No matter where you come from or your background you should strive to be better at all things in life. Be open to learning and try to learn something new every day. If you try to learn something every day it will help you stay sharp in mind and spirit. Not only should you teach your mind but your body. If you teach your mind what you are going to do in a situation it can help but if your body dose not know what to do it can make the situation worse. So you need to try to teach your mind and body together so they are one. As we all know learning can take a toll on our mind and body so make sure as you nurture the spirit as well. I find that meditation helps me bring my mind and spirit back to center as one there are many different types of meditation you should find the one that works for you.
