Einstein refused to believe in Quantum Mechanics because he said “God doesn’t throw the dice”. But life is full of probabilities. It is why we have all heard the story of the guy who smoked 3 packs of cigarettes a day and lived to be 100. A group of 100 of these guys would show 99 of them died long before 100 and suffered horribly. Each decision we make raises or lowers our probability of health and happiness. What you eat raises or lowers the probability of illness. How much stress is on you and for how long raises the probability of becoming ill. Thinking negatively and being depressed raises the probability of illness and lowers the quality of life. We need to start making small changes in our life that shifts the probabilities in a positive direction. If you can’t be a vegetarian, start to reduce the amount of meat you eat. Don’t eat it 3 times a day. Don’t order it on pizza. Start to increase your plant-based foods. Join a yoga class or buy a DVD and practice it to calm yourself and stretch your muscles. Learn meditation to reduce the stress on your life. Start to give as much time to positive things as you do to negative things. Our news is all about negativity because it sells. If you are going to read the news then read stories about people doing positive real things in life. Play more with children. They tend to be more positive. They haven’t fully learned our negativity yet. Doing these things will raise the overall probability of health and happiness. After all it’s your life, live it well! It’s your crap shot!
