Taking care of ourselves

Post by Visser 5 » Wed Jul 28, 2010 11:27 am

Lately I have been thinking more and more about my body and how I take care of it.
I was raised to believe that there are certain rules that you should follow to live a long and healthy life.
I may not always follow these rules, but I know what some of them are;
1. Drink at least 8 glasses of water a day, of 8 FL oz each.
2. Eat right
a. Don't eat greasy foods.
b. Keep your sugar intake down below 15g per day.
c. Keep your salt intake down below 1500 mg per day.
d. Never eat more food then the size of your two fists put together.
3. Exercise for at least 30 minutes a day.
4. Get 8 to 9 hours of sleep a night.
5. Don't smoke
6. Never drink more then 1/4th your body wight in alcohol in less then a month.

What I want to know is, are there any more rules I should try to follow?
What medical problems can following these rules prevent?
Have there been any scientific studies done on any of this?

This is how I "take care of myself" (WARNING: 18+)
Spoiler:
Last night I took part in a “scientific experiment”. By the way, this was a Thursday night. I went over to the home of my two lesbian friends and we sat on their king sized bed. Everyone was given a glass. There were two bottles of red rum (750 mL each) and two 2 L bottles of Cherry Coke. A little rum was poured into each glass, then it was filled the rest of the way with Cherry Coke. Everyone was told to take there time, but as soon as any of the glasses was emptied everyone else had to empty there glass. Then everyone got a refill. During this whole time we listened to music, played cards and talked about what ever came to mind. After about the 3rd or 4th hand of cards one of the girls decided that we should play strip poker. After about the second hand of that we thought it would be fun to play Twister. Man I love those girls.

I definitely don't get that much sleep, but I think I'm okay for the rest of them.

Ooh, I know! Use sunscreen if you're going to be in the sun for more than 15 minutes. (But, if I recall correctly, you live in Washington, so that may not be relevant). And don't use the computer or TV for more than two hours at a time.

Thanks, but just cuz I live in Washington doesn't mean that I never get to see the sun.
It has been rather nice the last few days, if you don't count the sand storm that one day.

I was actually in Seattle a few weeks ago, seeing relatives. It rained most of the time.
