Body and mind are said to be intimately interconnected. The well-being of body is closely connected with the well-being of mind and vice-versa. If either of the two goes wrong it directly affects the other. As a result total health of the mind depends on whether we direct our thoughts positively or negatively. The positive emotions such as love, joy, happiness, excitement, compassion etc promote the well being of nervous system and make mind and body healthy. On the other hand negative emotions like anger, fear , jealousy, despair, etc are harmful to the body. A person with positive thought is selfless and eager to serve, share and sacrifice for the welfare of others. And by contrast persons of ill will are selfish, fearful, sinful and stressful.
