By Martin Goodyer (United Kingdom)

In the absence of disease there are three controllable components to a healthy life.

All three are obvious but on the whole we only pay attention to two of them. Of course, all are ultimately controlled by what we think as everything starts in the mind. Yet although  thinking ultimately controls everything, the way in which we think about three particular things will determine if life is to be healthy and well balanced or not. They are like three legs of a tripod and as with a milk-maids stool they need to be strong and balanced or we wobble and risk a clumsy fall.
