Kabbalists Like Sports

Dr. Michael LaitmanA question I received: What is a Kabbalist’s position on sports and a healthy lifestyle?

My Answer: Kabbalists are in favor of healthy lifestyles. Baal HaSulam used to like to swim out to the ships in the harbor. My Teacher Rabash and I would frequently go to the gym, the sauna, and swim at least 400 strokes in the sea. I currently ride a bike for 1.5 hours, swim 400 strokes, power walk for 1 hour, and work out every morning. A person needs to take care of his body, otherwise it can’t serve him.

  1. Taking care of the body involves more than just exercise. Fresh air, decent food and enough sleep are also part of a healthy lifestyle. How can one’s body serve him if he is sleep deprived from nights spent studying?

  2. Let the light and group energize you!
