To me, good health is more than just exercise and diet. It’s really a point of view and a mental attitude you have about yourself.
We’ve all pretty much heard the sayings, “Mind over matter” and “you are what you think.”
Albert Schweitzer takes these thoughts a bit farther by sharing his belief that good health goes beyond diet and exercise.
Consider this: good health is contingent on your point of view coupled with your personal mental attitude.
Want to change your health? Change your mind!

I’m glad you think so.:-) Glad i’m here too.
JeffSt And you do it well, Jeff. I’m so glad you’re here!!
Well,…. 🙂 As i’ve said, my main emphasis here is to contribute my experience to the discussion so that others can learn from it, the good and the bad.
JeffSt Gotcha! Thankfully we have the opportunity to “work on it.”
I’s never too late to learn, though sometime even if you know how to use your mind, there will still be stress. I have chronic lower body tension due in big part to what’s NOT been happening to me over the last 24 years, work hard at dealing with it. Massage and acupuncture have helped a lot, but cannot bring the fundamental necessary change by themselves.
JeffSt Yeppers! The mind is a powerful thing – for good or for bad. If we could only learn earlier in life how to harness it to combat stress instead of allowing our stressors to combat us!
The mind-body connection is well-known. I’ve had the misfortune of going through longs periods of stress over the last 24 years or so, and i can tell you from direct experience, verified by my doctors, that being in stress will result in all sorts of physical problems, in spite of bets attempts to have a good diet and lots of exercise. And it can lead to a self-reinforcing cycle, aka feedback.
