Words of Wisdom

Strong and Clear

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

When time is a commodity and it feels like there just isn't enough of you to go around, the first thing we often let slide is our self-care. Not enough time? We stop exercising and sleep less! No time for meal preparation? We eat more fast food! Before long these quick fixes contribute to feeling lousy both inside and out. Taking care of ourselves is a long-term investment that reaches far beyond this moment. It might not be as convenient, but when we are strong-bodied and clear minded, everyone benefits, including the young people we teach each day.

With something to think about . . .

Happy Birthday!
