MENTAL FITNESS IS AS ESSENTIAL AS PHYSICAL FITNESS


As a single footstep will not make a path on the earth, so a single thought will not make a pathway in the mind. To make a deep physical path, we walk again and again. To make a deep mental path, we must think over and over the kind of thoughts we wish to dominate our lives.

                                                                            ----- Henri David Thoreau.



We often talk of physical exercises for maintaining physical fitness, but very few talk about mental games for becoming mentally fit and nimble. 
 The Studies show that our cerebral cortex remains active as long as we use it regularly. Therefore, it is very much pertinent that we play good quality video or mobile games to boost our reflexes and memory. Other mental games such as chess, sudoku, etc. will also be helpful in this regard. Mental activities are much useful in retaining our minds and reflexes in old age, and we can enjoy 100 years healthy and hearty with our lovely family.
