3 Things Your Ancestors Did to Stay Healthy

www.firstpeople.us
Our ancestors did a lot of things to stay healthy. That's for sure. But I want you to see only 3 things here. Do the same so you'd stay healthy, too.

1. Moved It! They moved around a lot, possibly most times of the day, to hunt for food. Imagine, they had to hike miles, run fast a lot, climb hills, mountains, trees and cliffs just to have something to eat each meal---breakfast, lunch and supper.

I'm not saying you hunt for food each meal like that as well. What I'm saying is, keep moving. Keep busy with physical activities---walk, run, jump and climb. Walk to your office and back home if it's within walking distance, or get off the bus or jeep several corners before the exact spot you should get off. Take the stairs and if possible jump 2 to 3 steps at a time.

Avoid taking conveniences when you have to go to places---don't take the elevator or escalator. Don't take pedicabs or tricycles.

Walk, walk, walk!

Don't let yourself get tied to your desk all day. Get up and visit upper floors for a while by taking the stairs. If you need to go the restroom, use the one on the upper floor. Get brisk-walking breaks now and then and walk briskly along the corridors.

Get it?

2. Ate Organic. Okay, I know organic food is costly.  What I'm saying is, eat more organic food from now on. You may not afford eating it 3 meals a day, but at least eat organic once. Our ancestors never ate anything with preservatives, food color or chemicals. Most times they ate them raw. And definitely they had no junk food, no cigarettes, no softdrinks and no beer. And as much as possible, eat fresh vegetables and fruits lots of times. Eat fresh fruit before meals.

3. Slept Early. No TV, Facebook, electronic chat, mobile phones, or DVD when our ancestors lived. I imagine how they slept at 8 pm and woke up at 4 am.

Do these 3 and you'd stay healthy (but ask your doctor about it first).

Get an idea how (funny) cavemen lived in their time:
