Throughout January 2012, we’ll be working on the concept of “health.”
All our discussions and activities will aim to help our students understand that being healthy is more than just feeling good. It’s total well-being and freedom from disease.
Powerful Words is the name of our character development curriculum here at Sidekicks Martial Arts. It’s designed by one of the nation’s leading childhood development experts, Dr. Robyn Silverman. Every month, we’ll focus on a different Powerful Word, or concept around character development.
To inspire your own discussions at home, here are five of our all-time favorite quotes about health:
“For he who has health has hope; and he who has hope, has everything.”
“Productive achievement is a consequence and an expression of health and self-esteem, not its cause.”
“The one who thinks about his health only after it is compromised is likely the one who will have to think about his health a great deal.”
—Dr. Robyn Silverman
“The greatest of follies is to sacrifice health for any other kind of happiness.”
“Health is not a condition of matter, but of mind.”
—Mary Baker Eddy
“What is called genius is the abundance of life and health.”
—Henry David Thoreau
