from AARP Bulletin  December 28, 2011

Invest 5% of your time in keeping your health.  You won’t have to invest 100% later in regaining your health.

The above is my paraphrase of the wisdom of Dr George W. Calver, hired in 1928 as the first US Congress’s first appointed doctor.

                    Here are his 10 Health Commandments:

Eat wisely

Drink plentifully (of water)

Eliminate thoroughly

Bathe cleanly

Exercise rationally

Accept the inevitables (don’t worry)

Play enthusiastically

Relax completely

Sleep sufficiently

Check up occasionally

                            My Take on Dr Calver:  I’ve met a soul mate.
