    Poem recited by a centenarian Ōgimi Resident To keep healthy and have a long life, eat just a little of everything with relish, Go to bed early, get up early, and then go out for a walk.

Spring, summer, fall, winter,  We happily enjoy all the seasons.

    What Exactly is The Diaphragm? The diaphragm is a muscle that sits underneath your ribs separating the thoracic cavity (the space for your heart and lungs) from your abdominal cavity (the space for your guts). When this muscle contracts, it flattens, and draws air into the lungs giving you a healthy breathing. Luckily this muscle contracts involuntarily and works without you thinking about it, keeping you alive 24/7. Despite it working on its own, there

    Physical health may be easy to define as the absence of disease or illness. If your cholesterol levels are in the right zone, good for you, (honestly – this is a good thing) you have optimal cholesterol health.
