This one I meditate daily, “God has not given me a spirit of fear, but of power, of love and a sound mind” (II Timothy 1:7) It pleases God when we think on things beautiful, full of honor, virtue and praise.

Exercise is the best medicine for the brain. Moderately and made aware of its benefits, and combined with the practice of yoga or tai chi for example, disease and keeps away the synaptic and cognitive ability in tune with the needs and circumstances we face in everyday life.

Exercise is one the most safest way to keep fit. We can prevent diseases from happening if we stay healthy. A regular oxygen intake to our bloodstreams can make our brain younger, because we release the toxic wastes from our body and keep a normal blood circulation that helps regulates unwanted fats and cholesterol. I like your post it’s very helpful. Keep up the good work.
