How to Be Healthy: As Told by Elise
Eat mostly vegetables,
fiber, fiber fiber.
unless it's as part of fruit.
Or you've gone without it for so long
you just can't bear it anymore.
Eat things so tasty it tickles your toes.
Move your body.
Stretch your muscles,
work out the kinks.
Make it sweat
make it hurt.
Make it feel better later.
Above all things,
always be moving.
Explore your mind.
Read, write. Listen to music.
Listen to pop, listen to Liszt.
Listen to it all.
Read it all.
Build towers and towers of books you have
or may someday, read.
"Without new experiences,
something inside us sleeps."
Never sleep, always experience.
Experience the beach, the sea, the mountains,
the plains, the cities, the country.
All countries, as many as you can.
Be outside often.
Experience peoples, places, things.
Do it all and you'll always be
happy, healthy, and independent.
