THE 2016 A TO Z CHALLENGE: D IS FOR ........

 WELCOME TO DAY 4 OF THE A TO Z CHALLENGE:
MY THEME IS HOW TO MAINTAIN A HEALTHY BODY
AND MIND
 THE PAUL MCKENNA PHD:WAY.
D IS FOR
We are what we eat,
Is very often said.
Plenty of fruit, veg and grain,
When our tummies need to be fed.
 
A healthy diet is a must,
To achieve healthy living.
To eat too much chocolate etc,
Would be unforgiving.
 
One must not forget the drinking,
No! not the scotch or gin.
But plenty of fresh water,
To hydrate us, also good for our skin.
 
So along with less anxiety,
Keep our brain active and confidence,
A healthy eating habit
Is only common sense.
 
Yvonne Lewis

  5. I should eat so good! I am not to bad, but there is so much "bad" food that is so good that it is hard to be good! Great poem and a good reminder to be better disciplined when it comes to what we do put in our bodies!
