Renewal - Fresh Air, Sunlight, and a Little Perspiration
| It's easy to associate our society's increasing levels of illness and disease with our decreasing interactions with the natural environment. Our bodies are designed to function in the presence of lots of fresh air, sunshine, and fresh water. If these natural elements are not available every day, it's no surprise that we suffer the consequences.
Sure, we live much longer than those born in 1200 or 1500 CE. But the Biblical lifespan was "three score and ten". With that as a reference, it doesn't seem as if we've made much progress.
Fresh air, sunlight, and fresh water provide innumerable health benefits. But in most urban environments, we need to actively seek out the natural world. We need to schedule our "sunshine" time to make sure we get out there and catch some rays. We need to schedule time to go to the park and breathe fresher air, air with less pollution and more oxygen. Also, we need to make sure we're drinking plenty of water every day.
