That expression ~ when someone is of sound mind and body ~ I never gave it much thought before. And then about 6 months ago my Mom started having short term memory loss. It has rapidly sent her into a precarious state of being. Although she is not sick physically, her mind has taken it's toll on her body. Dementia causes disorientation, weakness and instability.  Your brain, like your body, is a muscle, you've heard it before, use it or loose it. Be active, exercises, eat well, keep learning, keep doing, honor yourself and find what brings you joy and do more of that, and then ~ REPEAT.
