• 1. Turn all care out of your head as soon as you mount the chaise.
    2. Do not think about frugality: your health is worth more than it can cost.
    3. Do not continue any day's journey to fatigue.
    4. Take now and then a day's rest.
    5. Get a smart seasickness if you can.
    6. Cast away all anxiety, and keep your mind easy.
    This last direction is the principal; with an unquiet mind neither exercise, nor diet, nor physic can be of much use.
