M. K. Gandhi

Although he rebelled during his teenage years, Gandhi had an innate desire to find Truth, and during his time in London, he continually experimented with vegetarianism. The concept of peace-based resistance, Satyagraha, evolved from his research on racial prejudice towards South African Indians before being applied to Indians living under British rule. Through understanding the opposing viewpoint and constantly developing himself through dietary and other measures, Gandhi and his pursuit of Truth inspire us to keep questioning ourselves and the world around us. A healthy mind requires regular exercise. Gandhi didn't like sports as a child; taking long walks was his habit. In his autobiography, Gandhi stresses the importance of exercising to improve performance. He took good care of his body through exercise and a healthy diet. Even if you don't follow Gandhi's radical experiments, you can achieve a healthy mind by eating well and exercising regularly.
