A famous college president was once asked for the secret of living which had enabled him to do so much work, and still remain in excellent health. He replied, “My secret is that I .never ran when I could walk, never walked when I could stand, never stood when I could sit, and never sat when I could lie down.” As a matter of fact, in nine cases out of ten, a much better procedure would be to reverse this rule, and never lie down when you can sit, never sit when you can stand, never stand when when you can walk, and never walk when you can run. Certainly for some men the first rule is the correct one; but for most men the second is the basis on which their physical life should be built.
