This book is about Outdoor Lifestyle. Learn How To Vastly Improve Your Chance of Living A Long And Happy Life by cultivating a Healthy Outdoor Lifestyle!
Play is the most natural thing in the world but we must use judgment in our play. A boy or girl who is not allowed to play or who is restrained by too anxious parents is unhappy indeed.
Nearly all animals play. We know, for instance, that puppies, kittens, and lambs are playful.
It is a perfectly natural instinct. By proper play we build up our bodies and train our minds. The healthy man never gets too old to play.
He may not care to play marbles or roll hoops, but he will find his pleasure in some game or sport like tennis, golf, horseback riding, camping, fishing or hunting.
In this book we shall talk about some forms of play and recreation that are not strictly confined to children, but which we may still enjoy even after we have become grown men and women.
This book is about Play and Outdoor Lifestyle. It is a lifestyle that everyone should cultivate in order to live a long and happy life.
If we live a natural, open-air life we shall have but little need of doctors or medicine. Many of our grandmothers' notions on how to keep well have changed in recent years.
Old-fashioned remedies made from roots and herbs have been almost completely replaced by better habits of life and common-sense ideas.
We used to believe that night air was largely responsible for fevers and colds. Doctors now say that one of the surest ways to keep well is to live and sleep in the open air.
In many modern houses the whole family is provided with outside sleeping porches with absolutely no protection from the outside air but the roof.
I have followed the practice of sleeping in the open air for some time, and in midwinter without discomfort have had the temperature of my sleeping porch fall to six degrees below zero.
Of course it is foolish for any one to sleep exposed to rain or snow or to think that there is any benefit to be derived from being cold or uncomfortable.
The whole idea of open-air sleeping is to breathe pure, fresh air in place of the atmosphere of a house which, under the best conditions, is full of dust and germs.
If we become outdoor sleepers, coughs and colds will be almost unknown. General Sherman once wrote a letter in which he said that he did not have a case of cold in his entire army and he attributed it to the fact that his soldiers slept and lived in the open air.
