HIV prevention: mental and physical fitness
by Ruth Bamela Engo, AAA President
Prevention of HIV/AIDS and diseases in general is also about mental and physical fitness.
MENTAL FITNESS involves optimism. It is the readiness to face challenges and Win. It is a decision not to attract pity, the fighting spirit that removes one from the category of victims to a Conqueror status, starting from where you stand.
PHYSICAL FITNESS involves movement. Up and Down; Inspiration and Expiration; Helping the body to fully sustain life and beauty. Mental and Physical fitness are complementary – START ONE AND GET ONE FREE! Mental and Physical fitness is a personal declaration of Love to oneself: I love ME and would make ME be the starting point of a healthy, happy life!
Anyone who walks around Yaoundé, the Capital of Cameroon early mornings and evenings will meet thousands of people who love themselves. People alert with happy faces, young and old. The hills of Mont Febe where many run, walk and dance "Bikutsi Tae Bo" will soon be known as Mont Fitness. Fitness as life style definitely has an impact on the global effort to prevent diseases ... HEALTHY AFRICA, HERE I COME!!!
