The rules of survival never change, whether you’re in a desert or in an arena.


Hello Followers,

Who is ready for more interesting concepts of living a more quality of life?

The healthiest and longest-lived people in the world are accepted generally to be the Hunzas of northern Pakistan and the people in the Caucasus of Russia, whereas the shortest-lived are the Eskimos and Lapplanders of the Arctic.

Sir Robert McCarrison, Major General, Indian Medical Service, described the Hunzas thus;

The diet of these people corresponds in many ways to that of the Sikhs; but they eat less meat and their stocks being limited to goats,

Their consumption of milk and milk products is less than that of the Sikhs.

But they are great fruit-eaters, especially of apricots and mulberries.

This they use in both the raw and sun-dried state.

The power of endurance of these people is extraordinary, to see a man of this race throw off his

scanty garments.

Revealing a figure which would delight the eye of a Rodin and plunge into a glacier-fed river in the middle of winter with as much unconcern as many of us would take a tepid bath.

This to realize that perfection of physique and great physical endurance are attainable on the simplest of foods, providing these be of the right kind.

These people are long-lived and vigorous in old age.

Among them, the ailments so common in our own people, such as gastro-intestinal disorders, colitis, gastro and duodenal ulcer and cancer are extraordinarily uncommon.

And there is no doubt that their freedom from these scourges of modern civilization is due to

three things;

1. Their use of simple, natural foodstuffs of the right kind

2. Their vigorous outdoor life

3. Their fine bracing climate.

AUGUST – 21st, Dan and I thought on continuing this segment with the series with some fun; What is it about August that’s so significant during this month?

National Senior Citizens Day – August 21, 2022

I’m sharing this holiday for Dan and I are Senior Citizens.

I guess we are now considered elderly!

That is our bodies, not our minds.

Do you have an elderly person in your life that you love and appreciate?

National Senior Citizens Day, is the day to let them know how much you care and it’s an opportunity to recognize their accomplishments.

In 1988, President Ronald Reagan proclaimed this holiday to raise awareness about issues that affect senior citizens and their quality of life.

Today, seniors are still active in their communities as well as continuing to have a strong presence in the workforce.

For all they do and have achieved for the good of their communities, senior citizens deserve our thanks!

National Senior Citizens Day recognizes seniors who have spent their lives contributing to society and have impacted everyone’s lives for the better.

Improved healthcare has changed demographics and increased productivity of older citizens, allowing them to be more active than ever before.

With more opportunities available as well, many senior citizens now begin second careers and are an example for younger generations.

The country’s foundation and stable sectors are the result of the hard work of our senior citizens and they deserve all our gratitude.

President Ronald Reagan took the initiative to honor seniors in 1988 when he signed Proclamation 5847 and marked August 21 as the day seniors will be celebrated.

Throughout our history, older people have achieved much for our families, our communities, and our country.

That remains true today, and gives us ample reason this year to reserve a special day in honor of the senior citizens who mean so much to our land, Reagan proclaimed.

For all they have achieved throughout life and for all they continue to accomplish, we owe older citizens our thanks and a heartfelt salute.

We can best demonstrate our gratitude and esteem by making sure that our communities are good places in which to mature and grow older.

These places in which older people can participate to the fullest and can find the encouragement, acceptance, assistance and services they need to continue to lead lives of independence and dignity.

His words have withstood the test of time and are now, over 30 years later more important than ever as older people are leading more productive lives.

Reagan himself set an example for everyone; he was 69 years old when one of the world’s most powerful titles of president of the U.S. was given to him on January 20, 1981.

Reagan lived till the ripe old age of 93, and not only was he the oldest person to be elected president, he was also the oldest when his term ended at 77 years and 349 days.

According to the U.S. Census Bureau, approximately 78 million people aged 65 and older will reside in America by 2035.

This figure will surpass the number of the population under the age of 18 for the first time in the nation’s history.

Time is precious and is priceless, so Dan and I will continue each day to pull from a box of 365 inspirational quotes; one quote and share with you.

Today is:



It takes but one positive thought when given a chance to survive and thrive to overpower an entire army of negative thoughts.

Indeed, if memory helps us to survive, forgetting allows us to go on living.

First things first. I hate to spoil the ending but you’re going to make it.

Sustainability is the key to our survival on this planet and will also determine success on all levels.

Your biggest fears are completely dependent on you for their survival.

We do not live to think, but, on the contrary, we think in order that we may succeed in surviving.

People will do amazing things to ensure their survival.

Continuing from last year the series on LIVING SUCCESSFULLY WITH SCREWED-UP PEOPLE, by Elizabeth B. Brown.

Dan and I continue to share ways to benefit and help keep one’s health cells healthy.

A wise man told me ten years ago, when one is in balance with themselves; one stays healthy.

CHAPTER 19; DANCING WITH PORCUPINES (last chapter of the book)


Figuring ways to make it work, or accepting the reality that it won’t work; is not a waste.

These are the growth points, the great grow-up lessons.

No matter what, don’t give up on seeking good relationships with others.

Our trails, pressures, temptations, successes and failure in relationships chip away our rough edges, shaping us into quality people with the ability to soar and shine in the midst of everything we face.

When we are freed from bondage in a difficult relationship, we like the angels; fly because nothing holds us down.

Today Dan and I will be continuing on the book; ten-minute relaxation, For mind and body by Jennie Harding.

Whenever you are feeling under pressure, ten minutes is all you need to relax totally, using tools that are with you at all times; your senses.

This book is packed full of wonderfully simple ideas and exercises for using sight, taste, smell, hearing, and touch and that vital sixth sense of intuition to rebalance your energies and bring you back into harmony with the natural world around you.

Identify your favorite sensory relaxation solutions and combat that stress!

Per Dan and my experience this is another component in keeping ourselves healthy; meditation.

By using your five senses, you can learn to relax in just ten minutes.


In this chapter we will explore each of the five senses in turn; sight, taste, small, touch, and hearing.

You will discover more about how each sense works.

Then you will find ways to improve your awareness of that sense and its ability to aid relaxation and well-being.

Some of the exercises in the up-coming posts are practical.

Others show you ways to de-stress.

Everyone reacts differently to outside influences.

After a time of pressure, some people prefer to slow down.

While others enjoy the stimulation of a different kind of activity.

Both are beneficial.

Both are available here for you to choose what suits you best.

It’s a good idea to recap all through all the upcoming posts in sequence, then one of the senses that really appeals to you and explore that one first in depth.

You may like to keep notes of your experiences.

So, that you have a personal record of what works for you.

Tomorrow, we will begin on SIGHT-

The PHRASE TO REMEMBER; Health is Wealth.

We stand by this and continue to do daily; walk, meditation, and Qigong.

If you would like to follow with us; hash tag words #walk, #meditation #Qigong on the right of the main blog page.
