Sound body, sound mind

' To keep the body in good health is a duty.....otherwise we shall not be able to keep our mind strong and clear.'

When we don't take care of our physical health, problems can crop up. We find ourselves distracted by sickness, poor energy and aches and pains.

Keeping ourselves healthy is about more than avoiding the mental distraction of discomfort. The requirements of good physical health - nourishment, rest, movement - empower our minds, too.

Creative thought, problem-solving, and a calm attitude are enhanced by the same actions that meet our physical needs.

If I'm too busy to care for my body, it will likely affect my thoughts, too. taking the time to eat well and exercise will sharpen and strengthen my mind as well.
