    mind

    Hi there,
    Are the following expressions of 'mind' correct?

    1. A lot of office men will go to gym after work to relax their minds.
    2. Reading more can help us to broaden our minds.

    Many thanks

    pete

    Re: mind

    In sentence #1, "mind" is not necessary and can be omitted. It is not wrong, just superfluous.

    Sentence #2 is fine.
