I recently read Udo Erasmus’s book, Fats that Heal, Fats that Kill. It’s a tough read at times – lots of chemistry – but I would like to pass on a couple of gems I have gleaned from it.
“Laughter is such an effective form of exercise that it has been called inner jogging.”
Since I read that, I have been conscious of allowing myself a true belly laugh whenever I get the opportunity. A simple smile just doesn’t do it. Go for it; it feels great!
Udo also talks about the necessities of a healthy life: a wholesome diet, activity, “the fun is as important as the exercise” , relaxation, rest, inner quiet and faith and trust in life.
“Faith in life is of key importance because it makes the challenges of wholesome living in a complex, often confusing, sometimes contradictory, usually hectic, and occasionally unbearably stupid, corrupt, and hateful world easier and worth the effort.”
And finally this quote from Udo, which seems to sum up what I am hoping to instil during my Walk and Talk sessions:
“A sunny disposition, inner peace, laughter, and freedom from fear, anxiety, worry, and depression” all contribute to a healthy life.
To your health.
