Why Emotional Health is More Important than Working Out
I had a grandpa who lived a hundred plus without suffering serious ailments. And at 100 years old he still actively worked in the farm carrying 50-kilo sacks of rice. At the same age he was accidentally hit by a jeep and still lived without injury.

Did he workout? Nope. He just did farm and carpentry works regularly and walked long distances a lot (transportation was not readily available in their countryside village). And he ate lots of fresh vegetables.

Most of all, I knew him to be a simple, kind, happy, easy-going and friendly farmer. Whenever he was around our house when I was a kid, I would always enjoy Lolo Siso's radiant smile and friendliness, telling me stories with his soft-spoken, gentle voice. I especially enjoyed this when he took off his dentures. He was very easily likable.

If you want a personality like that---easily likable to people (even difficult people), you may want to know some secrets here in this e-book. Just click the image for details.

I know a lot of guys who work out in gyms and yet suffer emotional problems. And then they wonder why they have abnormal uric acid levels, cholesterol levels and sometimes even blood pressure. And some of them have died at a young age.

Emotional health plus your regular moving around routine are really enough to stay healthy and happy. And that's the point of being fit---to stay healthy and happy, not really to display muscles, although that's a bonus.

But there are also others who have regular moving-around routine but are never emotionally healthy. You'd see how they are sickly, as well. Why? Because over stress plus physical activities equal to exhaustion. And exhaustion is nothing but accumulation of stress---which is dangerous to health. Free radicals will just keep wrecking your health.

There's a world of a difference between walking fast while just enjoying the scenery around (not hurrying up for anything), and walking fast because you don't want to be late for an appointment or always hurrying up for something. The first is good for health, the other is disastrous. Your emotional condition matters a lot to your physical health.

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…

How Posture Affects Your Confidence Level

Try it. Make it a habit to stand erect---chest out, stomach in---and make sure you look relaxed and natural doing it. No hint of struggling. How? Well, keep practicing this posture.

And then always lift your chin and look straight ahead with relaxed, rested eyes. Even if you don't feel confident inside, that look will make people think you have it. That look and posture often earn you respect.

Now, when you see people awed at you because they think you have powerful self confidence---when in fact you don't---you begin to feel confident. It builds up like a miracle.

I tried it once. I used to stand up with stooping shoulders and often looking down at the floor. Then one time I saw how it looked in a mirror. Such a look of defeat and weakness. Then I wondered---does good posture really make a difference?

So I started practicing good posture. I studied how to stand, sit and walk erect, like a real model. I watched how models moved and imitated them. Together with my regular work…

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&#…
