YOUR SELF-CONFIDENCE INFLUENCES YOUR HEALTH. [Newspaper Article] — Stawell News and Pleasant Creek Chronicle — 21 March 1914
YOUR SELF-CONFIDENCE INFLU' ENCE3 YOUR HEALTH. ft The state of inirid which \vc know as sclf-confidcncc asserts ;i imirc import ant influence on n person's health than most of us would believe. When wc arc confident the heart beats re gularly and powerfully, making the circulation perfect. The passage of the blood through the arteries and veins every half minute supplies the lymph and the cells of every organ with just what they need, and keeps the body at its highest possible effi ciency. So long as the heart beats in this regular way we do not tire easily, the brain is clear and we judge our own actions and the actions of those about us with fairness. Just because we are confident we arc slow to feci pain. Self-confidence tends to continue the normal action of all the organs, and actually to preserve the continuity of health. The blood-pressure docs not rise too high, the pulse is regular and slow. The skin performs rts func tions perfectly, throwing oil waste pro ducts and reliev...

A few minutes later the rattlo of muske try and a hole in the wing of his machine showed that ho had been es pied by the Russian sentinels.

HOW MUCH FOOD, REST AND WATER? [Newspaper Article] — Stawell News and Pleasant Creek Chronicle — 21 March 1914
HOW MUCH FOOD, RE8T AND WATER? Wo are often asked to stato how much water ono should drink por duy to keep the body in good condition. It requires at least three pintls. (which would bo six ordinary glasses) of water per day to replace what is thrown oft by skin, kidneys and bowls in 24 hours. An .extra amount to flush away poisons ia beneficial. But little of this water should be takon at meal timo, bat rather between meals. As far as food is concerned, one may use the appetite as a guide to quantity of food, provided it is well chewod, well cooked and is freo from condiments Iiko spioos, tea, coffee, salt, popper, and vinegar. ■ One normally requires* eight hours of sleep per day, and r.it does more good when a good share of it ia obtain ed before midnight. Sloep in the latter part of the night only is not as restora tive. Nature keeps strict accounts even in regards to sleep and even if she lets it run five or ten years, the ac count is sottlod sooner or later. If a person is fee...
