Signs of the Times

Topic: Health

[From the Industrial Nurses' Bulletin, New York, New York ]

A goodly number of distinguished physicians have the happy faculty and gift of writing lucidly. Lord Horder of England is one of these gentlemen. Like the traditional physician, he is not only interested in the body, but in the health of the mind as well. He has ... written that the common health cannot be considered properly apart from the common happiness. If this is true, the mind enters into this question quite as much as the body does. And if it be true that it is in the realm of the mind, rather than that of the body, that mankind progresses, then, whatever we do to improve the body, we dare not neglect the mind. There is a state of mental fitness as there is a state of physical fitness.
