Chapter 1: Move
The Premise: Clear your mind
The Mind and the body work together. Interchangeably, the good you do for your body affects your mind.
When working the body simple exercises to move the body (e.g. walking, running, swimming or any other natural exercises, those without equipment, are sufficient to provide a “clear the mind” opportunity.
For individuals with medical conditions, it is wise to consult your physician before beginning any physical activity. It is wise to “obtain medical clearance.”
