFE.

It's an epidemic--so many people launch out to a very busy life and think that's what makes a life. They intently make their daily schedules hectic and everything complicated and feel productive when they are dead tired at the end of the day. They love it that way and believe they are getting the meaning in life.

But later, they end up miserable with empty achievements, sad, and finding out too late that they have wasted their time and energies for nothing. A lot of them find themselves bound to their sick beds in old age, reaping the results of a stressful life. Worse, some of them don't realize to the end what they really missed.

You want a well lived and happy life with your loved ones? Keep things simple. That's one of the topics I discussed in my upcoming e-book, "My Secrets to Cheap, Simple, and Safe Fitness Easy to Keep Up With" (Exercises You Can Do Anywhere).

Harvard Study Says Chicken Skin is Healthy!

You used to take off chicken skin because doctors and nutritionists said it's bad for your heart. So, with broken hearts we did so, stripping the golden brown and juicy skin from our roasted or grilled chicken and couldn't believe we were actually throwing away all that goodness into the trash.

And we wondered why God made chicken skin so delicious just so we could throw it all away.

But a new Harvard study says chicken skin is actually good for your health---to be specific, your heart health. It says most of the fatty part of chicken skin (the most mouthwatering one) is unsaturated and healthy for the heart. And that's according to studies done by the Harvard School of Public Health, no less.

Unsaturated fat can lower your cholesterol and blood pressure, the Harvard school said, according to an article on The Daily Meal site titled "Doctor's Got It All Wrong!" So, if the study is correct (I'm waiting for another "study" to contradict this---al…

Both Laziness and Busyness Make You Fat?

Well, it's a combination of laziness, busyness and technology. In your laziness you relegate all chores to technology in the guise of busyness. Instead of manually washing your clothes, for instance, you buy a washing machine because you say you are too busy to do it yourself.

When I was in high school and college, not only did I do manual laundry, I also used an old-fashioned water pump for it. Since we had the water pump in the backyard, my dad said using it instead of turning on the faucet would save us lots of money on our water bill. So I did that for years. No wonder I didn't get fat even if I ate a lot.



Metabolism? Well, it helped some, but I also got easily overweight when I ate too much. There was a time when I gained weight so that my face doubled in size (no, I think it tripled). It was the time when I did nothing but man our small retail store where I ate most of the food items being sold.

Here's another example. You use the elevator or escalator even if you&#…

Do You Know the Right Way of Eating Fruits 2

Previously on Right Way of Eating Fruits

Another mistake people do when eating fruits is eating them long after peeling their skin. Not many people know this, but all fresh fruits are alkaline, even soir ones. I met one "nutritionist" who thought sour fruits were all purely acidic---just because they were sour.

Take kalamansi for instance. Fresh kalamansi is alkaline. Those who know herbal medicine know this. But make sure you consume it right after slicing it open. If you let it lie open like that for a long time it becomes acidic. Moreover, the Vitamin C in it quickly evaporates. You get nothing but sourness.

So those fruit juices sold in bottles in grocries and malls? You get nothing from them except water, flavor, sugar and synthetic Vitamin C perhaps, which is acidic. If you want to keep fit, an acidic tummy is the last thing you'd want.
