Edmund Pezalla, M.D., M. P. H., poetically states, “if you can run, run. If you can bike, bike. If you can walk, walk. Whatever activity you can handle, it’s important to move your body and engage your mind.” Let’s commit to some sort of regular exercise activity that engages our minds.
“A sound mind in a sound body” is based on a quotation by the Greek philosopher Thales (624-546 BC). Improving physical health will also improve mental health. Daily habits to keep moving like exercise does not only control weight but it may also prevent health issues that affect our minds & diseases that attack our bodies. We should place every effort into keep moving so we can be healthier physically & mentally.
Staying active also improves our mood and definitely boost our energy. Our bodies crave being active. We are meant to move so why fight against such a natural occurrence? Think about how we feel during exercise. “My creative juices flow during my runs. I am more energized and excited about the rest of my day.” -IAmMsPrissy™. Staying active improves the quality of our lives.
Armand Tecco, M.Ed. says, “If you don’t use your body you will surely lose it.” So why take a chance to lose a body that does not belong to us; that was bought with a price. “Do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit within you, which you have from God?” -1 Corinthians 6:19.
So I am working towards a personal goal to regularly keep it moving that leads to a healthier body and a spiritually sound mind.
Please join and make the commitment.
