Doctor’s Orders

Just last week, when I was at the delightful Ace Hotel in Palm Springs heading towards the pool for the day, I stopped to pick up a towel, a nice big glass of cold water with a slice of lemon, and a magazine.  Sadly they had no fashion magazines or trashy celebrity tabloids available, so I grabbed Wired Magazine which always has something interesting in it to read.

As I was perusing the magazine, very distracted by the scene at the pool, kind of taking note of the cool new smart devices that can be worn like a watch, I stopped short when I came to an article entitled:  “Steve Jobs’ Doctor Wants to Teach You the Formula for Long Life.”  It wasn’t the title that got my attention, it was the picture – so simple and straight-forward.  I loved it.  Especially since I believe in it completely.  (Or almost completely, as I don’t really know what statins are and I don’t take baby asprin.)

So I snapped a picture of it so I could share it on my blog.  Check it out:

Doctor's Orders

Isn’t it cool?  I think it’s cool because it’s really about making sensible choices every day, and none of the choices are bad or difficult or need to be expensive – except for having kids or a dog I suppose.  But I love my coffee in the morning, and my glass of wine with dinner, and salmon is about the most delicious thing in the world to eat, as are fresh fruits and veggies, especially if they’re harvested out of your own garden.  For me that is how I like to take my vitamins – not through pills or juicing which, for the record, I’m not at all against.  They seem to make a lot of people fee great.

Read the full article here if you like, which includes a couple of videos too.  After reading the article I thought, hmmm, I think I would like to have a Fitbit.  Which is funny, because it’s one of those smart devices you wear on arm to track your daily activity, also covered in the magazine.  And I have two of Dr. Agus’s books on hold at the library.  Oh, and see what I mean about the distractions by the pool at the Ace?

It’s easy to get distracted sitting by the pool at the Ace Hotel.  (Imagine a dj playing groovy tunes too.)
