This is the kind of beautiful, simple, sage advice we all need to hear from time to time. If you don’t have a Grandpa who thinks like this, just adopt this one.

“Bo Hong village is 30 minute drive along an unpaved road from Bama city in Guangxi Province. The area is known for it’s long life with many of the villagers living well beyond the average age in China.”

There is a growing “trend” or desire brewing in our larger community to get back to a healthier and simpler way of life, and to take back control of what we eat, and the effect we have on the planet and our own health.

Do a little reading on the topic of permaculture and you’ll suddenly be half torn between two worlds, with a yearning for the old days, and a formula hatching in your mind on how to return.

One fisherman shares with us the secret to long life:

“From the green trees come fresh air.

The air we breath for life…

I fish every morning and evening.

Being out on the water makes me relax, keeps my body active.

If you stay indoors all day, your health will slowly decline.

There are many people who live long in our village.

The old eat well, and still work hard on the farm.

That’s how we remain healthy.
