My dear sweet wife commented to me a while back that I am the picture of health, and I should write about how to be healthy, since I obviously know how to do it.

Perhaps my life shows that my teachers are wise. I can’t claim originality for a lot of what follows, but it has worked for me, and my mentors believe these habits work for everyone.

I’m in my mid 60s. She is in her late 30s and says she can’t keep up with me.

What am I doing right?

I follow three rules—Eat, Drink, and Be Merry. Perhaps you saw an abbreviated version of them in an article. It will be here: my ezine articles list.

But don’t take my word for it. Dean Ornish, founder of the Preventive Medicine Research Institute, has some interesting things to say about the good effects of healthful habits on brain cells and your genes. Go here to listen to a TED talk about this.

Click the tabs at the top of this page for more info and some helpful links. Maybe I should say healthful links. I’m eager to see your comments and questions. Feel free to drop me a line at curmudgeon (at sign) writing-rag period com. (I’d write the address the normal way, but I’m told doing this befuddles the spambots.) You’re probably curious, so here’s a picture of us.:
