Health by Swami Sivananda

Pure water, pure air, wholesome food, physical exercises, Yoga Asana outdoor games, rowing swimming, light games like tennis — all contribute to the maintenance of good health, strength and a high standard of vigour and vitality. Without good health, you cannot penetrate intro hidden depths of the vast ocean of life within and attain the final beatitude of the life eternal. Without good health, you cannot wage war with the turbulent senses and the boisterous mind.

Regular practice of Yogic exercises, even for fifteen minutes a day, will keep you quite fit and make you hale and hearty. You will have abundant energy, muscular strength and nerve-power, a charming personality and longevity. Brain, muscles, organs, tissues are toned and energised. All chronic diseases are rooted out by the practice of Yoga Asana. 

(pg. 19, Sermonettes of Swami Sivananda)
