"A lot of us are working hard at living long
these days," notes the writer. "Exercising regularly.
Eating well. Trying to cut back on bad habits. And
it's all great, because it's working. "But
there's evidence that something else could help us
live longer. Something very easy to do.
"`Love and health go hand in
hand,' says Peter Hansen, a therapist consultant who
conducts workshops in getting people's

Harvard. Measurements were made of a germ-fighting
substance in the saliva of people before and after

the nun whose charitable works earned her a Nobel
"Without a doubt, the
film on Mother Teresa was kindest to the viewer's
immune systems. Levels of IG-A (an immune agent

deep inside our cells responds positively when we feel
love. Love appears capable of sparking healthy
"Dr. Robert Taylor, a
psychiatrist from California, thinks it may boil down
to love's potential for being a great reducer of
stress. `When people have close relationships, they
feel less threatened, less alone, more confident and
more in control. Knowing you have people you can turn
to in times of need can provide some very important
feelings of security, optimism and hope--all of which

merely loving someone else.
Rules For Getting Well and Staying Well
The main secrets to a healthy life are:
1. Be thankful.
2. Bless the lives of others.
3. Healthy people serve others while the unhealthy are
too often consumed with themselves and their own
4. Learn to forgive and let go, so you can get on with
your life. Many studies have now shown that forgiving
enhances health and helps prevent chemical changes in
the body that may lead to disease.
5. Live in harmony with those around you. Be a
6. Learn to accept whatever decision is made. Do your
best to keep your peace of mind. Peace is a
7. Learn from your mistakes and allow others to do the
same. Don't stand over people and supervise every
move. Learn to give others the opportunity to grow and
8. Don't talk about your misfortunes or illnesses. It
doesn't do any good for you or the other person you
tell, and it presents an opportunity for them to do
the same to you. Save it for your doctor. He's paid to
listen to your problems.
9. Don't gossip. Gossip that comes through the
grapevine is usually sour grapes. Be a person who
speaks for the one who can not. (It is also a
sign of unhealthy pride)
10. Spend 10 minutes a day meditating on how you can
become a better person. Replace negative thoughts with
positive ones. Listen to and follow your
11. Exercise daily.
a. Keep your spine and joints
b. Develop your abdominal
c. Expand your lungs with
specific exercises on a regular schedule.
d. Keep flexible and
12. Walk 10 minutes barefoot in the dewy grass or sand
everyday. You'll sleep better.
13. No smoking or drinking alcohol or caffeine. Both
nicotine and alcohol are depressant drugs. Both
require energy to detoxify the body, which energy is
better used for life and healing processes. Avoid
anything that is addictive or habit forming.
14. Go to bed by 9 pm when you can. If you are tired
during the day, rest more. Rest allows the body to
give its full attention and energy to healing and
rebuilding tissues. Write down your problems at the
end of the day and go over them first thing in the
morning when you are refreshed, so you can look at
them with a fresh mind and body.
Let's not take a 1 minute irritation and turn it
into an hour, month, year or lifetime canker.
Loni Anderson said she refused to be unhappy over
her break up with Burt Reynolds because she didn't
like what it does to your face.
Zen and the Art of Stress Maintenance
The Five All-Time Best Stress-Reducing Tips:
1. Get Organized: Put things back
where they belong, and you won't have to go berserk
looking for "lost" stuff.
2. Live in the Present: Kids do
this. For them, yesterday was a million years
ago, and tomorrow is far, far away.
3. Help Others: A lot of stress
occurs when we get too wrapped up in ourselves.
4. Laugh: If you can find humor in
a problem, it's half-solved.
5. Let Other People Do Their Own Thing:
You are not the general manager of the universe.
Another word for Love is Charity -
Be willing to let others learn on you.

Study by David Snowdon at the University of Kentucky
shows that happy thoughts ward off disease and promote
longevity. He analyzed the writings of 180 elderly
nuns. He found those who used key words such
as"happy", "joy," "love," hopeful," and content"
frequently lived as much as 10 years longer than those
who didn't. This confirms previous studies he said, as
it has long been known that depression, hostility,
anger, hatred and anxiety can cause illness and
