The real secret to lifelong good health is:

Let your body take care of you.

~ Deepak Chopra

 


 

I am not sure about you, but I want to stay as healthy as possible for the duration. I am guessing that if you are here, playing this game ~ you do too! Sure I want to look  good too, but my real goal is to stay healthy and promote a good “Quality of LIfe” to avoid potential suffering due to physical ailments that I could avoid with a Living Fit Lifestyle.

 

Now, we all know that there are no guarantees in life.  We have to go with the flow and make the most of our time here on planet earth. We are all given a certain set of circumstances, DNA – gene pool, family histories and life experiences. All of these components have an impact on our lives, our health and our bodies, we have to work with those realities.

 

The ‘secret’ to our lifelong good health is to follow a daily regimen of healthy habits ~ no surprise there!
