Good Morning, God!

In reading a post from Treehugger I had jolly good fun seeing what being in ICU with COVID 19 can do to a man’s perspective.  No more ridiculing as a “Nanny State” the idea that perhaps the government could encourage healthy habits . . . .like more exercise and less junk food.

The UK’s National Health Service CEO Sir Simon Stevens has put it very clearly.
The evidence is in: obesity can double your chance of dying from coronavirus. So this pandemic is a call to arms to change what we eat and how we exercise.

Some suggestions are: putting the calorie count on drinks; taxing junk food ads; constructing bike lanes; places to lock up your bike, etc.  All worthy, I suppose.  But, as had been observed — obesity is a fairly intractable problem.

Here is my suggestion –-June Mitchell doing bamboo sticks part one.

Why?  Because, you are not sore afterwards.  Because it is enjoyable.  And because it
seems like a gentle way to begin waking up our bodies.

BEGINNING is the First Step.
