When your Nerve Force is at a low ebb, you are inclined to develop an inferiority complex and can easily lose your self-confidence. As you start to feel inferior you begin to fear that someone else may take away anyone who is near and dear to you. There is just one way to defeat this gnawing fear. You must build your Nerve Force so high by natural living that any feeling of inferiority will leave you forever! Jealousy is something all humans must fight. We can love someone, but that does not mean that we own that person. As you build your Nerve Force, you will see the wisdom of letting every person live their own personal life.

Build your Nerve Force so high that you will be above jealousy and the fear of losing your loved ones. Love is the strongest force in the world! Give love and you will be loved in return. Remember that you can never lose one whom you love and who loves you. If you do lose your beloved to someone else, you may be sure that he or she was not really your beloved in the first place! You must remember that there are plenty of fickle people in the world and there is no use crying over their loss. In such cases, one might do well to remember this wise classic saying:

‘Tis better to have loved and lost
than never to have loved at all –
or better still, its paraphrase:
‘Tis better to have loved and lost – Lots better!

The fear of being alone and unloved – although it haunts many people – is a groundless one. There is always someone who needs your love and who needs to love you. “Seek and ye shall find.” All you need is the confidence that comes with health and a powerful Nerve Force!

Walk 2 to 3 Miles Daily – It Does Miracles!

Excerpt from Bragg’s Healthy Heart Book – Chapter 9

You should try to walk 2 to 3 miles daily, and some times try doubling it. Don’t give yourself excuses. Make a daily walk a permanent part of your Bragg Healthy Heart Fitness Program – all year and in all climates. Conrad Hilton walked in the sun and rain and loved it. Regardless of what other exercise you do, your daily walk is a must! Of course, you may take it in the form of golf if you enjoy this social sport. But it’s best not to ride around the golf course in an electric cart! This makes a farce of the whole thing.

Walking is what your heart needs. We are inclined to agree with Mark Twain, who said, golf is a good way to spoil a good walk. But, if it takes the game to make you walk, do so. The result is almost the same – healthily functioning muscles and quickened blood circulation, plus a sense of harmony and happiness. Although the outdoors is preferable – where you can get the most fresh air – indoor walking is far better than none at all. In winter, you can try hallways, porches or shopping malls. When on health crusades around the world, we take an evening brisk walk through the corridors, and up and down the stairs of our hotel. If a roof terrace is available, we prefer this open-air space.

To Enjoy Your Daily Walk Is Important
Your walking should never be done self-consciously, no heel and toe routine and no time limiting. Let it be the most functional and enjoyable of exercises. Walk naturally, with head high, spine stretched up, chest out and tummy in. Swing your hips, arms and body into action. Walk as though your legs began at the middle of your torso. Breathe deeply! You will feel physical elation and will carry yourself proudly with body erect and arms swinging easily from your shoulders.

Move at your own pace, with a free spirit and a light heart. If you want, listen to motivational tapes or music. As you walk, your body ceases to matter, you become as near a poet and nature philosopher as you will ever be. Walk your worries away! As blood courses through your arteries, cleansing and nourishing your body, you are filled with a sense of well-being that clears your mind of troubles and nourishes it with positive thoughts. As we stride along on our hike, we say to ourselves and sometimes aloud with each step – Health! Strength! Youth! Vitality! Love! for Eternity!

It’s beneficial to also take a hiking tour once a year. Select interesting areas which you, your family and friends would like to see, and hike about 15 miles daily. You will broaden your knowledge of our beautiful planet and of Mother Nature, as well as help to build a more powerful, healthier and long-lasting heart.
