On Fitting in Exercise: Walking during the noon hour

I sent out an invitation to my colleagues at work to join me for a noon time hike in the country park across the street from our main campus and, happily, had a response from several who hope to join me.
The essential oneness of all the myriad forms and grades of life is one of the fundamental teachings of Bahá’u’lláh. Our physical health is so linked up with our mental, moral and spiritual health, and also with the individual and social health of our fellowmen, nay, even with the life of the animals and plants, that each of these is affected by the others to a far greater extent than is usually realized. There is no command of the Prophet, therefore, to whatever department of life it may primarily refer, which does not concern bodily health.
