MONDAY MUSINGS: Good health advice from a woman’s health book from 1852


From a Health book 1852

Necessity Of Change Of Air

An occasional change of air may be said to be almost necessary to the perfect well-being of every man. The workman must leave his workshop, the student his library, and the lawyer his office, or sooner or later his health will pay the penalty; and this, no matter how great his temperance in eating and drinking; no matter how vigorously and regularly he uses his limbs, no matter how open, and dry, and free from sources of impurity may be the air of the place in which he is employed.

Restores Healthy Balance

In the slightest causes of impaired health the sleeping in the suburbs of the town in which the life is chiefly spent, or even spending a few hours of detached days in some accessible rural districts at a few miles distance from the dwelling, may suffice to restore the healthy balance of the bodily functions, and maintain the bodily machine in a fit state for its duties; or in cases of somewhat more aggravated character, a more decided change of air, for even a few days, once or twice a year, may suffice to adjust or restore the due economy of the system.
