Imagine getting sick with fever. In that moment in time, the body feels weak and unable to do anything but sleep and recover. Emotionally, one can feel down or agitated or weak. The idea of someone bringing one food or medicine can be soothing because there is a show of care. In this example, one’s mind, body and emotions are working in concert with one another.
