It is not hard to imagine that a lot of people would disagree. Or that it may not appear to be true for a lot of people.
But it is true for me. I am at my most natural when I get lots of long, slow, gentle exercise and lots of rest. That gives my body a feeling of well-being, my emotional life stabilizes, and my mind becomes sharper.
This is how I follow Emerson's injunction: "First, be a good animal".
Even if you are not an exersize obsessive, have you discovered what your body needs to thrive? Do you give your body what it needs to be a good animal? What do you do to follow its natural rhythms?
