Your metabolism will speed up, your body’s energy creating capacity is greater and your body is able to eliminate free radicals and waste materials fast. POSTURE

  32. 32. Walking Stand up straight. Think of being a tall and straight. Do not arch your back. Do not lean forward or lean back. Leaning puts strain on the back muscles. Eyes forward, not looking down, rather 20 feet ahead. Chin up (parallel to the ground). This reduces strain on neck and back. Shrug once and let your shoulders fall and relax your shoulders slightly back. Suck in your stomach. Tuck in your behind and rotate your hip forward slightly. This will keep you from arching your back
  33. 33. Sitting A lady who moves with grace and elegance is a woman of poise and beauty. But such a woman is not too common these days, and lucky you are if you hold one of the most cherished graceful manners of traditional women - the graceful way they sit.
  34. 34. How to Sit Gracefully Step as close to the front of the chair as you can. Turn and prepare your body for the sitting posture. As soon as your back leg touches the chair seat, slide one foot back then gracefully lower yourself into the seat, slightly sideways. Your weight should be carried by the thighs of your back leg, not with your knees. Sit up straight with legs together and heels slightly to the rear. You can sit with legs in front of you, angle your knees to either left or right side, or cross your ankles, but never sit with legs apart, it's a mortal sin to poise. If you're crossing your legs at the knees, there should be no space between the heel and the other ankle.
  35. 35. How to Sit Gracefully Place your hands together on your lap. Lengthen your spine, free the neck, and balance the head above the shoulders. In short, sit tall.
  36. 36. GOOD FOOD HABITS Eat slowly, chewing food thoroughly. Food should be eaten slowly, and should be thoroughly masticated. Eat regularly. Regularity in eating is of vital importance. The stomach cannot properly handle a delayed meal. Eat nothing between meals. Never should a morsel of food pass the lips between meals. Eat in cheerful surrounding and with pleasant table conversation. A merry heart does a good like a medicine.
  37. 37. GOOD FOOD HABITS Drink water abundantly between meals. Drink freely, it (water) helps to supply the necessities of the system, and assists nature to resist disease. Drink freely of pure soft water. Use simple methods of food preparation. If you regard your life, you should eat plain food, prepared in the simplest manner.
  38. 38. GOOD FOOD HABITS Cook to preserve food values. There is a way of combining and preparing food that will make it both wholesome and nourishing. There is such a thing as robbing the body of nutrition. Be sure fruits and vegetables are in good condition. More die by eating decayed fruits and decayed vegetables which ferment the stomach and result in blood poisoning, that we have any idea of.
  39. 39. GOOD FOOD HABITS Use mainly natural sweets instead of sugar. Be moderate in the use of all sugars. The free use of sugar in any form tends to clog the system, and is not infrequently a cause of disease. Use natural foods. Grains, fruits, nuts, and vegetables constitute the diet chosen for us by our Creator. These foods, prepared in as simple and natural manner as possible, are the most healthful and nourishing.
  40. 40. A Balanced Diet A balanced diet is one that contains all the nutrients needed by the body in the right amount in a single meal. Protective foods like fruits and vegetables make the eyes clear and bright, the skin rosy, the hair glossy, the gums, teeth, and bones strong and healthy. Body – building foods such as milk, chicken, fish and other protein rich foods keep the muscles firm and strong. Water is also important in having a balanced diet. It is essential for regulating body processes and body temperature.
