Life is not Rocket Science


Saw the headline today on the BBC that taking low dose aspirin is only good for those who have had heart attacks or stroke. Doesn’t seem to work as a preventative and might cause gastrointestinal bleeds. Guess I’ll ditch taking low dose aspirin, and stick with just the multi-vitamin and some anti-oxidants. At the end of the article http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/health/8338763.stm it says "The best way to reduce your risk of developing this disease is to avoid smoking, eat a diet low in saturated fat and rich in fruit and vegetables and take regular physical activity."

While contemplating this on my drive out to Saint Mary-of-the-Woods College, enjoying the sunshine and fall leaves, it just goes to show, life is not Rocket Science. So here are my top 10 ideas on how to enjoy the non Rocket Science life:

1. Have some faith that God exists and wants good things for you when all is said and done

2. Take a walk in the park on regular occasions no matter the weather and enjoy the serenity

3. Invest in some friendships by being a friend first

4. Take an adventure trip at least once a year, sometimes fun things like a cruise, and sometimes rough it things

5. Go on a mission trip to a third world county and invest some quality time with those less fortunate

6. Challenge you metal ever so often just to see what you’re made of

7. Find a positive group of people to hang around with. Those with a common goal of something inspiring

8. Read regularly and often books that inspire, instruct and grow you as a person

9. Make a commitment to learning truth, but be careful how you share it when you find it

10. Oh yeah, eat right, and exercise every day possible cause you know the good life is not Rocket Science
