Every day, millions of people embark upon a fitness regimen, which typically has just one concentration of focus thereby missing the total body experience. Living for “total” health is far different from anything else. That’s because it relates to our overall health and well-being. Our work is based around the choices, habits and actions we choose to make on a daily basis.
We each have the opportunity to live our best life in all areas of health and well-being if we take personal responsibility for our daily happiness and self-care without excuses.
When we take care of ourselves through exercise, sleep and good nutritional habits we not only enhance our physical, mental and emotional condition, we also deepen the connection we have with ourselves, others and the environment that surrounds us.
Taking good care of our body is more than just watching the scale. Exercise, nutrition and rest are all vital ingredients in the recipe of healthy living.
Unfortunately, many people don’t exercise on a daily basis. However, exercise is vital for healthy living. It helps you maintain your strength and agility, gives your mental health a boost, and can even help diminish chronic pain. Whether you are generally healthy or are coping with an ongoing disability or health problem, regular exercise will help you stay physically and mentally healthy and improve your confidence.
Think of exercise as joyful movement, any movement, not necessarily something that you have to perform for long painful punishing hours at the gym. Choose an activity that you enjoy. The best form of exercise is the one you’ll actually do and stick with, not the one you think you should do. You can try any activity that involves some type of continuous movement like walking, cycling, swimming, etc.
Then there’s your daily fuel. The foods you eat provide the energy your body needs to function properly. Healthy eating is not about strict nutrition philosophies, staying unrealistically thin, or depriving yourself of the foods you love. Rather it’s about feeling great, having more energy, and keeping your mental and physical well-being as healthy as possible for life. The old adage, ‘you are what you eat,’ is still very-much true. What you consume can affect your immune system, your mood, and your energy levels. Learn more here http://www.genalivings.com/eat-healthy-for-balance-and-wholeness/
Getting the proper amount of rest on a daily basis, like nutrition and exercise, is also important for our minds and bodies to function normally. Sleep is a type of unconsciousness and is a state of being unaware of the world. Sleep is essential to good health and well-being as it refreshes the body and the mind. If you get enough sleep regularly every night you will feel energized and also be able to function better.
To become healthy for life, it’s essential to focus on the four areas of our whole being-ness: The physical, emotional, mental and spiritual. Our mind, body, emotions and spirit are all connected and cannot be separated. These four areas are all aspects of our whole, not separate entities. To alter one, either positively or negatively, influences our whole being.
Quite conceptual, your mind is either a friend or foe. Once you learn how to overcome life’s obstacles you will walk a path that is beneficial to you.
Your feelings and emotional state can affect your physical body and overall health. Negative emotions are a natural part of normal living but if prolonged, they can lead to an increased risk of many disease processes and can even shorten your life. Developing an optimistic attitude however can decrease your risk of disease and increase your longevity.
Healthy living is achieved when our moods improve, we have more energy, less stress, clearer eyes, more mental clarity, more strength and stamina, a clearer completion, better sleep patterns and a lifetime of health and happiness. I’d say that makes it wondrous. We learn to love, honour, and respect our body temple because our bodies are the vehicles that house our thoughts, emotions and our spirits. We ought to take the time to give thanks and appreciate our bodies for the many ways that they serve us here on earth.
As we grow deeper in our awareness, we begin to notice the changes in our bodies and we gain an even deeper sense of well-being and happiness that is consistent and sustainable for life. We learn to grow more peaceful “within” because we are evolving on the inside and becoming a stronger, healthier person and moving toward our highest self.
