Know and Do

Spend a few minutes taking inventory. What do you know and what do you do? Do you know that adequate sleep is independently linked with longevity? What do you do? Do you give your brain the amount of sleep it needs? Do you know that dehydration is lethal for brain function? What do you do? Do you drink enough water (unless you have a medical condition that precludes that) to get one or two pale urines a day? Do you know that obesity is linked with more than 50 diseases including cardiovascular, type 2 diabetes, cancer and dementia? What do you do? Are you living a Longevity Lifestyle in balance that includes good nutrition, portion control, exercise, a positive mind-set and self-talk style, and so on? Learn . . . and turn information into knowledge. Practically apply your knowledge on a daily basis. When you know better, access your brain’s willpower to enable you to do better . . . If an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure (to say nothing of the pain and suffering that goes along with the cure for something that was preventable), I’m on board with prevention for whatever can be prevented.
