Meet Mark

Let me introduce myself. My name is Mark Sisson. I’m 63 years young. I live and work in Malibu, California. In a past life I was a professional marathoner and triathlete.

…and a Pinch of Humor

By Mark Sisson

Achieving great health is a lifelong journey. For me, great health means many things: having energy, being strong and fit, fostering healthy relationships, keeping my brain sharp, and eating nutritious, enjoyable food that helps me prevent major health problems. That’s my recipe, and given the fast-paced nature of life (and Mondays in particular) I think a little dose of humor rounds it out. Having a laugh is one of the best things you can do for your health.

A few gems for your Monday Moment:

“Researchers have discovered that chocolate produces some of the same reactions in the brain as marijuana. The researchers also discovered other similarities between the two but can’t remember what they are.” – Matt Lauer

“Food is an important part of a balanced diet.” – Fran Lebowitz

“I work so hard to stay in shape. Whenever I read anything, it says, ‘Consult your doctor before doing any exercise.’ It always says that. Does anybody do that? I kind of think my doctor has people coming in with serious problems. I don’t think I should be calling him and saying, ‘Hi, this is Rita, I’m thinking of bending at the waist.’ ” – Rita Rudner

“A contemporary comforted me with the observation that it’s nice, as one approaches 50, to discover what one wants to be when one grows up.” – George V. Higgins

“He was a great patriot, a humanitarian, a loyal friend; provided, of course, he really is dead.” – Voltaire

“Happiness is nothing more than good health and a bad memory.” – Albert Schweitzer

And I couldn’t resist…

“Health nuts are going to feel stupid someday, lying in hospitals dying of nothing.” – Redd Foxx
