Interestingly, when I was in a highly competetive sport in my late teens-early 20s I was very fit and also think it is the only time in my life I was a free-spirited 'happy' person, but maybe we all were in our early 20's compared.

Do many out here find it very beneficial? Thanks.

Well, mental exercise brings you into the body, and out of the mind. 99 percent of the problems are mind created -- one feels more natural, more healthy when doing exercise
