Just the name Michael Moore sets people off, many think he is a left wing wacko and only picks on the conservative right. In reality he is a thinking man with many thought provoking ideas as well as being the author of several books and producer of several movies. In at least one of those books he is pretty hard on Democrats as well as Republicans. Few people probably realize that. He recently published a Michael Moore's Action Plan: 15 Things Every American Can Do Right Now. At the end of the article he has five things we can do to protect ourselves. I liked the last one so here it is:
Find a place of peace in your life and make the choice to be around people who are not full of negativity and cynicism. Look for those who nurture and love. Turn off the TV and the Blackberry and go for a 30-minute walk every day. Eat fruits and vegetables and cut down on anything that has sugar, high fructose corn syrup, white flour or too much sodium (salt) in it (and, as Michael Pollan says, "Eat (real) food, not too much, mostly plants"). Get seven hours of sleep each night and take the time to read a book a month. I know this sounds like I've turned into your grandma, but, dammit, take a good hard look at Granny -- she's fit, she's rested and she knows the names of both of her U.S. Senators without having to Google them. We might do well to listen to her.
Last, go see his latest movie: Capitalism: A Love Story
