The mind and the body are inextricably entwined, and rarely are their inseparability clearer than when we're under some kind of mental pressure.

My most annoying habit is complaining about my aches and pains. It's the new ones that I haven't identified yet that make me nervous. According to my wife, I complain way too much. I may be a borderline hypochondriac, or you could say I am fascinated by the body - at least by mine.

I think it's really important for kids to see how you handle that.
C. S. Lewis
