Health Nut

26 Mar

Sometimes I think we overreact when it comes to our health, appearances, and well-being. You see all these commercials warning you about eating healthy, losing weight, staying active, drinking responsibly, and not smoking. Those things are all wise, of course, but then you get into all the conflicting views about wellness.

You should have 5 servings of fruits and vegetables per day. But all that acid in the fruit wears away the enamel on your teeth!

Use anti-bacterial EVERYTHING. And screw over your immune system by never building up tolerance for bacteria and germs.

Use a fresh, clean paper towel in your home bathroom every time. And fill up the landfill more quickly.

The truth is, we’re never going to find that perfect system. That exact balance of eating right, taking care of our bodies and minds, not causing waste, protecting ourselves from germs, etc. I just don’t think there’s a way to do it all. Every day we live takes us one day closer to death. That’s a pretty grim fact of life, but it’s true. You might as well live it while you can.

And that means to go ahead and eat that last cookie.
