ZEN+ : Helping you Stay Young and Age Well

Why I’m going to spend more time walking around naked…

By Marcus Santer


The Saturday Quote:

“Obese people and those desiring to lose weight should perform hard work before food. Meals should be taken after exertion while still panting from fatigue. They should moreover only eat once per day and take no baths and walk naked as long as possible.”

You’ve heard of Hippocrates right?

The guy the Hippocratic oath is named after.

An oath taken by physicians that includes the line:

“Also, I will, according to my ability and judgement, prescribe a regimen for the health of the sick; but utterly reject harm and mischief.”

So if he suggests you should:

Who am I to argue?

Though I’m not sure what the thinking is behind taking no baths?

But the walking around naked certainly sounds like fun LOL =)

Especially as the Greeks were the first to see nakedness as a heroic state and a spiritual truth.

I also found this which I thought was fun from an old Daily Mail article:

“In Athens, there was also an annual naked celebration in honour of Athena, the city’s patron goddess. Nude young Athenian men ran from a gymnasium on the edge of the city all the way to the Parthenon.

The fatter and slower men were slapped by the watching crowd as they stumbled past.”

And this:

“It’s not as if the Greeks were naked the whole time, such as when they were doing the shopping or eating a meal. But they were naked in the gym; in fact, the word ‘gymnasium’ comes from the Greek ‘gymnos’, meaning ‘naked’.”

Anyway… I’ll leave you with that thought.

Because I’ve got to get back to writing the bumper 3rd Birthday issue of The ZEN+ Journal.

Hey, just cos it’s Saturday don’t mean I get the day off.

One of the many perks of being self-employed dont-cha-know.

And within it’s extra pages I’m currently toying with revealing the core content of my 8th book, though I might keep that for the subject of issue 38 of The Journal…

I haven’t decided yet.

But I will be explaining:

I’ll will be sharing:

And I’ll be answering questions like:

And more.

Hey lot’s to do and only 12 days to do it in.

So I’m off back to work.

And if you’re not a ZEN+ Journal reader yet…

You can change that here.

Bye for now
