The Body, Mind, Mood Connection

June 1, 2012
Patrice Bohn, LCSW - Family Service of the Chautauqua Region , The Post-Journal

Many years ago, I read an article that examined longevity and quality of life. A particular centenarian was asked about his secret to a long and happy life. His reply was unforgettable: "Keep your bowels empty and your mind full." Crude as this may sound, it contains a wealth of wisdom. The more we know about the wonders of the human body and the mind, the more we marvel at the intricate connection between the two. It stands to reason that the care we give to our bodies has an impact on our brain functioning and mental health.
