"Take care of yourself"

Men in general believe that in order to keep well, one must observe certain rules regarding food, hygiene, and so forth. The humanly friendly advice, "Take care of yourself," has often been confined to concern for one's physical well-being.

In the Christian Science textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," Mary Baker Eddy writes (P. 383), "We need a clean body and a clean mind," and adds, "The pure and exalting influence of the divine Mind on the body is requisite, and the Christian Scientist takes the best care of his body when he leaves it most out of his thought, and, like the Apostle Paul, is 'willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord.'
