Does morbidity drag you down? :.

Does hypochondria make you sick?

Health is mainly a DIY thing -

Starting young can do the trick.

Lay the groundwork early

Foundations of fitness set

Withstand the sresses of later years

So...on your marks...get set!!

A challenging poem particularly for those of us who have crossed the threshold to become pensioners. I have spent most of my life pursuing a regime of regular activity and some adherence to a sensible diet, forever conscious of what may lie ahead in the twilight years. Then last year I was struck down by the need for open heart surgery to replace my aorta valve. This had a profound physical and mental affect. I agree with your words on line three but also feel that as time is running out I might as well allow myself some over indulgence when it comes to wine and pipe tobacco. Line two I agree with as it can be the cause of some anxiety. A brief poem for some serious meditation as we make our way toward the ultimate destination.

Thank you for this

Too many us realise too late in life that the level of health and fitness most of us enjoyed in our youth departs very gradually until we suddenly notice the state we have allowed ourselves to get in. A sage reminder MCN.
