walk more, eat less, sleep more.

"A vigorous five-mile walk will do more good for an unhappy but otherwise healthy adult than all the medicine and psychology in the world." -Paul Dudley White
Bicycle Industry Gains Political Support
1962: "The American bicycle industry needed political support to win tariff protection and generate public enthusiasm for adult riding. Norman Clarke of the Columbia manufacturing Co., organized a breakfast in Washington, DC so the bicycle industry could state its case. After breakfast, Dr. Paul and Dudley White led a ride to the Capitol and it was an unexpected pleasure for politicians more accustomed to big black limousines. Leading the way were Secretary of Treasury, Douglas Dillion, Dr. White, Congressman Silvio Conte of Massachusetts (to White's left), and Secretary of Interior Stuart Udall." via The National Transportation Library
