Vancouver Courier: What is your approach to health and life in general? Most of us use the R-and-R approach (and neither R stands for rest or relaxation). The first R is our everyday mode: routine. We settle into our daily patterns of doing and thinking. Most of us wake up at the same time each morning, eat the same breakfast and go to school or work along the same route. During the day, we’ll have our usual type of lunch and follow a well-worn pattern of activity.
