Publisher's Summary

This book attempts to establish the correlation between the mind and the body, and how each impacts the other; and at the same time provides operational definitions of the words mind and body. The mind represents more than just the thinking faculty of a person, associated usually with thoughts, ideas, and concepts and the ability to process them. Beyond this usual understanding of what constitutes the mind, I propose that the mind transcends one's thoughts, but also encompasses feelings, emotions, and desires. For the purpose of this book, the mind may refer to one's beliefs and convictions which cover religion or faith of God. In addition, it delves on what constitutes a healthy physical condition as well as mental wellness. A growing body of research sees a strong connection between the physical health and mental wellness. Whatever happens in the physical body has a bearing on a person's mind, and anything that transpires in the mind affects the body as well. What experts are pointing to is that there appears to be interrelatedness if not interdependence between the two. This assertion is similar to what old folds would tell the young regarding the effect, say, of a toothache and a broken heart to one's well-being. Without a doubt, when individuals are suffering from tooth decay, it almost becomes impossible to function both physically and mentally. In the same way, when people are broken-hearted, it is not unlikely that they avoid food, lose appetite, might even end up being depressed, or experience some behavioral aberrations. The illustrations regarding mind-body connection and how each affects the other are nothing new. For example, it has been found that mental health has a lot to do with how a person takes care of their physical body. Studies suggest that a body that is functional will leads to a healthy psyche while a sick corpus translates into a dysfunctional state of the mind.

Great Book

As a former Personal Trainer I knew alot of this already but this book adds serious details to that knowledge. Once you listen and have an understanding of the connection, it really hammers home that you truly benefit from being consistent with your physical activity and nutrition. I really enjoyed it.
