The Shortform

Physical and Mental Strength

Day One of The Shortform Sprint

We often think, or if we don’t think — we certainly act, like our mind and body are separate.

Our mental and physical health are interconnected — each affecting the other.

Nearly one in three people with a long-term physical health condition also has a mental health problem, most commonly depression or anxiety.

Taking care of both the mind and body feels in balance and shows itself with lower blood pressure, improved sleep, and overall quality of life.




The Shortform is dedicated to the quick read. If you are looking for some tiny nuggets of knowledge or some easy entertainment, you came to the right place. Specially designed for consuming content when you are short on time or energy.
