"At the work or at play, still the mind is an integral part of "us" as a whole, an integral part of Being, and we must take care of its health, just as we must our physical body...

Neglect the mind and we suffer, we might become poorly. We may find it difficult to be happy, difficult to cope. We might struggle to survive or thrive at home as well as in the work place."
