For those of you who drive a car, you will know that you need to service it regularly, to try and ensure it continues to work both smoothly and efficiently. You’ll also know that within a car there are a number of parts that must remain lubricated to ensure they don’t get rusty, and then breakdown, so the oil level in the car must be checked regularly.
Just as there are several things we must do regularly to ensure our vehicles run smoothly, so there are some things we can do to help keep our bodies healthier.
Cheerfulness sharpens the edge and removes the rust from the mind. A joyous heart supplies oil to our inward machinery, and makes the whole of our powers work with ease and efficiency; hence it is of the utmost importance that we maintain a contented, cheerful, genial disposition.James H. Aughey
