‘It takes more than diet and exercise to avoid heart attacks’

Dr. Meyer Friedman says it takes more than diet and exercise to avoid heart attacks. It also needs a balanced lifestyle and making creative use of leisure. ‘Many people who have paid attention to the body and diet,’ he said, ‘have neglected the spirit and are dying inside.’ He recommends we live more by the calendar than the clock, and ought to make a point of only thinking about one thing at a time, listening without interrupting, reading books that demand concentration, avoiding irritating people, planning for some personal quiet time each day, and, most of all, remembering that things worth being are better than things worth having.
It’s like Jesus said, ‘What good is it if you gain the whole world and lose your own soul.’…’ your life is not measured by the number of things you own.’
