World Health Organization (WHO), it is a “State of complete physical, mental, and social well being, and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.” Health is a dynamic condition resulting from a body’s constant adjustment and adaptation in response to stresses and changes in the environment for maintaining an inner equilibrium called homeostasis.
1. Think Before Yout Eat:- The rule of good health is to eat the right food in the right quantity at the right time. We all know that too much of sugar is associated with diabetes, too much of salt is associated with high blood pressure, too much of fat is associated with heart attacks, eating commercial foods is associated with cancer. We also know that a high fiber diet comprising vegetables and fruits is protective against all these ailments. Accordingly we should eat a balanced diet comprising of white meat, lentils and grains, fruits and vegetables and dairy products such as skimmed milk etc. and should avoid excess sugar, salts and commercial foods. A large breakfast, a moderate lunch and a light dinner provides the right quantity of food at the right time. Calorie, fiber and other charts given in this book will help you plan a healthy diet.
2. Think Before You Act:- This maxim advises that we should look deeply upon the matter and think over on how it is to be done before we begin to act and also it warns that if we do not do so, we will be put into troubles after having done it wrongly.
This maxim advocates everyone who intends to excel in his endeavor. It stresses that one must be aware of planning before he begins to act on how to undertake the work. If a person wants to start a business or a project, he must plan the procedure to be followed and the methods of doing. Also, he must analyze the dos and don’ts and the pros and cons that may arise on the course of undertaking. During this analysis he can be fully aware of his venture and so he can eliminate the hurdles and hazards. Moreover he can require knowledge to rectify the unforeseen problems. The Tamil Poet and Sage Thiruvalluvar states to think and analyze thoroughly and then act accordingly and it is unwise to repent after starting to act for wrong manipulation.
Once there lived a rich man called Venkat. He reared a puppy called Tingu. It grew up into a brave faithful dog. One day, Venkat and his wife went out for shopping, leaving their little son under the care of Tingu. When they returned in the evening the dog ran out to greet his master. Venkat was shocked to find the dog’s mouth with blood. Alarmed for his child, he runs up to the cradle but he found the child missing. Seeing the ground covered with blood, he concluded that the dog had killed the baby and so he killed the dog. Just then he heard the baby’s cry and rushed there. He saw the baby unhurt and close to the dead wolf, the dog had killed. He repented for his not thinking before acting.
So, whatever we do and whatsoever manner we have, we should think before we begin to act. No action is correct which is done on the furious mood. We should apply our intellect and intelligence before we take the final decision and act upon those decisions. Because man is by nature an animal of instinct. We are moved by our emotions rather than by our wisdom. In order to save ourselves from the trap of emotions, we have to be cautious of our actions. Then only our future will be happy and peaceful.
