Week of January 26 - February 01, 2015

“Life can be much simplified by simple living. The time saved can be used on better things than catering to the body. Simple outdoor exercise, such as walking; proper eating; eating less; chewing your food well; eating plenteously of fresh fruits and vegetables, thinking not of your taste alone but of your health; avoiding starches; bathing daily; and quiet meditation – all are conducive to health.”

 - Paramahansa Yogananda
