As you discovered, the majority of Americans ride a dangerous rollercoaster as to their own healthcare responsibilities: junk food, fast food, packaged food, GMO food, dyed food, cereal candy food, soda pop, endless TV, obesity, non-exercise, pills for every imaginable ailment, and on and on.

Yes, we need medical doctors for broken bones, lacerations and accidents of all kinds. We need to be stitched up, bones set, trauma care and other medical emergencies.

But when it comes to our long-term health, each of us must take responsibility for our own well-being.

Exercise: in this modern, high stress, sit down to a desk, inside a cubicle work-world---each of us needs 1.5 hours of exercise at least five to six days a week. It can be swimming, rowing, bicycling, walking, running, tennis, racquetball and other aerobic sports that move your blood and work your muscles.

"But I just don't have time," you complain.

Remember where the average male watches 4.1 hours of TV daily, seven days a week? And, women watch 3.6 hours daily, seven days a week? That's mindless, inane and useless time wasted on TV. Invest in your body, mind and spirit in life enhancing activities.

If you suffer depression, instead of taking a pill, exercise more, with more vigor, and with more determination. Exercise ramps up the hormones in your body to clear your mind and chemistry toward optimism and joy.
