Own your Day, your Health, and your Safety: No one will substitute to your pain

Do you think the health of Bipeds Humanoid is that different from the animal kingdom?

A couple of centuries ago, mankind was already in a trend of extinction, until medical discovery, better health care, hygiene, and infant mortality was reduced qualitatively. Vaccination and pregnancy care managed to increase mankind to 7 billion, doubling every 30 years…

I am not talking of these “one in a thousand” of the 7 billion human living on earth. These exceptions to the rule live a lifestyle where there are no appreciable distinctions between day and night, winter or summer season, circadian cycles…The only common factor they share with the common mortals is the inevitable death, when death comes

It is not that the “one in a thousand” species or “elite classes” in every State consider that “slaves” are necessary for the maintenance of social structures and are fundamental for any sustained economy and development of political systems.

It is not that the “one in a thousand” species doesn’t comprehend that “slavery is the worst indignity that mankind can suffer” (Simon Bolivar), but even worst, they want to impose on the common mankind their own rules that say: “there are no difference between day and night, winter or summer…and that the slaves have to deal with all the weather inconvenience, circadian cycle imbalances in energy, nutritional quality, clothing quality…The slaves have to deal with life hardships and keep at the beck and command of the elite classes dictate”.

Obviously, the elite class needs a mediator class: It wouldn’t touch the poor with a long pole; it refuses to be subjected to any temptation of close encounter with the “lower classes“…Any close bodily interaction might result in serious reflection, and the Temple might crumble…

In winter, most animal sleep far more than in warmer seasons: The common mortal has to wake up at the same hour, work the same number of work-day, perform as during warmer seasons…rain or shine, blizzard, tornadoes, hurricanes, frozen roads…The common mortal is commanded to deal with weather conditions any which way…The factories must function as usual, production must be sustained…

In summer time, most animals suffer from the heat: They seek shelter to cool off, and they sleep during the peek of hot hours…The common mortal must deal with crazy suffocating conditions, any which way, and is refused a napping period…Most animals have figured out the best moments to sleep and feed…The common mortal must sleep and eat at any time the boss commands him to.

Sure, mankind is not to just emulate the animal kingdom behaviors, but he has to demonstrate that he is not far more stupid than animal behavior.  Man has got to learn to obey what his body requires for the long haul.

As kids,  mankind sleeps a lot.  As they grow up they don’t feel like taking naps, but they feel sleepy by late evening, and do sleep anywhere they are… As they reached 50 years, their bodies need to nap after heavy meals, they need more sleeping hours in cold seasons, they need more time for the body to recover and stabilize and reach a sort of equilibrium for set performances…

When I was a kid, I don’t recall anything of eating, sleeping, or pissing, cold or hot weather…The body recovered quickly.  Now I need to wake up when the air has warmed up (around 9 am), I need a nap that might extend to 2 hours, I need to exercise lightly and stretch all my joints for at least 30 minutes before I attempt any activities… My body has set a different standard that I should be aware of, follow…lest I get sick, catch cold, have stomach ache, …

When I was a kid, I don’t recall sitting for a bowel movement…Let me be frank, currently If I have a satisfying bowel movement in the morning, I feel that I own the day. Nothing can touch me for the day, and I feel confident that I will not feel sick for the day…If I wait for the evening for a creamy and easy movement, it is difficult for me to go to sleep: I feel that I can go on for most of the night…If I fail to consciously try a bowel movement during one day, I am in deep trouble.

The power of the “will” means to train your brain to remember that the body can come to the rescue when feeling sleepy, apathetic, anxious… All that you may have to do is react, stand up, hop around, have a good stroll, dance, sing, shout, and just let the body get busy.

Do your best to Own your Day and your Health.  Forget the abstract notions for a moment: Your health is first, and you remember that fact when sick.  You realize that no one can substitute for your sick body and mind: Your health is your responsibility.

Fail to own your health and body, and get crippled by the age of 50.  Who care to live to be 80 if all these extended years are just succession of pains, suffering, medication, hard of hearing, almost blind, unable to walk, to read, to listen to music, to connect with the community…?

Do your best to Own your Day, your Health, and your Safety: You should be in command if you train your mind and body to obey basic common sense feedback
