Exercise  -  Exercise daily for at least one-half hour.   Walking is the best excerise for everybody of all ages.  Take it easy at first increasing little by little.

There are thousands who sacrifice their health and happiness for lack of exercise. Some excuse themselves from working to preserve the beauty of their hands, not realizing that they are wrecking the whole body by doing nothing! Others try to preserve their beauty by avoiding the rays of the sun though without which no one can live the full length of his time and long remain happy while he lives.

   The bee that faithfully labors all summer, when winter comes has plenty to eat and some to spare for a hungry man that cannot manufacture his own honey, while the grasshopper by wasting his time singing all summer long is starving during the winter in the cold. The plant that is raised in the shade is weak and pale and if exposed to the sun too late, instead of receiving its natural beauty, it withers away. Those who are living wrongly, when they start correcting their habits they begin to feel the same effects, but instead of continuing in the right course they excuse themselves from reforming and go back treading in the same old crooked road.

Digestion Aided by moderate Exercise

"Exercise is important to digestion, and to a healthy condition of the body and mind.   You need physical exercise.   Healthy, active exercise is what you need.  This will invigorate the mind.   Neither study nor violent exercise should be engaged in immediately after a full meal; this would be a violation of the laws of the system.  Immediately after eating there is a strong draft upon the nervous energy.   The brain force is called into active exercise to assist the stomach; therefore, when the mind or body is taxed heavily after eating, the process of digestion is hindered."   The vitality of the system, which is needed to carry on the work in one direction, is called away and set to work in another.   Councils on Diet and Foods p. 103
