Now, we are all reminded and authorized to make our bodies... to hold our bodies in good posture, that's upright. Not to bend. Not bending. That makes the skeleton unhealthy and not strong, as well. So, we are advised to have a rest. After working, we have to work more. We should also make some time for what now? For resting. -Is that clear? -Yes. Maybe it might be during the night or during the day. You can also have a rest. When we have finished our duties, we can also have a rest. When we have a lot of work to do. We are usually tired by the end of the day. The body gets tired, doesn't it? Your body requires some rest One should not only rest at night. Even during the day one can find time to do what? Take a nap. That's just resting. To keep your skeleton what? Strong. Are you following? You must have enough rest. It is important to rest.

You may have bread with milk. And you may take an egg, a fruit. By doing so, you have made your meal. The meal which you have taken has got all the food groups. In the noon, it's also the same. If you are having nsima, nsima with beans - there must be vegetables there. There's fruit there. In that way, you are taking food consisting of all food groups. If we do all these things then...

Your skeleton and your posture. You may find that your legs start bowing. You'll end up with bowed legs... You are lacking something in your body. Do you get me?
