Cheerful Conversation and Long Journeys

Live in rooms full of light
Avoid heavy food
Be moderate in the drinking of wine
Take massage, baths, exercise and gymnastics
Fight insomnia with gentle rocking or the sound of running water
Change surroundings and take long journeys
Strictly avoid frightening ideas
Indulge in cheerful conversations and amusements
Listen to music.
-Aulus Cornelius Celsus, ca. 25 BCE - ca. 50 CE
