How is Bisi Alimi healthy?

Taking him for a walk in the morning 
allows me to work my body
as I am not a gym person.


When I was asked to write about how I keep healthy, I thought it was going to be very easy... until I started writing. I realized I hardly have a clue in regards to what I've been doing to stay healthy for over 35 years, and why I hardly ever visit the doctor.

So after a great and good laugh at myself and knowing that I have to send this in, I took stock of my life and realized that yes, I do some things that I can consider to be healthy. To many people, it might sound a bit lame, but in all honesty, these are things that have kept me going for years.

Every morning when I wake up, I try to start with a very clear and positive mind. This is very important and it sets the pace for a better day, and a positive mind relaxes the face and the muscles and makes for great smiles.

I get up to feed my dog. Having a dog gives me a good sense of responsibility and accountability, it also give me the opportunity to show my love to someone. In return my dog's loyalty is amazing and out of this world. Taking him for a walk in the morning allows me to work my body - as I am not a gym person. We walk about 45 minutes everyday, and listening to music while we walk sets me in the right mood.

I love to eat very healthy, I am very conscious of what goes into my mouth, and for this reason, I do my own cooking, buy my own vegetables, meat and necessary items needed for cooking - to me this is very therapeutic.
I love to have good sex, this might sound funny, but I have come to realize that having a good and positive attitude towards sex has helped me keep fit, and the process of having a romantic sexual experience on its own is very healthy.

Finally, I love to relax after work, and indulge in little sinful pleasures. However, I don’t smoke and I do don't drugs. I think this has helped my body system to work very well.

So for me, waking up in good spirits in the morning, being responsible to my pet and walking him regularly, home made cooking made with fresh ingredients, and good romantic sex are my secrets to being healthy.
