    Mental Health
    To enjoy physical health, you need to take care of diet and exercise.
    To enjoy mental health, you really, truly need to practice the dharma.
    Buddha: "Bhikkhus, there are these two kinds of illness. Which two? Bodily illness and mental illness. People are found who can claim to enjoy bodily health for one, two, three, four, and five years; for ten, twenty, thirty, forty, and fifty years; and even for a hundred years and more. But apart from those whose taints have been destroyed, it is hard to find people in the world who can claim to enjoy mental health even for a moment." - Roga Sutta

    Physical health also affect mental health I would say hehe.
    Before I have the condition for the dharma, physical exercise and diet and sleep was what carried me through a highly stressful school and job. Even during dark nights too!

    Haha yea agree. I have a lot of anxiety also last time.
    I use running to solve. About 30 mins the endorphins will come out and feel better 😂
    if run long there’s a samadhi which is very blissful so I used to run marathons 😂😂
    Weight training doesn’t seem to have this blissful ness
